Life Guard Rota
As a condition of our pool booking with the Spectrum we are required to provide a lifeguard.

Failure to provide a lifeguard will result in our booking being cancelled and we will lose the Spectrum for good.

No lifeguard = No training = No Pool. Simples.

Last Weekend

Last weekend was a busy weekend for us and I would like to say thank you to everybody who helped out on Saturday with our entry into the Godalming Carnival, and also to Mark and Annie for marshalling soft boat and hard boat trips. Chris Day has said he will buy you all a pint ;)

 

Carnivals

Guildford BSAC has entered a float the Farnham carnival.

 

The float will consist of one of the boats being towed in the procession adorned and festooned with BSAC banners and some club members walking along side handing out leaflets.

 

The Farnham carnival is on Saturday 28th June. If you are able to help out on either day, then please get in touch.

 

Contact Dave for more details.

Cornwall

Jerry Sutton is organising a weekends diving in North Cornwall on the 18th – 21st July. For those who did not go last year, it is the same place as they film Doc Martin.

 

The diving really is fantastic, with the wreck of the Sphene being a real show stopper. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jU-vG4q9JQ)


The admin for this trip could not be easier, the campsite (with added free roaming chickens and if we are lucky Duncan's desiccated van rat may still be there!) is a short stumble from the launch point and the pub!  There are numerous other options for staying in the area if you don't relish the life under canvas.

 

However, this trip is quite a large planning overhead and fiscal outlay booking campsites so if you are coming please let me know the following:

1) Your name!

2) Your diver grade and prefered depth / type of dive (ie wreck, reef or drift) 

3) What days you would like to dive

4) If you would like to camp and if so on which nights.

 

Slightly nearer the time Jerry will ask for a small deposit to cover camping and towing.

 

Soft Boats

James Paddison is organising a trip to the Shirala on the 21st June, please contact James if you would like to go on this trip.

 

Otherwise Hannah will assume that all the instructors are free to go to Wraysbury for a day and help her with tuition J

Piney agreed at the EGM to run a trip to St Abbs on the August Bank holiday.  He is currently out of the country and his assistant marshal Nikki Turner has agreed to start collecting names and arranging the caravans.  If you are interested in going please could you contact Nikki.  She will need the following info:
1) Your name!
