MAHS Now Meets Bi-Monthly - You're invited!
Battle of the Atlantic Research and Expedition Group
Bill Chadwell, Operations Coordinator for the Battle of the Atlantic Research and Expedition Group, will give an overview of the Group, its mission, vision, and ethics; previous archaeological projects the Group has completed off the North Carolina coast; and the Group's future direction under its recently-announced strategic plan.
Join us, Tuesday, April 11, at 7:30 PM at McLean High School. The public is invited.
Diving First Aid for Professional Divers
DAN's Diving First Aid for Professional Divers program will be offered at Blue Octopus Scuba, 4154 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA, on Sunday, April 30 starting at 9:00 a.m. DFA Pro is DAN's most comprehensive diver preparedness program. It combines four DAN courses (see the flyer here) -- and you don't have to be a dive "pro" to take it! The regular cost is $225 "all in," including student manual, slates for all four courses and all supplies. MAHS members and students, however, can get a $70 discount for a final cost of $155. Call Blue Octopus Scuba at (703) 461-3483 to register; you must mention MAHS at time of registration to get the discount. With questions, contact Course Instructor, DAN Instructor Trainer and MAHS Dive Safety Officer Earl Glock at Earl@BlueOctopusScuba.com.
Over the final weekend in June, MAHS returned to Pickles Reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for its annual Field School and ongoing survey and mapping of shipwreck features.
Images from the weekend of work can be found on the MAHS Projects page.
