We'll be discussing club affairs, next dives and happy hours and listen to our featured speaker of the month. Jacques, our speaker for tonight, is on his way to Lake Charles, LA to provide video coverage of the events connected to the impending arrival of Hurricane Barry that is projected to come ashore in that area by Saturday. Jacques is under contract with the National Weather Service for situations such as this and he contacted me as soon as he found out. We will be rescheduling him.
Wait we have another great speaker!
