Hi guys,

I'm a PADI AOW from Edinburgh checking in and saying hello. If you're ever up in my neck of the woods it'd be good to put some names to faces.

Hi Gavin, nice to have you with us.  I'm from Glasgow, but not in a club - clubs and I do not mix.  It's a long story!  Keep blowing bubbles & be safe. :luxhello:

Hey Gavin,

Welcome aboard mate. The troop are organising another trip to St Abbs in the near future - you're more than welcome to join. Look forward to seeing you on the boards.

Cheers

Hi Gavin

Welcome to our little home from home

I'm gonna be at Abbs this weekend no matter what... I was let down badly last Sunday and couldn't get anyone interested at the last moment and so spent all day Sunday sulking like a baby.. booohooo!

Hope to meet up and get wet real soon mate.

As there are a few sweaties on the board now it should be easier to get a load of YDers together more often, somewhere near the border... Abbs or the Farnes etc

Best Regards
Dave :biggrin:

I've got to come clean and tell you that I'm an Englishman up here after marrying a Scot.

Like Frog I haven't got a club but do dive with a bunch of Edinburgh guys and I also pop off to Oban now and then with the missus as buddy. Stress or what?

I'll be down in N Berwick next weekend both Sat and Sun unless England make the WC final.

I would dive more but Mrs Gavster is more interesting in sailing than diving and most of the guys I dive with are out on Friday nights in N Berwick which is a long way from sunny Glasgow.

If anybody either Glasgow (I work in Glasgow) or Edinburgh based fancy a pint and chat I'm always up for that.

Welcome aboard Gavin - its been a while since I've been in the fair city of Edinburgh (last time must have been 10 years ago, trying to beat the row off pubs behind Princess Street!).

May see you at St Abbs soonish if you are up for it.

Regards

When will the next Abbs trip be? Or is it still in the planning stage? If there's anything I can do to assist with this I'd be willing to lend a hand/fin.

Wotcha. I'm just a bloody colonial, also living in Edinburgh but getting married to an Irish lass though so guess I can almost be let off? :spank:

Drift,

As for weekend 29/30 I'll see if we've got any rib space if we have then I'll mail you pronto and get you booked.

As for beer just mail us when you've got a spare one (not Thursdays) cos that's cricket night !!(I know)

Strange to hear that drinking beer makes you a "stroke" - shame really - I always thought that I was Drinkin' It Right.

See you soon

Gav
