Social Hour Before the General Meeting

Join us at a local restraunt before the next General Meeting. Anytime after 5:30 and there should be a few members hanging around. Stop by for drinks, appetizers, dinner, or just to say hi.

We will pick the location a day or two before the meeting, and post it on Facebook, and on the website home page

These get-togethers are meant to help answer questions and talk with new or less active members. We'll tell you about the latest club news and hear about your interests in diving.

If you are an active member, please come out and help us greet people.

Hope to see you there!

Every month there is also a meeting where the officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
