HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Marco on passing his PADI Instructor Exams yesterday in “challenging” conditions at Stoney Cove, what a fantastic achievement & so well deserved. Great to catch up & have a laugh with so many great PADI Pros from all over the country too, it just shows how brilliant the dive community is.
THANK YOU to Rachel, Rich, Chris & Tony from PADI we look forward to seeing you in 2024 (well one of you next week ).
APOLOGIES for closing the pool yesterday, unloading and loading kit over ice and snow just isn’t safe, thank you everyone for being so understanding.
OH and there is some professional photo bombing going on here!! I wonder if anyone can name the seasoned PADI Pro
Have a great week everyone, stay safe & warm, Hotch & Vic
NOBODY has any fun scuba diving!! 🙂 Yea right my cheeks still hurt from laughing so much!!!
RIGHT well as you can see the students from LSST Priory Academy are definitely enjoying Scuba Club & we welcome Hugh, Archer & Lewis enjoying a PADI Discover Scuba Dive, see you all next time.
AND then we go to our normal Saturday pool & say a huge welcome to 20 scouts from the 25th Ranskill Scout Group. That was an enormous amount of scouts with huge smiles on their faces after a PADI Discover Scuba Dive & Snorkelling experience. Great to see Reid enjoying a guided swim around in the mix too.
HAPPENING THIS WEEK also I’m very chuffed to welcome Steve, Phil & Emily to their PADI Instructor Development Course. Continuing the Pro journey from DM to Instructor is a very special time, watch this space for updates 🙂
WELL DONE Marco getting in some practice over at 8 Acre on Thursday with our Gaz ahead of next weeks Instructor Exams at Stoney.
