Our next meeting is coming soon, January 14th at Wally’s Spot at 1979 Main St, Green Bay. We may try something new and attempt setting up an online portal to the meeting. If we do this will be our first attempt. Directions for connection will be on the Neptune’s Facebook page if it occurs.
I was recently contacted by the owner of the equipment from the old On the Rocks Scuba, from Gills Rock. There is a large amount of “vintage equipment” she wishes to liquidate. Most of it from the late 70’s early 80’s. I have tentatively agreed to assist her with selling what we can. John Touscany and I were able to view a limited amount of the old inventory. It consists of masks, fins, snorkels, boots, gloves, and hoods, some of it new in the box, still in the plastic. There is a large quantity of solid, belt style lead weights. I was able to locate 26 tanks. 11 Aluminum 80’s, of the “bad” alloy, that are good for scrap or repurposing. There are about 15 Steel tanks of unknown condition.
Upcoming Club banquet planning:
The Banquet is planned for February 22nd at Wally’s Spot. Brian was able to convince John Janzen to be our presenter. Thank you Brian and John!!
Should we use the banquet as an outlet for some of the On the Rocks Scuba inventory?
Will we be offering prizes and/or raffles?
Other ideas for creating a draw to the banquet?
Creating publicity to bring in new Members
Melissa Saunders and I are committing to put in an appearance at as many open water classroom sessions in the upcoming year as we can to promote the club, by presenting briefly who we are as a club and what value we provide to local diving. Ideas and additional support would be helpful.
