It's time to buy your tickets for the annual Dinner Dance! This year, we have picked a new theme- Dive Destinations. Wear a t-shirt or other attire from one of your favorite dive trips. Tickets will be on sale using PayPal, at every meeting through January, or you can order them from Rich Palanzi at (508) 797-7027 or via email. Tickets are priced at only $30!. So get those Dive Logs signed off for diving awards, and choose your pictures or artifacts to enter in the contest! If you missed the Banquet last year, don't make the same mistake twice.
Banquet Photos Cocktail hour is from 6:30-7:30. Listen to those tunes that remind us of warm days and nights while having a drink and voting. Voting will take place from 6:45-7:30 so be sure to bring your entries early before the voting begins. Diver of the Year will also be awarded. Please bring some kind of raffle item, the raffle seems to have evolved into a fun combination of prizes for all. Any item will do, and it does not have to be dive related. Mark your calendar now so you'll be able to join the limbo contest!! See you there!!
Join us for a weekly Date @ 8 shore dive. We meet at the Burger King on Rt.128 in Beverly every Saturday morning and head to one of Cape Ann's numerous dive sites for a dive or two. Dive sites are decided on the spot to accomodate the experience and skill levels of those who show up, and everyone is welcome - members and non-members alike. Click for photos of past shore dives
Please contact the coordinator (listed on the Date @ 8 page linked
above) a day or two before Saturday if you'd like to join us, to make
sure the group doesn't leave without you if you're running a little late.
Also, please note that during winter months we meet at 10am! See you there!

For more than 30 years Andrew Martinez has been photographing marine life of the North Atlantic. Deeply respectful of the natural world, Martinez's work conveys his sense of its profound spiritual beauty. Since he dives year-round in New England, his photos vividly illustrate the changing seasons of the sea. Our next meeting will feature Andy presenting the 5th edition of his book, Marine Life of the North Atlantic. Andy will also demonstrate how to use his book.
Since the book has been completely redone Andy was able to make many changes in this new edition. For the first time, he was able to edit all 390 color photos to represent accurate color and tone. Andy has added over 200 new images, 60 new creatures or plants, and expanded the range. In total, there are 278 species of plants, fish, and invertebrates along with comments on the animals' identification, habitat, range and natural history. This expanded coverage makes Marine Life of the North Atlantic an invaluable reference for scuba divers, naturalists and aquarium enthusiasts.
