Starting in August, I am going to schedule a meeting on the 1st Wednesday of every other month -- mark your calendars! For the remainder of 2013, we'll meet August 7, October 2 and December 4. :-) I welcome suggestions for where to have these meetings -- tell me your favorite neighborhood hangouts, and we'll chose places all around the area!
For August 7, I've chosen one of my favorite restaurants, and a spot that is fairly central to Raleigh. Neomonde is at 3817 Beryl Road, very close to where 440 crosses Hillsborough Street. It has been a Raleigh institution since 1977, and the food is excellent (here's a link to the menu: http://www.neomonde.com/cafe/menu/)! We'll start the meeting at 7, but I'll plan to get there a bit early to try and commandeer a group of tables for our group.
We want to meet all of the new folks who have joined Triangle Scuba Group, and hear from you about what kinds of things you would like to see the group planning! Do you like going to the quarry, the coast, or tropical destinations? Do you like wrecks, reefs, underwater photography, or spear fishing? We are a diverse group of divers, and we are lucky to live in a place where the dive season stretches well into the fall. We still have plenty of time to put a few quarry or coastal trips together before the end of the year!
The TSG organizers want to be a resource to the members of this group -- most of us have been diving for several years so we know people in the local shops, and we know charter operators at the coast. We are happy to share our experiences and provide our insight for just about any question you might have!
