I have great news. The Illinois Council of Skin and Scuba Divers has named the Chicago Scuba Meetup Group the 2012 Dive Club of the Year! I am very proud of this. The reason we won this honor is because of the enthusiasm and activities of our members. We have become a meeting place and forum for new and veteran divers alike sharing our experiences and knowledge.

There is, of course, plenty of room for growth and improvement. Please feel free to bring us your ideas and suggestions. This club is run by its members and nothing gets done without you.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that November is our Show and Tell Night. Bring your photographs, videos, interesting stories, or just information that you would like to share. Try and let me know in advance what you will be bringing and what you will need to help you with your presentation.
Once again, thanks to all of you!
