President's Message

Hello fellow Barracudas. It looks like the Red Tide is clearing up over in the Venice Florida area. Soon all the dead fish should be gone and that area can start its recovery. Soon it will be good for looking for shark teethagain.

Speaking of shark teeth, I went to see the new movie “THE MEG.” It is a good syfy/monster movie. I do not think that it will create fear in people about sharks, like the movie JAWS did. I hate

movies that produce fear of sharks and all sea creatures.

I worked the Labor Day Sale at ADI and it is so much fun to talk to all the people who love diving and help them find thing they cannot live without!

Let’s get wet!

Dive safe, Dive often!

As ever, if you would like to run for one of these offices, or know someone who would, please

Bill Little

make your preference known to any of the E-Board members. We'll be more than glad to bring up the names of any candidates who wish to step forward.

Also, if you would like to serve as chair of any of the club committees, please let us know. It's your chance to work with a group of good folks, learn a little about how the club operates from the inside, and get out of the house once a month! What more could you ask?
