Greetings from Sunken Treasure Scuba Center,
OK I lied, there is another newsletter this summer because things just keep changing and we're trying to keep up with summer. We've added additional training dives to the schedule below. If there is a dive you'd like us to run call and we'll see what we can do. This Saturday August 17th we 're having a cleanup at Jay Street. All are welcome to come help. Our Annual BBQ is Saturday, August 31st, STSC Customer Appreciation Day at Dutch Springs is October 6th and the U/W Pumpkin Caring contest is October 13th.
Don't own gear yet or no one to dive with? Well August 18th is our last free gear day this season so there's no reason not to dive. By the way....chances are I'll be sending out another newsletter.
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

Special Dive this Saturday at 5:00pm not listed on the site - Peak Performance Buoyancy if anyone is interested.

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.
STSC’s Annual BBQ
The kids are starting to get those school supplies and as we realize the summer season is starting to wind down I would like to invite you to STSC's BBQ on Saturday, August 31 at 4pm. On thing for sure, we shouldn't have to worry about cold weather. So bring a guest and your favorite dish along with a lawn chair. Oh and some good diving stories to share. This is open to any certified diver. See You There.
