The Presidents' Corner

May 2019

by Matt Rownin

Wow, it’s time to write another volume of the President’s Corner. The time seems to just fly by but what becomes more difficult is thinking of something to write about, that you all want to read. Not an easy task….as I sit here drawing a complete blank.

Spring weather seems to be a little slow in starting up and we have had one local trip to Fort Wetherill scrubbed due to some high winds and rain, we will keep trying to get the local dive season kicked off. I was able to travel in April and do some blue water diving in St. Thomas for one trip of two dives, it was my first time there and realty enjoyed it and will get back there again. Next time I will plan to stay on the island and experience it some more, this time we were on a cruise and only had the day there.

The FCDA does have some dive trips planned for the summer – the July Cape Ann trip is just around the corner. We are heading up there on July 10 and diving Thursday afternoon and Friday morning with Charter Boat 1 and camping at the Cape Ann Camp ground as usual. If you want to come up let me know, we may have a spot open on the boat.

We are also trying to get some dives on Bill Palmers boat, The Thunderfish, dates to be scheduled so stay tuned. Look for more Fort Wetherill dates as well.

Now for the business end. We have been in need of a secretary for quite some time and desperately need one. In addition to that we will also need to fill the Treasurer and Web Master spot for next year. So please, with no joking, we will need to have some new people step up so our beloved club can carry on for years to come. If you have any interest in these or one of the other officer positions let Lisa, Mike or myself know and we can accommodate what you would be interested in.

Memorial Day is early this year so our meeting WILL be on the last Friday, May 31 at its usual time with a pre-meeting BBQ staring at 7pm. See you all soon. Safe Diving…….
