We are well into the summer diving season here on Oahu, and the ocean has not disappointed. While the Club dive at Sharks Cove in July didn’t give us the greatest conditions, the food and fellowship more than made up for it.
Additionally, we had a great turnout for the Club workday in May. We were able to get a lot of long- planned projects done. If you haven’t been in since the workday, we were able to get the equipment room re-arranged to provide more room and a more efficient process for our Equipment Manager, Rick.
We also were able to prep the equipment room ceiling for NAVFAC to come in and start working on coating and preserving the metal. Huge mahalo to all that came out and helped better the Club. The big news for Sea Lancers Diving Club is the arrival of 75 new steel tanks from Faber. For those of you who are recipients of these tanks, THANK YOU for your patience. After months of waiting they are here and waiting for you to pick them up and put them in the water.
We also established a relationship with the head of Recreational Therapy at the VA here in Hawaii, and the founder of Life Waters – an organization that facilitates scuba therapy for disabled Vets. We are working toward training and certifying Club members as buddies, helpers and instructors for working with disabled Vets wanting to dive in Hawaii. This is a really cool opportunity for the VA, Life Waters, and Sea Lancers Diving Club. Please let me know if you are interested in getting involved.
Finally, the 10th annual Dive for Life is happening August 27th. We will be partnering with ‘Grey Matters’ to help raise money to fight cancer under the team name Grey Matters/Sea Lancers. Head over to www.oahudive4life.com for more info, and check out the post on our forum www.sealancers.org/forum
