    Polly and I may be setting up a dive club in North Wales. All none for profit but an good reason to hire a pool, practise and get in some North Walian water. No particular training affiliation required.

    We've been racking our brains for a club name and thought we'd open it to you all. Basically it's got to be something catchy, implies North Wales based (although we'll dive anywhere) and fun.

    I thought club affiliation on UKD etc was against the new forum T&C's. Surely it's against the grain to outlaw the likes of the Idjits the come on here with this sort of suggestion?

    There is nothing in the T&C's that say anything about club affiliations.....

    Has to be said in a Welsh accent:

    Dai-vin, gettit?? = 'Dive in'

    (from the Welsh name Dai)

    Any bans are on an individual basis not on a group basis.

    Just say that again Amanda!

    Welsh 'Dai' is more of a 'Die' pronunciation which isn't great for a dive club :(

    I liked the idea of Sea Dragons too but I have a feeling there may already be a club with that name.
    I'm sure we came up with some cool names actually...but we were down at the pub at the time and now I can't remember any of them :(

    Ooh, like that one. Also like Iechyd Dive but you've got to be welsh to understand it and much as I've been saying Iechyd da for nearly 2 years now, I only realised how to spell it a few weeks ago so guess we might miss out on the old Google searches.
