Hi all We will be holding our July General Meeting on Tuesday 16th July at The Water Rat Hotel, 256 Moray Street, South Melbourne. As usual we will meet in the bar from 19.00 with the meeting starting at 20.00 sharp. Our guest speaker this month will be Geelong Diver Jim Anderson. For those that remember the news story Jim is the diver that found and returned the 150 year old beer to the McEwens Brewery in Scotland. Jim will be talking about the early days of Melbourne Diving and particularly the rediscovery of many of the wrecks scuttled in the Ships Graveyard. This should be a great prezzy especially for the rust lovers in the club. Inaddition to Jim’s presentation we will bring you up to date on what’s been happening around the club including our trip to dive with the Bull Sharks in Fiji and our recent efforts to dive the SS Glenelg. Finally we will judge the June photo contest so don’t forget to get your entries in.
Our next club meeting is next Tuesday. As usual we will meet in the bar at The Water Rat Hotel, 256 Moray Street, South Melbourne from 7.00pm with the meeting starting at 8.00pm.
Our guest presenter for the night will be Richard Casley who will talk about his passion for diving for fossilised Megalodon teeth. What started out as fossil hunting in Port Phillip Bay has developed and taken Richard across the globe to fossil diving hotspots.
As usual we will bring you up to speed on what’s been happening around the club and what we have planned for the future.
We will be holding our July General Meeting on Tuesday 17th July at The Water Rat Hotel, South Melbourne.
Our special guest presenter will be John Lippman, Executive Director of DAN Asia Pacific.
John’s presentation will focus on post dive incident indicators, immediate care and evacuation, and as always, you will get the correct information from this industry icon. John is an extensively published author of some of the best texts and manuals ever written about diving safety coming from a diver for divers. His books are written in easy to understand terminology making it possible for all divers to understand the material.
John has been the driving force behind the growth and proliferation of DAN in our region, with a growth in membership, so comes a growth in demands and services. Nowadays, DAN doesn’t just provide advice and evacuation cover for divers but additionally a broad range of courses for the diver and non diver alike.
In addition to John’s presentation we will update on whats been going on around the club and also on whats coming up and as usual we will judge the VSAG Photo contest for the previous month.
As usual we will be in the bar for drinks and a meal from 7pm.
All members, their guests and prospective members are welcome to attend.
See you on the night
