    Education Moment

    5 skills every diver should practice:

1.     Remove, replace and clear your mask
2.     Become neutrally buoyant and hover
3.     In shallow water to deep to stand in and with a deflated BCD, release and drop enough weights to become positively buoyant
4.     Use an alternate air source to ascend to the surface and establish a positive buoyancy 
5.     Practice any other skill the instructor feels/you feel nee improvement

PADI suggests that divers who did not dive in the last six months should take a refresher course.

Tonight’s Program 

Carla Chatterton, (Servicemembers Undertaking Disabled Sports) SUDS 

SUDS -small non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to improve the lives of injured service members coming back from IRAQ and Afghanistan through SCUBA.   SUDS is funded 100% through charitable donations (all private).  The program draws wounded veterans from three veteran hospitals:  Walter Reed, San Antonio and San Diego.   While the acronym remains the same, SUDS, they have recently changed their name:  Servicemembers Undertaking Disabled Sports to represent the multi-sport approach they have embraced.
