The next General Meeting of The Sea Divers will be Tuesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at Round Table Pizza, 4330 Redondo Beach Blvd. (just east of Hawthorne Blvd. in the Northpoint/CVS Shopping Center), Torrance, CA. Go to http://seadivers.org/meetings.htm for a map. The meeting is free, and open to everybody interested in diving.
March 1. Larry Breazeale, Charlie Orr, Jocko Robinson and Ken McElvain of the California Classic Equipment Divers (CCED) http://www.calclassic.org/ and the Historical Diving Society (HDS) http://www.hds.org/ will present an introductory program about these two organizations and their dedication to preserving the history of diving. They will display and explain some heavy dive gear! CCED was organized by Charles Orr and William "Duke" Drake in 1998. The purpose of CCED is to actively dive the classic heavy gear, both hard hat and vintage scuba, to demonstrate the techniques used in diving the old equipment, to preserve it's history and to honor the men who dove it. Many, if not all, of the CCED members are also very proud members of the HDS. Leslie Leaney co-founded HDS in 1992. HDS has about 4,000 members worldwide, in about 40 different countries. In 1993, Leslie founded the very prestigious "Journal of Diving History".

Future planned free Seadiver meetings are described below and are at the same location and time:
April 5. Christian Norman of Westbound Diving http://westbounddiving.com/ will present a program about the challenges of starting a new six-pack diving service out of Marina del Rey. He will show pictures taken at the Channel Islands, local wrecks and reefs. Christian has been a recreational and technical diver locally for the past 8 years, and has just started his own boat dive service.

May 3. Peter Landecker will present a program about diving the Revillagigedos Archipelago (more commonly known as the Socorro Islands) aboard the Solmar V http://www.solmarv.com/socorro.html. We journey 250 miles south of Los Cabos, Mexico, into the eastern Pacific Ocean to dance with the Giant Pacific manta ray, cavort with dolphins, be a voyeur on the mating of an octopus threesome, and view several different species of sharks. This is remote, adventure diving at its finest. Peter will share some of his experiences as well as pictures and movies he recorded on this trip.
