President’s Message - January 2011

I’d like to thank all my supporters for their vote this past election.

It was a tough race but the relentless campaigning, cold calls, sign holding, and baby kissing paid off. I’d also like to thank my competition, Ms. Sarah Palin and Mr. Howard Dean. Sarah, your outdoor experience of hunting and fishing with Todd certainly gave you a foot up in this election. Not to mention your international relations experience, “I can see Russia from my house” –SP. Secondly, I’d like to thank Howard Dean. You ran a great campaign. I figured my presidential aspirations were all but gone till you changed the course of the election. I guess your motivational scream riddled speech may have swayed voters away.

Again, I would like to thank all my constituents for what you’ve done over the last few months. Once I take office in 2011 I’ll have six figured jobs awaiting all of you.

Oh, also I should probably mention something about diving. It’s the slow season for diving but a few of us will brave the cold and dive every weekend throughout the winter. The time and location of the dives will be announced at the weekly meeting as well as posted on facebook.

Also, a special thanks to Graham for his service in 2010 as president. Excellent job Graham!

-Jes ~ El Presidente

-Air Bubbles: Erika cannot do AB.

Bill W would like to help but won’t be able to make a lot of meetings. We have had remote editors in the past but it doesn’t work well; it’s best to come to meetings. One thought is to maybe do newsletter every other month. Life members and others who are far away feel it’s a good connection to the Club. Mary will do Jan issue of AB. New Year’s Day party and dive should be in AB to get info out to members.

Old Business:

-Elections: Ray moved that the secretary cast one vote for the slate of officers since there was no race for offices. Officers for 2011 are: President-Jesse Leslie; VP-John Sears; Treasurer-Vinny Egizi; Secretary-Meg Tennissen. - Tonight is also voting for Photo Contest.

Get there about 5:30 to help.

-Raffle ticket table, last minute tickets, dues, winning photos will be brought; Paul will bring historical stuff.

-Pizza party here – where to get pizzas? Joe’s Pizza in Beverly?

-Gift for Pat and Annette. Store in VT for kayak equip, Sam’s; and grocery certificate.

New Business:

-Tony might organize a New Year’s dive; White Beach might work at 9:30 or 10. Ft Sewall is safe and well protected.

-OT Monday night for football game?

Dive Talk:

-Susan was in Dominica; it was fabulous, but right after hurricane so vis 60ft; temp 87. She saw everything on every dive, every kind of eel under the sun. The dive operator was great, ratio was 3 to 1; they offered a divemaster for one diver with a lots of needs. They also did lot of hiking, lots of waterfalls. Going back in Feb it was that much fun.

-Jes and Adam dove at Salem Willows, 41°F temp, saw sand… and small lobsters. Jes got hooked in the finger by mackerel hook.

General Discussion:

-Mary – flyers on the head table about dive sites at Stellwagen Bank and minutes of the BSC meeting on 11/10.

-Mike’s Moments:

-Divers in Australia boat diving, but when they surfaced, their boat was gone. They get rescued and get back to the boat, but then it gets hit by rogue wave.

-US Govt acoustic feedback system to deter divers in ports

-Japanese whaling fleets are making changes since the Sea Shepheard society has new boat, the Godzilla, to harass whaling boats. Armed

Secretary: not read Treasurer: not read - Old Business:.

Paul brought in displays for the banquet- some need a little TLC

Bill will look at them to prep for the banquet

Dive Talk:

-Richard – dove in the GOT at the NE Aquarium. The sharks are back and Myrtle the turtle still insists on being petted. The fish that were rescued at Ft Wetherill were there and have grown. Good experience.

-Dan, Meg, Lauren and Dan’s nephew, on his 1st dry suit dive, went to Ft Sewall. It was flat calm, 41-46 degrees and vis was about 1 ft.

General Discussion:

-Dougie Russell had brought up a lot of pieces from the USS NH and has been working on those pieces he’s brought up – making cribbage boards, etc. He’s short of some things, if anyone has items from the NH that he can use, like the J nails, rings or trunnel pins – he would be happy to trade for pieces. He quit diving 15-20 years ago, but is going back to the NH next year, looking forward to getting back there.

