Training Day March

The weather may have been dreich (until we were ready to leave)!! but the TD spirits were on good form today for our quarterly training day. Well done to everyone for coming along and Congratulations to a certain young man for completing his Dive Leader qualification and to Debbie Kiers for getting Ocean Diver 1 and 2 signed off and to all our other dive colleagues who came along to practice their skills and especially nice to see Mary back in the water. Thanks to Audrey and Linzi who helped keep everyone fed. Lastly thank you to our Instructors and to Ciaran who took photos and was our Assistant Dive Manager for the day. Donald couldn’t wait to photo bomb the picture! :-)) A good day was had by all. We did our good deed as a dive club by cleaning up the area around the lay-by as it was covered in litter (nothing to do with us). We ended our day in the Green Kettle with cake, coffee and hot chocolate…and lots of chat about our Easter trip to Plockton and Lochcarron.
