PGI Dive Club Minutes of January 31, 2016

We welcomed another new member, Jim Gienko, into our club last night. In addition, Wendy Lee has now also become a member. Michael Smith also assumed the position as Vice President of our club. Barbara and I are still resuming our offices as Sec/Treas and President, respectively.

We had great attendance at the meeting with over 90% of our membership having renewed and paid dues for 2016. If any of you who could not make the meeting want to mail in dues to me at home, or drop them off into our folder at the PGICA offices. I will be revising the club email list to reflect club members who have paid their dues. If you still want to remain in the dive club, please do so ASAP. I have already checked the PGICA membership lists against our club list.

Some highlights of last nights meeting: several members reported on their respective diving trips since our last club business meeting in October. We watched a nice video of Diving in Palau as the meeting proceeded. The planned trip to Roatan is officially canceled due to the outbreak of the Zika Virus in many Central and South American and Caribbean countries. Future dive trips to the Palm Beaches and the Florida Keys were discussed and being planned. Also, details were shared about a late Spring dive trip to Bali for the members to consider. We also will be exploring a live aboard trip for the future, most likely to the Bahamas.

As far as new business: we're looking for a member to host our annual St. Patty's party on March 17 at their home, please email me if you could do so, please let me know. The club would pay for the entree, with members bringing appetizers, side dishes, and desserts. Frank also is looking for volunteers to help with dive club operations, such as writing Commentator articles, programs planning, dive trip planning, social activities planning, newcomer receptions, etc. Please contact him if willing to help.

Next dive club meet up at the Tiki Hut will be Thursday, 2/11 at 5:30 and the next club meeting will be Thursday, 2/25 at 7pm at the civic association.
