Well its 2020 and time to think about getting wet.
Firstly have you got your Diver Alert Network (DAN) Insurance updated as you need it. A young fella had to be medivac'd to POM from Lae after a suspected case of the bends, all OK but just goes to show that we need to be prepared.
Looks as if our last set of repairs wasn't good enough in Salamaua as the Kennedy week buoy has gone walkabout again, lucky a local Salamaua fisherman found it and towed it back. Last weekend saw the DOL team installing a new stainless steel chain and with support of the boys on Salamaua the buoy is now firmly back in place.
The DOL dive calendar draft is now posted online so feedback is appreciated. We've added in a few social events and look forward to participation from more members so as to get these events up and running. Drop us a mail if you want to pre-book for the DOL dives so that Jo can book you in.
A few new dives site are on the calendar and w ew ill look to keep expanding. Also seems we might have more members with access to boats so we can look to take more than six on some DOL trips.
We are pretty excited about the next 12 months so look forward to seeing you all out on the water.
