  • Guest Speaker – David Finnern, California Wreck Divers Association
    • David gave a very entertaining talk on diving wrecks on the West Coast.  From diving the Winfield Scott off Anacapa, to Indian canoes in the lakes of Idaho, he covered a lot of ground. Great information on wreck diving in places that you wouldn’t think of, and the types of wrecks you don’t think of either (anybody every dive a sunken train?).  Had a great time, and he signed copies of his books after.  Great presentation!

Was great seeing those of you who could make it out.  And look forward to seeing all of you soon, hopefully while diving!
