Diving New Year Resolutions!
Diving New Year Resolutions! New Dive Shop Opening Times

This time of year traditional is a very quiet time of UK divers, but constructive use of this time can get your diving year off to a flying start. It is an excellent time to check through all your equipment and ensure that it is all in proper working order well in advance of the start of the new UK diving season. So make arrangements for getting the items of your kit that need annual maintenance, like your regulators, serviced by a qualified service professional (ask in the diveshop for full details), to ensure that they are fully services and you have had the opportunity to test during one of own club swimming pool sessions. This time of year is also ideal for extending your diver education, by taking a specialty course or two. This month’s specialty of the month, the PADI EANx (Nitrox) Specialty course, is a great example of this and is a course that will enhance your diving for many years to come, as it will qualify you to dive using EANx, which will give you reduced Nitrogen absorption, during dives and could allow you to extend your bottom times. Even if your own equipment is away being services, you can still take advantage of this valuable course, because all diver training by Dream Divers includes free hire of all the necessary equipment needed to successfully complete the course.

Christmas Party
As you know we don’t have a club meeting during December, due the Christmas and New Year festivities, so we have our club Christmas party, during the month, each year we try and do something different. This year we went and spent an enjoyable evening watching “the Dogs” at Owlerton Stadium, in Sheffield. Everyone who turned up thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We would like to wish all club members a happy and prosperous new year.

Swimming Pool Sessions
At Chapeltown Swimming Pool
As Dive Club members, you can use the pool for only £5 per person, during our pool sessions, using your own kit, or just £15 per person including rental of full kit.
