STSC Annual Wine & Cheese Party ....
The warmer weather is just around the corner and dive season is about to start for most of us, Friday, March 16 is your chance to stop by the store and sample some wine & cheese and see your summer friends. Why not bring a bottle of your favorite wine to share. Our annual Wine & Cheese Party is one of the most highly attended events each year and we hope to see even more people this year. Party starts at 6:30pm. Bring a friend and help increase the "fun factor"! Remember, this event is open to all divers and their guests over the age of 21.
Equipment Specialist Course
Don’t miss a dive due to a scuba gear issue. Whether it's a blown o-ring, regulator problem, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, you can learn how to manage basic scuba equipment adjustments.
As a PADI Equipment Specialist, you are prepared for the basic scuba equipment maintenance, care and adjustments you'll encounter every day. In addition, you'll learn interesting background information about how your gear works, how it’s repaired and other information that helps you with your equipment investment.
The Fun Part
The more you know about how your dive gear works, the more
♦ Comfortable you are with it
♦ Performance you get from it
♦ You can care for it
♦ Since no dives are required, this is the time of the year to take this program
This program meets at 6:30pm on 3/26 & 4/2 at STSC with Rich, Travis & Mark
Please pre-register by 3/23 so we have enough materials for everyone.
Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
Program meets at Sunken Treasure at 6:30pm on 3/30. Classroom and pool dates would be setup at the first class, while open water training dates would be determined when weather allows.
