Hello fellow Divers!

While summer might be starting to fade, it is FAR from over for us!  With the upcoming California Coastal Cleanup at Whiskeytown Reservoir coming in just over a week, we have another great opportunity to DIVE in warmer water with great vis.  Make sure you attend our meeting next Tuesday (Sept 12th) where we will go over all the details.  We dove there last year and the new location at the “Curtain” promises to be easy, safe, interesting and fun.  You’ll be sad if you miss this!

Also at our next meeting are two interesting subjects.  One is the proposal by California Fish and Game to yet again limit Abalone take.  Charlie will cover some of the details regarding this issue and the club will be asked to present an opinion, perhaps for presenting at the Redding meeting on the 15th.  If you have an opinion on this, you need to let it be known.

The other special subject covered at the next meeting is ‘Diving for a Cause’.  Brandi (who provided a NICE fresh ling cod fillet at the Trinidad BBQ, by the way!) recently participated in this activity by diving in La Paz, and will share some of her observations in an informal presentation at the dive meeting.

In addition to all of this, we hope to look over a variety of pictures from fellow divers.  Some may be selected for display at the Marina Café (with THANKS to Denis for all his efforts in framing this issue!)

…and of course there’s the normal friendship and camaraderie of visiting with like-minded people that‘s not to be missed!  So… if you want to hear about last month’s dive/BBQ at Trinidad, if you want to know more about the upcoming events, if you have an opinion you want to share, or if you just want to hang with other divers for a while: set aside an hour or so next Tuesday to join us at Chan’s in Arcata (at 7 pm) for this month’s meeting of the Humboldt Skin Divers!

Remember, “The world is run by the people who show up!”  I hope to see you show up there… Cliff
