Any eBay experts out there?

Dear all

Having gone through the stores a lot of old, but still useable, dive gear has been identified (such as BCDs, ABLJs, emergency cylinders, etc) as no longer needed by the Club but sellable and therefore worthy of making a bit of cash for Club funds.  However what’s needed is someone with a bit of ‘business acumen’ (i.e. you have a bit of experience selling on eBay / similar) to make this happen!

If you’re willing to take this task on please let either Steve Cox or myself know; all help much appreciated.

Club Constitution

20180710-PDCSAC Constitution V4

Dear all

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…the latest version of the Constitution!

This has gone through a fairly major re-hash with a lot of input from a number of Club members and you’ll be pleased to hear is now quite a bit shorter than previous iterations so worth a read; it is after all your Club.  That said there are some subtle changes to it, not least that the Diving Safety Management System (DSMS) now exists as a separate document but should be read in conjunction with the Constitution; Steve Cox, The Diving Officer, has already published the latest version of the DSMS on the Diving Safety portal of the website.  Also all Committee Members, Officers, Dive Managers and Instructors are to sign to say they have read and understood the Constitution (and by default also the DSMS which is an Enclosure to it); I will hold a hard copy version of the Constitution for signing.

Regards

Guy Balmer (Chairman)

 

 

 

Buoyancy Workshop – Tue 26 Feb 19

Dear all

On 26 Feb Cal, Eddie and I will be running a buoyancy workshop in the Dockyard swimming pool for all Club members to practice / hone their skills ready for the forthcoming diving season.  As with last year there will be a series of ‘mini exercises’ to complete underwater to test / re-learn (!) your buoyancy skills, manoeuvrability under water and kit configuration; for those who have yet to get into the pool this year it will also be an opportunity to  ensure your kit is all working as it should and to revise other skills like mask clearing, etc.

Timings

From 1700 – Boathouse open to sort kit

1800 – briefing for all

1830 – move to pool

1900 – set up exercises

1915 – first run throughs

By 2100 – clear of pool

OC – return kit to Boathouse and depart

BSAC Normandy 75 Expedition

Dear all

There has been some interest already in my earlier post about the Club getting involved in the above expedition next year.  If you are interested, even if tentatively at this stage, please let me know by 10 Sep 18  so we have an idea of the overall level of interest.