Sewell. Tony is organizing, already 16 people confirmed, as well as Dive Finatics. Tony was talking with

-Speaker: Vic Mastone of MA Bureau of Underwater Archeology Resources has agreed to speak in Feb. Can speak about further explorations of dugout canoes, Battle of Chelsea Creek in Revolutionary War, attempts to find old Minot Light. Will request 2/3.

Old Business:

New Business:

-Meeting next week? Yes. Pizza night is 12/30, just a party, not a business meeting.

-President should appoint committee chairs, including Program Committee. Programs include dives

– New Year’s Day, Easter Egg, boat dives, seal dives; parties; speaking engagements. Picnic, photo contest and banquet committees can be sub- committees of the Program Committee. Other committees include Air Bubbles cmte, Membership cmte and Website cmte.

-Dive coordinators? Tony did a great job last winter and offered to do that again this year. Jesse will be doing Saturday dives.

-Meeting at BK didn’t work well last summer. John F. could be summer Sunday dive coordinator. Last summer it seemed that people made their own plans and didn’t meet at


-Next years’ banquet–where? when? Don’t know the details of how they cater at here (PCYC) but we might consider that. Someone should talk to them. Later date seemed to work well, rather than first Saturday of Dec. Next year 10 Dec?

Dive Talk:

-Jes at Salem Willows with Lewis,

39°F, 20’ max, vis 15ft. Found a gun, a

Springfield 1911, was a replica so didn’t have to turn it in; everything was authentic except missing firing pin. On same dive found underwater video camera with headband which Lewis had lost. Watched the movie on it, saw Lewis go into the water and then it fell off his head. 2nd camera he found this year, but didn’t get to keep either. Found some fishing lures and 6 cents. Saw some scallops. There seems to be a surface current there, but not so much at the bottom. Planning to go to the Willows this Sat; hit the water at 11am

-John M was in Bonaire with Bob. Had rough water first few days. Saw angelfish, liofish and Man-o- war Jellies. Divers were being asked to mark every spot lionfish are seen.

Air Bubbles – January 2011

2010 NSF Photo Contest

Hi all, Meg has finished tallying the ballots and below are the photo contest results. Several members have mentioned that the photo contest should be held at an earlier date next year as it is difficult for members to print photos as it gets so close to the holiday season, and I agree. This way, we would have ample time to be able to have the winner's photos displayed in their winning photo frames and announce the winners at the banquet. I'm thinking of having the contest in early November next year.

Members have also suggested having different categories next time. Next year I will send an email asking for suggestions from the members and have members vote for what categories they would like for the contest.

I want to thank Meg Tennissen for making up the voting ballots and taking on the tedious task of counting the votes and determining the winning photos for the contest. I would also like to thank Mary Howard for ordering and obtaining the prizes for the photo contest winners, and Bill Werner, Mike Denneler, John Ferrier, and the others that helped me set up the tables and poster boards on the day of the contest.

Prizes will be given out & photos will be returned at the club pizza party.

I also want to thank everyone that participated in the photo contest this year. We had an amazing turnout and I was proud to have so many beautiful pictures to display at the contest and at the banquet. The club members have seen so many cool things on their dives and it is such a nice experience to share these things through your photos with others. Thanks so much for supporting the club's photo contest!

Air Bubbles – January 2011

December Presentation:

On December 9 Andrew Martinez gave the Club an enlightening update to the fourth edition of his book

Marine Life of the North Atlantic. He showed slides of pictures in the book, demonstrating some of the species you can see out there if you look closely enough and in the right places, and answered questions about the creatures in the photos.

Andy signed copies of books purchased by attendees at the meeting.

Pictured, Andy, above, in front of his first slide, and

in 2 pictures below answering questions from the audience.

2010 End of Year Wrap-Up

Hi all –

The new Club president is Jesse Leslie, Vice President is John Sears, Treasurer is Vinny Egizi, and Secretary is Meg Tennissen. Their contact information is on page 2 of this newsletter if you need to reach them for any reason.

At the same time that we held officer elections, we voted for the Diver of the Year and Member of the Year from the members chosen during the year by 2010 President Graham Smith. These were announced at the banquet, so if you weren’t there you might not know that Tony Vieira was voted Diver of the Year for 2010. Member of the year is Mary Howard.
