Farnes 2018   - We have decided to cancel this trip as its getting a bit late in the year.

Wastwater Trip – The hostel now closes from Oct to April, and you can only go if you book the whole hostel, so we will try again next year.

Diving 2019 - We will need to try and book something for 2019, so start thinking about what you want to do

Red Sea 2018 - Graham and co went to the Red Sea in Aug 18, doing the Northern wrecks and reefs with Blue O2. They had a brilliant time, with Graham’s and Haydn’s wives loving their first time in the Red Sea. They had a great close encounter with dolphins on the bin bag barge. They were also battered by frightened fish from a bait ball near the Yolanda wreck. The footage and photos are on Facebook or Whatsapp – ask Graham for the link, they are great . Same time next year anybody?

Underwater Hockey - Davy Diver has started an underwater hockey session at Skipton. If anybody is interested then please go to the MISC section on the Forum, for more details or contact Davydiver with a message.  Why not give it a try?

Looking forward to 2018/19:

Farnes 2018 We were thinking of a non diving weekend up in Northumberland, probably away from Seahouses, where we will get some cheaper accommodation. Thinking about maybe Amble or Alnwick. Probable itinerary –have a lie in and an un-rushed breakfast, bit of walking could be to a pub, lunch, walk back, maybe a cat nap and then out for food in the evening. Got lots of good food places both in Alnwick and in Amble. Given that we don’t have to get up early we could even just go up and meet on the Saturday morning and stay 1 night instead of 2?

Red Sea 2018 - Graham and chums went to the Red Sea in Aug 18, doing the Northern wrecks and reefs with Blue O2. Hopefully we will hear about it and see pics at the September meeting.

Wastwater Trip – Graham is looking a trip to Wastwater in November 2/3/4th or 16/17/18th, looking at staying at the Youth Hostel and maybe doing some diving, definitely some walking and trips to the pub. If you are interested, then please contact Graham or see him at the meeting.

Underwater Hockey - Davy Diver has started an underwater hockey session at Skipton. If anybody is interested then please go to the MISC section on the Forum, for more details or contact Davydiver with a message.  Why not give it a try?

Film Festival - I saw this film festival at Leeds Town Hall on Wed 24th October 2018 if anybody is interested?
https://www.leedstownhall.co.uk/whats-on/film/ocean-film-festival-world-tour-2018/2832  for details, ticket prices and booking on line or http://www.oceanfilmfestival.co.uk/home for details of the films they are showing. It looks great.

Christmas Do - We will need to look at going out for a Christmas Do – Stephano’s again? Or do we want to try somewhere else? We will have to decide at the Sept meeting, so if you can get your diaries out, maybe looking at Sat 1st Dec.

Next meeting THURSDAY 6th SEPT at the Kings.

Misc. / Re: Underwater hockey is coming to Skipton
« Last post by davydiver on August 31, 2018, 10:16:37 AM »
We are starting underwater again after the summer break, Fridays 7-8 at Skipton swimming pool, come have a go the first session is free!

Its a great way of getting / keeping fit for scuba diving and I believe improves gas consumption.

We are not crazy competitive, its about having fun, improving fitness and enjoying the game.

Have a look at our facebook page, search Skipton underwater hockey, email me dcolley@gmx.co.uk or shoot me a message here.
