Summer is well and truly here and the dive boats are almost spending more time in the water than in the shed!

It has been an interesting winter for divers. We have been met with some of the most undesirable weather for diving for a few years. But winter has had its moments of shining awesomeness!
We have successfully run 2 trips to Deep Creek – 1 for diving and 1 for hiking. Yes Seductive our larger boat made the trip into the park on some interesting slippery roads. The rewards were worth it though with those brave enough to motor over to Kangaroo Island for some world class diving by day and camp fire at night.
Managed to slip in a dive to the Ex HMAS Hobart. The weather was on our side with favorable tides for some mid winter excitement. This was a fun trip with some of the clubs divers camping overnight at Wirrina Caravan Park while others made it a action packed day trip.
We ran a movie night the other week in the Flinders University’s new hub. We watched some diving moves in the multimedia lounge with a 80″ plasma system.
During the somewhat quieter than normal winter time the committee have also been busy servicing gear, buying new tanks and getting the boats ready for summer. So please come down to the club and see whats cooking. Remember if you want gear please head down on Thursday evening. In having said that if your busy on Thursday we can work something out. A reminder for new and existing members too – all our memberships are now done right here on our website 🙂
We have been busy working behind the scenes to make our membership signups more efficient and reduce some of the admin work with processing memberships. FUUC now offer club memberships through our online system which will happily accept your VISA debit or credit card along with MasterCard. Its a better way to signup and renew all from the comfort of your smart phone,tablet or computer. Yes, the sign up system is mobile optimized too!!
The Hobart weekend has come to a close with everyone returning to Adelaide to begin unpacking and getting ready for Monday. We had 20 divers over the weekend with both boats full to capacity. Everyone enjoyed the Hobart and the added bonus of motoring past the rugged cliff faces and seals on the way back to port. The day did not end after the diving – many divers showed of their fancy camp cooking and there was many nibbles to share under a canopy of stars. All and all a fun weekend with a special thanks going out to the trip organizers.
