February Meetup-MICHEL LABRECQUE AND JULIE OUIMET!

Haymarket Pub & Brewery

As has been usual over the last few years, our February meetup happens the Monday after the Our World Underwater dive show. This gives us a chance to bring in some of the best presenters at that event to speak to our group! This year we were able to bring in the photojournalist and videography team of Michel Lebrecque and Julie Ouimet. Their talk will feature places rarely visited by divers. We will be meeting this month at the Haymarket Pub and Brewery. We get this room for free based on our collective tips to our server in our private area, so please get your food and drink in the private room, not in the main restaurant. DIVING OFF THE BEATEN PATH There still remain many areas of our blue planet that are not regularly visited by divers. Over the course of the last 3 years, we have explored some of these such places, hoping to become part of the few, and maybe the first, to discover what lies beneath places such as Clipperton, Oman and the Comoros. While our focus will be on sharing images and thoughts about Clipperton, we also want to offer a sneak peek of images captured in the Arabian Sea and Mozambique channel.
