Greetings from Sunken Treasure Scuba Center,
Two newsletters in the same month, the heat must be getting to me. So chances are this is the last newsletter of the summer but there are a few things I thought I should get out. First, for last minute things that come up the best place to get that info is from our Facebook accounts (Rich Best or Sunken Treasure Scuba Center). We don't want you to miss out and everyone is welcome to join in. If you haven't please friend us on Facebook and we're always happy when someone writes a nice review about us.
Don't own gear and no one to dive with? Well August 18th is our last free gear day this season so there's no reason not to dive. August 31st is the BBQ at the scuba center. This is the time and place to see old friends or meet new ones that have the same interest as you....DIVING.
Special Store Hours:
8/23 - 8/25 - Gold Prospecting Specialty Course near Byron, Maine so hours may vary.
9/1 - STSC goes to fall hours: M&F 5-9pm T&T 10-5pm Sat 9:30-1pm
9/13 -9/14 - The store will be closed
Our October dive trip to Bonaire now has a second space open. We are looking for a female diver and a male diver to share a room with divers we already have. I believe is one of the nicest place to dive in the Caribbean. I truly believe it is getting better every time we go back. What more information call Rich at the scuba center 570.398.1458
Not on the Schedule
Special Dive this Saturday at 5:00pm not listed on the site - Peak Performance Buoyancy if anyone is interested.
Watch Facebook for up and coming news on a special Jay Street cleanup that we are just setting up a date for. We also plan to have a OTS Full Face Mask demo day where you can try one and we'll also be bringing a couple of under water metal detectors to play with.
Scuba Course starting in Jersey Shore on Tuesday, August 13.
ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT
So there is only one week left of STSC's Discover Local Diving Treasure Hunt, There is no cost just go dive one of the local dive site and you may just be a winner, We have cards scattered at over 6 different dive sites. This week we had three winners, so get out there before the contest ends Monday July 29 at 8:00pm. You could be a winner.
Our plan is to giveaway a minimum of 10 prizes each week for 4 weeks. A diver would only be able to win one prize a week. Our team will be placing new items out each week therefore the items your looking for would only be valid for only one week even if they were not found. You wouldn’t know what you won until the item found is turned in. The event is open to all certified divers and costs nothing to enter. We want you to “Discover Local Diving” and find a prize or two along the way.
If we extend this event due to water conditions we'll let you know on Facebook.
How to enter: Get dive buddy. Go dive locally. Find tag to claim prize. Cost to play: Nothing
Completing your Scuba Certification...
To complete your certification you must complete your open water dives. Please remember that you have only 12 months to complete open water dives or you will be required to take a scuba review (cost $39.95). As time nears you can call the store to make arrangements to do your dives. Group training dives during the summer are $35.00/dive and $45.00/dive from September 1st thru May 31st. Please call or email us about one week before the desired dates. If these dates don't work you can schedule dives by appointment. Cost is $40/dive in the summer and $50/dive in the winter. All equipment needed for these dives is included in the cost (excluding mask, snorkel fins & boots). Four Dives are required for certification which we do two dives a day. First day all divers meet at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center and return to the store on the last day. Please remember the first day we will take your photo for certification and you must bring your eRDP, log book and your DVD must be returned.
