John H and myself are off to get wet on sunday. Thinking lakes or Caps.

Anyone else up for getting wet let us know. If anyone has a more interesting dive plan give us a shout.

I might come down - I fear tho' my wife has other plans for me. Visiting friends with a baby !!!!

Cue:

"Oh hasn't he grown", "He's very quiet considering"

Whilst Gavin looks out of the windae. Bah Humbug.

Probably best at caps. Andy H is at Wast Water so getting fills at conniston is a ball ache unless you have a load of tanks.

Allister your more than welcome along. Even if their is three of us its not a problem.

Alister.

Will call you on sat to confirm final details. I think the plan is to meet at caps on sunday about 9am. Descent diving day three or four dives, preferably late one in the dark if poss. Rough plan to do a load of skill drills whilst diving about. Dsmb deployments, deco stop practice, out of air drills, horizontal ascent practice, and anuthing else we can think off. Makes the day a bit more interesting as know caps better than my bath now!!

You guys be safe now and remember, what ever you're planning on doing under water you discuss in detail (with hand signals) amongst each other whilst on the surface and as you're just about ready to get kitted up!! Stand in a circle facing each other and listen-in, and the more senior divers amongst you (i.e. a mixture of the most dives in the most conditions and the highest qualified) lead the pack in discussing the dive and displying the hand signals, e.g. agree who's gonna (which pair of you) set the line off the reel if you intend to do 'swimming with out mask and following a reel line by feel' procedures. Do NOT leave it to get organised underwater. Folk will get confused and hence task-loaded if they're watching you give frantic hand-signals underwater and not having a Scooby what you're on about.

Dive safe all and see ya soon.

Ian, I did my TDI Basic Nitrox with Andy which was £45. Its a great course, 4 dives and qualifies up to ean40. I thought it was a great course. Am thinking of doing the adv nitrox as a result which i think is about £120 ish. You will need to check prices with Andy. Not sure when he is running them but I think there might be an adv in Jan. If theres a few of us up for it Im sure we can always book one with him.

Im also doing my SDI Deep Diver Course with Andy on the 23 24th dec. It qualifies you down to 45m. Im doing it as part of my SDI Avanced Development. The course is about £80 should u be interested.

Best thing to do if interested in any is give Andy a call, hes reallly helpfull.
