Barracuda Bulletin masthead
President's Message

Happy New Year! May 2018 be a great year for diving and other adventures. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage each of us to think of, and possibly lead new dive adventures. Please invite all your diver friends and acquaintances who dive to our next general meeting on January 18. We meet every third Thursday of every month at the Merrit Island Public Library 1195 N. Courtenay Parkway on Merritt Island.

We also have Barracuda Island that we have adopted for cleanup. Once a quarter we meet at the Manatee Cove Park on North Tropical Trail and kayak out to the island and pick up trash and paddle back. It's a great deal of fun. Please join us! We'll post the dates for the clean ups in the bulletin as we schedule them.
