    Hi all

    After the cancellation of the day on Saturday I've had a bunch of people contact me to see if I'd be willing to run another in January rather than wait, so I'm going to go to Dosthill on Saturday the 15th and invite anyone interested in GUE or DIR Diving to join me. The plan will be

    Surface Session 1
    GUE Introduction Talk
    Buoyancy, Trim and positioning Talk
    Dive 1 Brief

    Dive 1 - Basic Skills demonstrations
    Buoyancy and Trim Demonstration - GUE Instructor & GUE Fundamentals Diver
    Frog and Back Kick Demonstration - GUE Instructor & GUE Fundamentals Diver
    Practice and video
    Basic 5 skills demonstration - GUE instructor Intern
    Ascent with stops.

    Surface Session 2
    Debrief
    Kit configuration Talk
    Team Diving Talk

    Dive 2
    SMB Deployment Demonstration by GUE Fundamentals Diver
    Valve Drill Demonstration by GUE Tech 1 Diver
    S Drill Demonstration by GUE Tech2 Diver
    Ascent with stops Practice and Video

    Surface Session 3
    Video Debrief
    Q&A

    The dives will be videod. As this is not a GUE course, I will be making the video available. However, I will edit the video over Xmas and you will receive the bits where you are the only diver in the frame. The demonstrations are being done by GUE divers at all levels to show that we teach the same standards and skillset from the start.

    There will also be equipment around for people to try out if they are interested. If you plan on coming, please let me know by adding your name to the thread, so I can plan appropriately

    cheers!

    Only acceptable if you promise that there is a chance that "mild" could be escalated to "extreme verbal and physical"
