    Greetings SeaBase Crew - Just to clarify, since several people have now asked, each diver is responsible for getting his gear (including air cylinders) to Dutch Springs. All rental gear, including air cylinders, will be distributed at the academic review next Thursday (7/11). We’ll discuss the camping arrangements most likely after the pool on Monday.

    For the pool review session on Monday – Phil will bring the loaner/rental equipment (including air cylinders) as he did for the classes. All you need to bring (if you’re not renting gear from him) are your mask/fins/snorkel. As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or Phil/Steve at the dive shop. YiS, Michael Sharples

    There has been a change in time – the Lodi Boys/Girls club is requiring we finish earlier than originally planned so all crew members and students must meet at the pool at 4:00 pm. This class is MANDATORY for all Scout crewmembers. Please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/scuba-nj/events/125786062/. For the certified Scouts (Justin, Greg and Michael), the refresher cost will be $25 (slightly more if you need to use their gear) plus you’ll need to complete and bring, the SDI Liability Waiver and SDI Medical Waiver found at http://www.1877scubausa.com/forms.htm, with you to the pool.

    For anyone needing rental gear for Dutch Springs (even certified divers) – you MUST stop by the dive shop by July 3rd to get your rental gear for the certification weekend. Phil will be away, and If you don’t make arrangements to get your gear by July 3rd (air tanks will be available for pickup on July 11th) we can’t guarantee there will be rental gear available for Dutch Springs.
