But Indian Valley Scuba still has three more weekends to spend there before we put the virtual cover on the pool for the winter. And this weekend was a great one to enjoy at the local pond, with 55 degree air in the morning, warming up to nearly 80 each day. The water is still great, at 75 degrees down to about 40 feet, so the diving is as good as it can get there.
Both Saturday and Sunday saw some huge IVS crowds there, enjoying the return of Bev to the grill, cooking up some beer-steamed chicken, fresh Amberjack from North Carolina, and the usual menu of dogs, burgers and salads. Team IVS does eat well, that is for sure!
Congratulations to Jarod Rodgers, John Zyskowski, Brenden Malloy, Brad Creveling, & Rob Lunny, on completing their Advanced Open Water certifications this weekend.
John Glodowski, lead designer on the IAHD back-mounted scooter, was on site both days tweaking the development of our third generation scooter, designed specifically to allow handicapped divers with little or no use of their legs to be able to motor through the water alongside the rest of us. This is a phenomenal product that opens up the sport of scuba diving to so many of our less-than-able-bodied friends. Make sure you stop by the shop and check out the IAHD scooter.
