What’s new at SISAC October 2018
A brief roundup of club activities during October 2018 and what is coming up.
New Ocean Divers
Congratulations to you both.
We have a five students close to completing their theory and sheltered water sessions ready for open water in the coming weeks. As we are moving to cooler weather we will be including the Dry Suit SDC (Skill Developement Course) with the Ocean Diver course.
During the remaing of this year, we are in October so time is short, we are planning to attract more new Ocean Divers plus also work with our new Ocean Divers towards Sports Diver.
Blue Duck Photography – 18th November 2018
Don’t miss out on this informative evening.
Taking photographs underwater is seen by many to be a daunting subject. Potentially expensive and difficult to understand. It’s no wonder that people are often put off before they’ve even given it a chance, believing that the route to good underwater photography means that they need to spend a fortune and possess ninja like underwater imaging expertise.
We at SISAC invite you to a presentation by Blue Duck Photography at the One Leisure in St Ives (Find us Here).
The event will be held on Sunday 18th November at 19:00hrs to 21:00*
(7pm – 9pm to you and me)
Members and non-Members welcome
AGM – 11th November 2018
To be held at the One Leisure in the Green Room at 19:00 on the 11th November 2018.
Full members are entitled to voting rights at the meeting.
It is time to renew your BSAC membership, if you do not do this directly, and also your SISAC Membership. All membership fees are now processed via BSAC and not the Club Treasurer.The process is simple and straight forward however there may be an anomaly with SISAC fees. If this is the case please forward your confirmation of BSAC membership with a note stating you are from SISAC 0833 to Sandra Crowley at email@example.com
Dive Trips 2019
Organising trips is a thankless task. Firstly trying to find a location where members wish to go, raising enthusiasm, collecting deposits only to end up with an under subscribed activity. This leads to the club making up shortfalls or trips being cancelled. This lowers enthusiasm and perpetuates the problem.
It is a well trodden path however I am going to walk it again. “YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!”. Tell the committee where you want to go in 2019 Only feedback to the committee can improve 2019, Be prepared to take a prominent role in organising it.

Involve them in your training, they enjoy it, that’s why they became Instructors.
