The Battlefords Scuba Community has established the schedule for the Ice Diver course. It will go Friday, March 20th through Sunday, March 22nd, 2020, starting Friday evening at the pool (a classroom session and a pool orientation to proper weighting and to swimming with the lines and communications). The lake dives will happen the following two days starting at 9 am each day. The instructor will be Sheldon Funk of Saskatoon, a true aficionado of the sport!
If you are looking for something a little off the beaten path, this course certainly fits that bill. If you are thinking about it, you want to be comfortable with the idea of a closed space, and cold water. It is a unique experience and it captures many who come to try it.
Dry suits are recommended but not mandatory.
The course fee is $200.
There is room for certified ice divers to join in the fun, and the fee for that is $50.
If you are interested, or want more information, please contact Dennis McCullough at 306-937-7195 prior to March 15th.
Thanks, and hope some of you will join us, even as spectators!
President Battlefords Scuba Community
