Outstanding Instructor Award

   I was recently honored with this Outstanding Instructor Award from SDI.  According to Brian Carney, of SDI, only 20 of these were given out in the USA.  The award is based on a number of things, including feedback from our students.  So, thanks to those of you who offered positive feedback and we will really try to live up to those expectations.

   We had a fantastic trip to Bonne Terre last month.  Our first-timers all had a great time and I was able to do some dives and see some things I hadn't seen before.  Except for the trip home in a blizzard, it was a great weekend.

   Our local diving season is upon us.  We started Open Water Dives last weekend with a respectable 10-12 foot visibility.  In spite of some cool conditions, everyone enjoyed the dives and UNK students received their certifications.  We're diving at Sandy Channel the next two weekends as well--come on out and join us.  Get the diving season off to a good, early start.

   Speaking of the diving season, we are doing the "Dive Around Nebraska" again this year.  Sign up for it--you've nothing to lose.  Here's all the details:

Blue Hole  
May 31-June 2, 2013 
  Blue Hole
   Our annual Blue Hole May trip is coming up soon.  It's a great place to do some specialty courses, like Deep Diver, or just a place to dive for fun and experience.

Bull Shoals Lake 
June 21-23, 2013 
  Bull Shoals Lake
   We'll be diving Bull Shoals Lake again in June.  We have a fun time there, diving the walls and forests in the Ozark Mountains.  It's a fantastic place to do the Deep Diver class because we can easily reach 130-ft depths--the limit for sport diving. 

   Don't wait too long to sign up because this trip usually fills and we have a finite number we can take because the boat we rent only holds a certain number of divers.

Amphos Dive Computer
Newest offering from Sherwood
 Here's a flyer with all the details on the new Sherwood Amphos Computer.  It's wrist-watch size, but still has a large, easy-to-read display.  Retail price is $470, the same as an Insight wrist mount. 

   One big advantage for this computer is that you can wear it every day as a watch, and get a lot more use out of it instead of only using it occasionally when you go diving.

   So, if you're in the market for a computer, stop in and take a look--you'll like what you see.
