If you've gone on an interesting trip, or seen done some great diving, this is your meeting! Each year we ask the members to give a presentation to the members. If you have an idea for something you'd like to talk about, email Joy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each person would have 5-10 minutes and will need to bring their presentation on a thumb drive so we can put it up on the screen.

It's that time of year again! At the November General meeting we will be holding elections for the 2015 officer positions.
ANYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO RUN FOR ANY POSITIONS! Some officers may be running again, but don't let that stop you from running - we'd love to have elections with multiple candidates.

Cashes Ledge, located about 80 miles east of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, is a unique underwater mountain range which provides refuge for a vibrant, diverse world of ocean wildlife. If not protected soon, it will face devastating threats.
Cashes Ledge is important not only to marine life but also to scientists hoping to learn about the health and function of New England’s oceans – many scientists believe that Cashes Ledge represents the best remaining example of an undisturbed Gulf of Maine ecosystem. As a result, scientists have used Cashes Ledge as an underwater laboratory for decades.
Modern commercial fishing technologies make Cashes Ledge extremely susceptible to damage from bottom trawling gear. A trawl could strip clear the kelp forest on Ammen Rock and completely alter the ecosystem that depends on it for decades or more. Some anemone populations could take up to 230 years to recover from a single drag of a bottom trawl.
Bottom trawling and scallop dredging on Cashes Ledge has been banned for over a decade, but the New England Fishery Management Council recently voted to reverse even these temporary protections and open Cashes Ledge to trawling.
Cashes Ledge needs permanent protection. CLF is committed to securing permanent protection to ensure the long-term health of this important and vulnerable ecosystem. Please join us in working to protect this world class undersea treasure.
