Hi all

As suggested on the main stoney thread I thought I would start the ball rolling for those of us that require a buddy for the day. So here's me.

I'm a PADI Rescue Diver with only 66 dives logged....only 2 in the UK so far. By then I should have my drystuit sorted. So anyone willing to buddy with a new Drysuit diver please shout.

Also if anyone has space in a car going past or near Cambridge (or anywhere accesible from there) then I would much appreciate it
.

Another thing occurred to me, as a PADI certified Public Transport Diver, I need to hire tanks and weights for the day, should we get a list together of what we require so we can book them at Stoney or beg/borrow/steal from fellow YD'ers?

Cheers

Conor

Me - I'll need a buddy, AOW 70 dives - mainly (80%) UK, Stoney and Sea. Have D/s and full kit so nothing required other than a Buddy, dont want to do the HydroBox, too cold too dark and too boring.
Arriving about 10.30 - no way am I getting my arse up at silly o clock on a Saturday.

Ok,

I'll need a buddy too. Will dive with pretty much anyone.

AOW, 50ish dives (half UK), only been to Stoney 4 times. Probably want to do the usual stuff on the 20m shelf, will be diving 15+pony.

Also not keen on getting up too early, so I'll probably be trying to arrive at a more 'civilised' time too.

PADI OWSI, BSAC DL, lots of dives rest on stoney thread here

Looking for a buddy, will be in DS with 12 ltr cyl, pretty good on air. Never done Stoney so would like someone who knows the layout reasonably well (but I get the feeling getting lost won't be a problem - just follow the closest pair heading sort of homeish!!)

Pretty easy on doing anything you want, it'll all be new to me there!!

Hey Nigel,

I'm trying to tidy-up the Stoney gig attendance list. Can you please confirm/deny that you are number 23 on the current list or whether that is a separate Nigel?? If it's not you, I need to get you on the list!

Cheers,

Hey Dodo,

Please can you let me know numbers and names so I can add them to the current list?? I notice that you're not currently on the list and I'm trying to get a clear idea of numbers for the gig.

Cheers in advance.

Hi there, I'm happy to buddy with anyone.

BSAC DL, 150 dives, know my way around Stoney reasonably well. Crap air consumption but I'll be diving the twins so it won't matter.

I'll be coming up from East London, and am happy to give someone a lift up if needs be. I'll prolly do M11 then A14 so if you still need a lift Conor I might be able to give you a lift up (although it might be a one-way trip as I might be meeting the missus later on)

Laters,
   Janos

<font color='#0000FF'>Hi all,

I might need a buddy also if my regular buddy Phil does'nt come.  

PADI AOW with about 40+ dives and i do usually get lost in the murkey Stoney pea soup so anyone who can navigate for me will be a bonus.

Got all my own gear though.

<font color='#FF0000'>Bren,
I did write that I'd be there on the 21st ages ago so it probably is me at no.23. Hope that clears it up a little.

Let me know if it is still possible nearer the time
