See below for information Geoff put together regarding the comp planned for this coming weekend.
It's with great excitement that I would like to announce our 1st comp of the 17/18 season, a pairs shore dive comp. This time last year we had the highest numbers for the year attend this comp and what better timing right now, considering the amount of squid, salmon and snapper reports coming through.
This comp is aimed at those that are wanting to see how our comps run and possibly learn from an experienced diver. (Although not compulsory we encourage our existing members to pair up with a newbie) Anybody without a dive buddy will be paired up on the day. All welcome regardless of experience.
