So here we are in December already, wet and windy weather to go with it; how envious some of us are of those about to set off to sunnier climes where warm clear water awaits them ! Have a great time, those of you jetting off to the Red Sea; hopefully youíll have some stories and lots of photos to share on your return.
Update ... what has happened in the club since the last newsletter
Meal at Gurkha Restaurant
The first of (hopefully) many monthly meals, proving that we do like dining as much as diving, took place on 1st November at the Gurkha Restaurant in Sandford. We were delighted with the turn out; over 20 members turned up to sample the oriental buffet and much curry, noodles (not to mention the Gurkha beer) was enjoyed by all ! Thanks to everyone who supported this.
Does anyone have any old postcards featuring shipwrecks off Portland ? A friend of Chrisís is looking to buy some.
The full face mask kit made its first appearance at the pool last week and several members had an chance to try it out. Please donít forget the pool sessions; it may not be every membersí idea of a Saturday night out but its a great opportunity to have nice quiet swim as well as a natter between lengths at the shallow end.
Come and try it
Unfortunately numbers for the planned try-dive on 2nd December werenít viable. Nick will be running two further Come and Try It nights in the new year, so please keep any eye/ear out for anyone who may be considering starting diving. Further details of dates to follow.
New Years Day Dive
Nick is planning another dive off the pier on New Yearís Day; if you are feeling mad, brave, or just in need of a sobering dip after all the festivities, come along ! Meet up about midday, further details will be sent out nearer the time.
Up and Coming ... details of forthcoming events
Our Christmas party is on Friday 8th December at the Lookout Cafe, Durlston, at 7.30 pm. Weíve had a really good response and it looks like being a great evening. The Cafe has both beer and wine available (house wine approx £10 per bottle), though Sally has kindly agreed that members can bring their own wine with no corkage fee, so please feel free to do so if youíd like to.
Monthly Meal - January
So with our party serving as Decemberís monthly nosh up, onto January. Hopefully you wonít have started the New Year diets and youíll be able to come along for an Italian at Piccolo Mondo in Wimborne on Wednesday 10th January. Iíve had good reports about their pizzas !
