Ice is intense - but oh, so worthwhile...
The picture of Adam chasing bubbles under 14" of ice gives you a feel for the attractions of ice diving. A long weekend - and a huge amount of supporting effort from many members of the Club - resulted by Sunday afternoon in Jim, Stephen (a new member) and myself gaining our coveted Ice Diver certifications. Many lessons were learned - and some new ground was broken with research into the location and rescue of lost divers. Expect to hear and see more on that theme in due course.
Many of our members and friends took a lot of pictures over the weekend. Adam is collecting and collating the results. If you have pictures that he's not already expecting to receive, please do pass him copies. Quite a bit of video was taken of the training too. That will be edited and made accessible to members before long.
