Greetings from Sunken Treasure Scuba Center
Wow, it's October 3rd but the weather sure doesn't seem like it. If you haven't been diving you're missing some of the best we've had this year. We were still diving in shorties at the end of September with water temps right around 80 degrees and visibility almost 60 feet.
We still have a few things going on with this being a big weekend. A river cleanup at Jay Street is this Saturday. Sunken Treasure's Customer Appreciation Day is Sunday at Dutch Springs. With a selection of Adventure Dives you could even complete your Advanced Open Water Course this weekend. Dives will include Night, Navigation, Deep, Wreck, Nitrox and Dive Against Debris.
Next weekend is our Annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving contest. Don't forget to mark your calendar for December 8th so you don't miss our Christmas Party.
Finally Sunken Treasure Scuba Center will be closed from October 31 thru November 3rd so our staff can go to the international trade show.
One final thing is we're considering a trip in February to swim with the Manatees. This is normally a long weekend trip leaving on Thursday to Orlando. Friday we swim with the Manatees and drift dive the Rainbow River. Saturday we travel up to north central Florida to dive Ginnie Springs and they return to Orlando for a evening at City Walk. Sunday we go to either Epcot or Universal Studios. Return home on Monday. This is a high paced nonstop trip. If you're interested let me know by November 15th.
Sunken Treasure Scuba Center will be closed from October 31st through November 3rd so the staff can attend the DEMA Show (The Diving Equipment & Marketing Association). This is our yearly chance to see new products coming into the industry, learn new information about diving programs and find dive destinations that just might be fun to take our divers to. It's been four years since we've been there so we are hoping to find the latest and greatest the diving industry has to offer.

Cleanup - Volunteers Needed for October 7th
Since 1984 Sunken Treasure Scuba Center has been involved with local waterway debris cleanups along with our partners, PADI Project AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility, and Education) and Clinton County Cleanscapes. Since 2000 when we started keeping records we have removed over 11,000 tires and tons of other trash from our local waterways. Though we remove trash anytime we dive, our last scheduled event this year will be October 7th, The focuswill be from the Jay Street bridge to the dam. We'll need people on shore, in the water, photographers, boaters/boats and even a couple of people to collect data. So there is room for everyone to help. For more information or to volunteer please call Rich Best by October 6th at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center - 570-398-1458 - email@example.com.
STSC Customer Appreciation Day
Sunken Treasure Scuba Center Customer Appreciation Day is Sunday, October 8th at Dutch Springs. It's the only 6 pak dive to Dutch Springs each year. We'll also have just a fun dive, while the STSC staff will be running Deep, Wreck and Nitrox Adventure dives that count towards an Advanced Open Water Diver Certification or that PADI Specialty. So stop in the store and get your discount coupon for entry to Dutch Springs. Save a few bucks, make a couple of dives, eat our food and enjoy the day diving with your friends from Sunken Treasure.
U/W Pumpkin Carving Contest.....Hard to believe October is just around the corner and we want you to come out and care pumpkins UNDERWATER. The air should be brisk and the leaves turning colors. October is the perfect time for that last Pennsylvania dive of the season. Sunken Treasure will help celebrate that dive with a pumpkin carve on Saturday, October 15th beginning at 12:00pm. The dive site will be the Jay Street Bridge in Lock Haven. STSC will supply the pumpkins, cider, and donuts. You supply the dive knife, imagination and skill.
Pre-registration is required by October 11th to participate in the dive, so we have enough pumpkins.
Enriched Air (Nitrox) - Program
So whether you're into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater and this course counts towards you're Advanced and the Master Scuba Diver program.
With Enriched Air (Nitrox), you can get it...Take a minute and look at your dive tables! How would you like to increase your bottom time at 55 feet to 155 minutes or 80 feet for 55 minutes? Now with enriched air 36, you can. One of PADI's most popular specialties is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. Diving with enriched air nitrox lets you safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means more time underwater - but you need to be certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills.
