It was great to catch-up with divers from Eastbourne's Sovereign Divers and Tunbridge Wells Sub Aqua Club on Wednesday night. Simple plan that worked well, gather a pile of divers, talk about diving, watch some diving video and films, talk more diving , eat some snacks , drink some refreshments on and talk more diving! Anyone would think it was a February evening in a village hall full of divers ... er yes!
I usually find divers around the world are good mixers and with a shared interest it's not too difficult to bring things together. Jamie from TWSAC gave a briefing on diving on the wreck of the Holland submarine , a protected wreck near Beachy Head. We saw some video of the wreck and the viz was sooo good , it positively says 'come-on, come and take a look at me' , Jamie is the Licence holder and if you dive with him you can make a a 'look don't touch' dive on this most important of hostorical wrecks. And it's on our doorstep for goodness sakes ...what are you waiting for !
Well done to Tad for sorting out the technical stuff , thanks to the MDers for providing the refeshments ...very popular cakes Sheila ! All in all a very simple but good hearted get together . As a divers bunch of divers it's really good to get together. Networking ...it's what networks do well! So MDers ...lets do the circuit and make sure we follow-up the invites!
