<font color='#0000FF'>Righto!

Spoke to Andy last night on his way back from Marsille, Marsayeille, erm t'sarf o France (fortunately he was in Wales so it didn't cost an arm and...) and he's up for doing a YD gig.

Prices will depend on the option you pick and the numbers we get but for basic and Adv 'trox you are looking £110-£130 all in (books, gas and diving)

The options are

Basic Nitrox
Basic and Advanced Nitrox
Advanced and Deco

(Note - Adv. and deco is a FOUR DAY COURSE, you can do the Advanced portion on the gig but will have to arrange another time to finish the deco section. It's in your interests as you'll get more time and a better deal that way rather than 10 divers with twins and stages trying to get into Wast all at once!)

Times.

Back o' Feb (Daveking's crew permitting - TBC)
Back o' March (Andy has ONE free weekend - again TBC)
Back o' April (basically any April/May is free ATM.)

So, please place your names below with your option choice and date preferance and I'll call Andy tonight and finalise the info.

Drift

Basic and Adv - pref Feb, if not March

<font color='#000080'>Hi Drifty & Dave

Could I put my name down for a place on this course? The Advanced course would be ideal. What you doing about getting down there and accomodation Drifty? My quals are BSAC OD with 45 dives, mid way through the SD qualification. Please advise me if I'm suitable for this course?

Will check with Andy on the way home but think as long as you have circa 30 dives plus and aren't a total arse your okay.

I'll tell him you are interested and to pencil you in for this. I've not sorted accom at the mo - since I've done the classwork I'll possibly just drive down to the first site on Sat - but will probably crash in Sedburgh (dalesman et al).

I'll speak to Andy about t6he coursework for you Dave, you may well have to do the Friday as well. Possibly he'd do the classwork seperately and we could doulbe up on the trip?

<font color='#000080'>Dave, Further to my PM:

You said there will be approx 10 of us? Did you want to be cheeky and ask any hotels in the area for a group discount as thats 30 nights accomodation if we all book the same place for the weekend! They can do the math so's to speak!

<font color='#0000FF'>Yeah sorry, my fault for not being able to read a calander!

I'll be talking to Andy later today about accom. There's a few B&B's and I can ask about a group of 10

Andy's not decided where he is going to do the diving yet (as of 5pm last night) and I don't to be honest think he'll be too thrilled with the idea of Crap'n'rainy - not when it's a 20m mudhole and you can do Wast to erm.... lots

He does need a certain amount of depth for the course - ie to test if you'd go past your max depth etc if tempted, blob deployment, ox tox etc.

<font color='#000080'>Drifty and Dave

Keep us posted on where he's doing the course, if there is any change on whats already been said. We'll have to book somewhere to stay over that weekend. Let me know when your thinking of booking accomodation as I'll share a twin room to reduce costs if you like.

Waiting for Daveking (hint) to tell me what his crew have decided re lodgings. Andy is sending me a list of B&B's.

Oh, and looks like Digger has taken the 10th and final place.

Anyone getting a proper YD Gig List up for this thread? Just for clarity's sake and so potential punters can see the dates, prices, venues etc, for the course(s) and who's attending ?? Might help!

Good luck all who attend - you have nothing to lose but your masks!

<font color='#0000FF'>Sorry, the Feb bargeontoDaveKing's TDI trox course is now full.

I'll organise another later in the year (currently looking at April time as Andy is that busy) but so far the only interest is from

Billy the Kangeroo
nigel

Need more names! Basic and Advanced nitrox for £110 (if we get a big enough group)

PS Bren - this was a speculative to find out the interest level to arrange a course, not vice versa. Once I have enough expressing interest a date will be fixed - for now it's circa April. As for location, schooling at Andy's place in Sedburgh (J37 M6 I think?) and diving TBA, poss Wast et al.

Happy?

So that's you in trouble Drifty, keep doing those flow checks mate


BTW Drift on a seperate issue, a mate of mine has a Diverite Classic and backplate for sale, as new, dunno prices yet but if you're interested then pm me and I'll make enquiries or put you straight in touch.

http://www.hoseasons.co.uk/viewmax....rt_here

EDIT:
Sorry forgot to say here is the place.Its the second one called Laythams Farm house.

http://www.hoseasons.co.uk/holiday....l?E3309

You have to phone up to get the price but if there were 10 of us I have a camp bed and we could split the cost 10 ways. Only negative is we have to book for three nights only.

Will look for others now.
