Well Winter didn't seem to happen at all this year. The conditions
have been great and the Sunday morning shore dives have been as
busy as ever (of course, Callum's amazing bbq skills may have something
to do with that). Don't worry folks, only joking, Cal has been banned
from cremating the snags! The Wednesday Night Nutters (Rob, Greg
and Myles) are still going strong, in fact the core group is growing.
The International Whaling Commission are considering a "Save
the Prawn" campaign in light of the fact that the boys caught
four last week.

Ranger Trip - Angie led the Dolphin Scuba club divers trip to
the wreck of the Saxon Ranger (off the coast of Rockingham) on 31st
July. Sea conditions were great with clear sunny skies. The group
did two dives, the first on the Saxon Ranger where viz was a little
disappointing but the second dive on the D9 wreck more than made
up for it.
