PADI Open Water Instructors, who I know we have already congratulated but always deserves another mention
Well Done to our new PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors - Andrew Ritchie and Bridget Weid and to the rest of the guys (only one girl!) at Stoney today.
Last night at Greetham Valley Golf Club saw the annual Active Rutland Community Sports Awards, a special occasion where Rutland's outstanding athletes, coaches, volunteers, sports clubs, participants and projects within Rutland are recognised for their hard work, commitment and achievements over the past year.
There are 17 awards to help recognise the outstanding contribution individuals are making to sport and physical activity in Rutland and Dive Rutland Club was nominated in the Club of the Year category
A huge thank you to anyone who took the time to complete the nomination for our Dive club it is much appreciated and was a HUGE surprise, but one that made us all very proud.
Representing our club was Rachel Perry, Tracey Roberts, Rick Smith and Bridget Weid all changing wetsuits and drysuits for some more smart attire.
Our category award was the last but one of the night and although we did not win, it was a pleasure to be part of such an amazing night and our congratulations go out to anyone who was nominated (not just the winners) as it really shows there are some outstanding people and clubs in our small county of Rutland and as they say anything is possible, it just takes a little time and effort
Congratulations to our students on the following qualifications awarded during September
Yesterdays training at Stoney was a little special. First of all it was exceptionally quiet as you can see from the pictures taken yesterday at 7:20
It was Wreck Speciality day, nothing particularly special about that, I hear you all think... well today was a little special. First of all this was the final speciality required by Sam Adcock for his Master Scuba Diver. One that he had always wanted to do but had to wait until he was fifteen to complete, so he could have completed another 'easier' speciality before today, but choose to wait... on top of that we also completed his fifth dive during the course.
Sam, joined us in our Seal team and has progressed through Junior Open Water and all the way to Master Scuba Diver (well once a little paperwork has been completed!). He has also introduced in recent times to Haribo Strawberries and Party Rings (do you remember those?)
So a very special day indeed... one I was very proud to be part of... Well done Sam....
