    Hello from Bali. Our summer travel for the club has started with the BVI trip. Looking forward to pictures and the trip report.

    Spring has sprung and the weather is ready to cool off diving. Ryan has a lot of local dives scheduled, come out and look for the flora and fauna we hear about in our monthly presentations. Many of our members are diving actively currently in addition to our dedicated bridge divers. Please keep an eye on upcoming dives and join in if you are inclined. It is always a lot of fun catching up on the boat and having lunch afterward with friends.

    There are several positions on the Board of Directors where help would be greatly appreciated. It is a great opportunity to learn about the club and our membership. The members that volunteer their time would appreciate some new blood to join the BoD and help guide the club into the future.

    Our overseas participation has dropped this year compared to last year, this is a major benefit of our club and source of revenue. If you have locations you would like to visit, please let Nils know so he can look for good deals at DEMA this fall.

    The club has been growing at a faster rate than since I joined the club, please come to meetings and help our club grow.

    Happy diving,

    Chris Hardham
    President
