Well, here it is March already. As most of you know this is the last month of lobster season. We have a few dives on the calendar so that we will have the opportunity to stock our freezers to hold us to the end of July. The good fortune for the lobsters during the off season will be bad news for the Lion Fish. I personally plan to spear as many as I can in order to help keep their numbers down.

We also have a number of non- diving activities on the calendar. Be sure to check out the calendar below and sign up for some fun. We have a bike ride, kayaking and the usual dinners at large. We have the annual Pig Roast on April 6. Some non- club events coming up are the Dania Beach Nautical Flea Market (March 1 through March 4 ) and the Pompano Beach Sea Food Festival (April 26 through April 28).

Thanks to Donna Eades, we had a great time on the annual Tri-Rail Pub Crawl. I clearly remember the train ride to West Palm Beach but seem to have lost the ride back. I’m told I had a good time.

As you know, Barry Kulick did not do his usual presentation in February but he will entertain us in March. It’s always fun with Barry and it will be extra good this year because he had an extra month to prepare. I'm looking forward to it.

I would like to take this time to thank Ray Schreiber for his many years of hard work as the webmaster. He did a great job. We now have a new webmaster, Bonnie, and she has been working like a fiend setting up our new, modernized website. If you see either Ray or Bonnie, please let them know you appreciate their hard work. The new site is a work in progress but it already looks fantastic!

I hope to see you all at the March club meeting.


Live long and lobster.
