Monthly Dive Club Meeting and Pot Luck Dinner

Meetup with friends, new and old alike, at our monthly club meeting. Our guest speaker, Kim Johns, is the owner of Under Sea Industrial Apparel, USIA Dry Suits.

We start with a pot luck dinner at 6:30 PM. At 7 we’ll continue with self-introductions followed by a quick review of our Meetup dives at the Fish Ladder in Florence (coming up 9 March 2013).

Next our guest speaker, Kim Johns, will share the history of USIA, diving in the Pacific Northwest and give us a preview of products on the drawing board at USIA headquarters in St. Helens, Oregon.

If you have been shopping for a new dry suit, be sure to attend this meeting. Kim has promised a special offer to those who attend.

    We learned about several new products and product enhancements coming in the immediate and just-over-the-horizon future from USIA, Under Sea Industrial Apparel. Kim Johns, founder and president, shared USIA history and vision with us. Kim showed us the new TechniFit drysuit, Antares dry glove system, discussed dives he does with the US Park Service (monitoring the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor) and teased us with news of warmer thermal undersuits for diving. Stay tuned for more news.

    HydroSports announced a 2014 Bonaire dive trip, details to be posted 3-14, and asked for a show of interest in a dive trip this October to Vancouver Island. Many members expressed a desire to dive both Bonaire and Vancouver Island. Details for the Vancouver trip will be posted early next week. Two new members attended tonight's meeting. One non-member attended and departed after the meeting assuring us he would join promptly. Next meeting April 10. Speaker: film maker Bud Laurent.
