February 28, 2007 UpDate

Hi All,

Thanks to everyone that made it out on a stormy night for the Info Meeting. I will be mailing meeting packets to folks that have made deposits but were unable to attend. Please give me a call if you have questions about anything on the agenda.

As it currently stands we have one COSEE Scholarship available.

Two questions came up at the Info Meeting: First regarding the possibility of a Discover Scuba Diving Class. I'm checking on the possibility and cost but in the mean time reply to this e-mail to let me know if you might be interested. Click Here: Check out "Discover Scuba Diving Course Details"
The second question was about travel insurance. You may be interested in getting a quote at the following site: Click Here: Check out "Travel Insurance -" or I will not be able to offer trip insurance so if you are interested you can buy directly or call a travel agency.

The Pre-Trip meeting is tentatively set for Thursday, June 7, 2007. At the meeting we get to know each other a bit and talk about what to take, packing strategies and airline regulations, check out books you may want to borrow, set up a snorkeling practice, complete required waivers and medical forms and make final payments as necessary. Please let me know if this date works for you. Feel free to bring the family.... We usually meet at our home in North Collins. Map to follow....

The payment schedule for the trip will be as follows. I have printed accounting sheets and will be sending them by regular mail sometime this week.
By March 30, 2007, your account will need a $1000.00 balance. (This is $600 plus the $400 deposit)
The Final Balance will be due by June 1, 2007, and will reflect any COSEE Scholarship award.

I have attached a two page .pdf file of suggested locations if you need to purchase snorkeling equipment. If you can't open the file the included locations are Lake Erie Diving Center, 8542 Route 5, Angola, 549-3338; and Dip ‘N Dive, 500Niagara Falls Blvd., Tonawanda, 837-3483. Any of the local Scuba Dive Centers should be able to assist in selecting gear.
