Hi folks,
         Due to boat difficulties I've had to change the dates of this gig to the 6/7/8th Sept. The plan remains the same mixture of Sound of Mull/ Coll/ Tiree/ Bo Fascadale. Again I'll sort out exactly what we're doing probably on the Friday night through a confab with the skipper about current weather conditions, tides, etc.
Costs are;
£106.50(3 days diving + 3 night accomodation)
This price is based on 10 divers, less is more, more is less. I can take 12, 20 or 24.

Extras;
£5 per head bung at the end for deckhands
£11.50 p.p.p.n for extra night accomodation for them that want it.

Deffos;
(1)Me,
(2)Liz Rimer,
(3)Chris Hall,
(4)Julia C,
(5)Nick,
(6)Edward Haynes,
(7)Sacramento Tony(2 days),
(8)Mark Davies(2 days),
(9)Tony(Parahandy),
(10)John Mitchell,
(11)Gavin Yates,
(12)Fiona Yates.

That's now boat number 1 full(12 divers). If I get another 3 definates quick enough then I'll take Alans 2nd boat i.e. 10 on each boat. I can take up to another 7 assuming boats and accomodation is still there.

Possies for 2nd boat;
(13)Dave Williamson,
(14)Dave Williamson's Buddy,
(15)Kev W,
(16)Bob Allison,
(17)

Links;
Accomodation
Boats


Nitrox is available on-site but let me know beforehand if you wish it as they sometimes need to order it in specially. It costs 1p/per litre + air fill.(Nitrox is ordered)

I've still got at least 3 spaces for this one. Post here, PM me or preferably mail me at
[email protected]


I love it when a plan comes together

Peter

Ah Bugger balls.

Sorry Peter but I won't be able to make this weekend if I do the Plymouth trip the w/e before - I'd be hanged!

Looks like your gonna have to take me off the list.

And I really did want to do this as well.

Does this clash with Tony from Sacramento's trip over to the UK, where some of us were doing Anglesey again?

Chris Hall, you're currently on two dive trips that weekend mate

WooooHoooo!  Wreck diving in Scotland!  I can't wait!  Thanks for letting me join in!  As you can probably guess, there aren't a whole lot of wrecks to dive in northern California.  Actually, there are none....

But I was diving in my local lake (Folsom Lake) this past weekend and did find a broken canoe oar... which is about as close to a wreck as I can get here in Sacramento.


Now I have an excuse for getting a dive camera setup!

Ohhhh You're Tony.
   I had thought about saying to you but I thought Manchester was as far as you wanted to go.
 Welcome aboard and I suppose I'd better come up with something good now that you're coming all this way. I'll try not to dissapoint.
  Mail me on the above address and I'll add you to the group. It's just easier if I can spit any questions away or answer them on my Outlook express.

Peter
PS-Chris/Tony-Who's Jules? Is that Julia C or someone I don't have on the above deffos list yet?
PPS-Please advise about cylinders? Will you get them down there or will I get something sorted up here?

I am jules, I thought we had established that! When I went to set up my YD account someone else already had "Jules" so I had to think of a different name so I just used my real one.

sorry mate it's a fella, but last time he booked onto a trip to dive with me he mercilessly blew me out when he remembered that he had to go to a mates wedding. So i refuse to name him until such time as I get to look at his PDA and double check that it says he is diving with me  AND that none of his mates are getting married same weekend. Until then I am definately playing hard to get and leaving my options open.

Well Peter,
Looking forward to the trip North, just in case anyones wondering what the hell Bo Fascadale is have a gander at http://www1.arcl.ed.ac.uk/scotfed/scotdive/bofascad.html
A MUST DO dive weather permitting. Its reputedly the best drop off dive in Scotland.

Yeah Tony,
                 I'm doing the same as last time and I'll get a word doccy made up to send away to everyone with all the directions, links, general info.
  But it does look good. Two day of wrecks and one day of that sounds like a plan to me.

<font color='#736AFF'>Peter,

If you haven't already heard from Gavin, put us down for two places please.

What do you need by way of cash - when and how?

Cheers

Fi

PS.  Hopefully no little last-minute accidents this time eh?

Fiona- That's you and Gav down. If one of you can E-mail me as I've lost all my addresses about a month ago so I don't have yours anymore. I'll get you put on the group info list.

Dave- The best I can do for you is to start filling up the 2nd boat as you seem unsure and I'd always said when I ran the next one I'd give Gav and Fi 1st refusal due to Gavs cock-up on the last one. Hope you understand!!!!

<font color='#728FCE'>If anyone is travelling from below Scotland & needs directions, I can produce routes on Autoroute2002, so e-mail me your address and I'll print off a route and send it on.

Looking forward to meeting you all at Mull.

Cheers
Chris & Liz

No problem Peter, I'd never argue with the lovely Fiona and I know my place... As I say it's not yet confirmed anyway but the only reason I didn't do the  Angelsey ll trip was cos I wanted to save my pennies for Mull again... It's Gods country and top diving to boot so I'm hoping to be there especially as it seems there's some excellent company to keep.

Watch this space

Dave

<font color='#736AFF'>Awww, Davie!! you're such a smooth talker.

Well, I suggest a few others get their names down and we can try to fill two boats.  

Sounds like excellent diving/fun/company.

Am looking forward to it already...
