    Congratulations to Suggsy on achieving a Tech pass at GUE Fundamentals this weekend. It was well earned mate, and a deserved result. I dunno about you, but I'm knackered :)

    He was insufferable before, now what're we going to be subjected to? ;)

    By the way, well done.

    It was surprisingly difficult and not the walk over as I was told to expect, lots learnt, lots to practice and still to perfect and with the team we had for the course, it was certainly a laugh at times. Cheers Gareth.

    Thanks you two, I can't quite bring myself to become a full on fundiementalist but I shall try to be a bit more disparaging so as not to disappoint, however I'm like that anyway so you can't lay that on the door of a training agency. :bat:

    Oh and if anyone is unsure about whether to do GUE Fundamentals then do it, whatever the level of diving you are at and are open minded (yeah, weird eh) then I can guarantee you will come out the other side an all round better, safer diver. If you're not interested then that's cool, or, whatever!
    Next stop, Cave 1 (once the quote for my slightly used kidney arrives) :giggle:

    I would rate Gareth very highly as an instructor, everything was explained very well, all questions answered and ALL myths regarding GUE rebuffed. Also, feedback on performance was accurate without being insulting. Oh, and he's a good laugh to boot, what more could you want?

    Nice one Paul - I'm not at all surprised you got a lot out of the course and whilst I haven't had the "pleasure" of a course with Gareth I'm equally not surprised he's turned out to be a great instructor. Congrats to all of you :)

    AG: you don't need to do fundies mate, you wouldn't be half as speshul if you did and we love you as you are :D

    I think we'd probably not just break Gareth but completely f**k up the whole system :)

    It would be a long four days. :)

    Well done Paul know how long you've been waiting for the probe.

    Don't go speculating FFS, you'll get your post deleted and the thread locked but other off topic posts are ok, but won't make any sense by them being left in.
