NORTHEAST SCUBA IN CHELMSFORD
MIKE LENNON WILL BE THE GUEST SPEAKER
Mike Lennon is going present pictures from the trip that he and Jan took to Utila, which is one of the Bay Islands off the coast of mainland Honduras. One of the raffle prizes will be fish id card for Belize and Honduras.
Paul and Sarah will be the presenters at the April 3rd meeting. We are going to show you how easy it is to make an underwater video with an inexpensive camera and housing and then using techniques you can learn in the Underwater Video course, you will see how my "acceptable" underwater video of our dive at the "Swirling Tides of Death" site in St. Croix is enhanced with color correction, music, etc.

POTENTIAL SUMMER CLUB ACTIVITY: I mentioned the potential for a summer club activity with Dive Kulture. In case you are interested in hearing/seeing more about our dive adventure with them 2 summers ago, here is the link to the video that Paul created, showing our day out on the Cape Ann boat and at Stage Fort Park with the kids.
Please let me know at the meeting or via email if there are other presenters you would like to see, dives to plan, etc. We have a request to take the Dive Kulture kids out diving again on the Cape Ann boat, so I'll talk to you guys about that in a few months...thinking about August for that event. What else would you like to do as a club? Please let me know. I'll be working on speakers for March. I have a lead from Jim and would also like to have Paul show you guys pictures from our trip to the Galapagos. I still have the Penguin Lady and Jay Ganson in mind to talk about Antarctica, so stay tuned........
