Well, the pig roast was a big success as usual. Did you notice our new pig roaster? Its a beauty! If you missed it you missed a fun evening with great food and great people. Thanks to Joe Smariga and Ray Papa, the pig and everyone else who helped with the set up and break down. Thanks also to everyone who brought the delicious sides, appetizers and desserts. Everything was terrific. It was good to see a lot of our members bringing guests. I think that had a lot to do with making the party a success. Please always feel free to bring guests to our club sponsored parties.

With summer nearly upon us, please be sure to check your equipment and bring it to your favorite dive shop and have it serviced if necessary. An equipment failure on the boat is one thing, at depth it’s a whole different ball of wax. Don’t take a chance on your safety or that of your dive buddy.

We have lots of activities on the calendar. Please check out the calendar and join us for some fun. Remember that signing up for an event does not guarantee you a spot. The event must be paid for and the first people to pay are the ones that will be sure to have a spot if the number of people to sign up exceeds the limit. Don’t get shut out! PAY, PAY, PAY!

By now, the vast majority of us have renewed our membership. If you haven’t, I urge you to do so as soon as possible. Remember, you must be a member in good standing to take part in most of the club’s activities.

I look forward to seeing a lot of you on dives and other activities this spring and summer. It’s going to be a great year.

Live long and lobster.
