There has been some interested expressed in the area for an ice diver training course. We have done some preliminary work on it and have set Saturday, February 23 as the date for a pool session where we will have everyone in dry suits getting accustomed to swimming with a tether and dealing with entanglement. On Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2 we will do the open water dives at Atton’s Lake — two certification dives on Saturday and another on Sunday with an optional fourth fun dive on that day. We are working out the logistics, including course fee, and will let interested divers know as soon as possible.
Sheldon Funk from Saskatoon will be the primary instructor.
If you are interested, are a certified Advanced Open Water Diver and at least 18 years of age, here is an experience well worth undertaking. It will truly push your envelope. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested, so that we can make plans.
Thanks so much.
