I'll be there unless something incredibly, uttermostly, life defyingly important comes up! Both days Sat/Sun 42m. Might be space in car for lifts from Bristol. I'll also be camping.

Hello

I'll be there both days and will be camping, even if its chucking it down! Won't go below 20m (probably more likely 5m, as I still can't equalise very well!)

See you all there

In case you are interested, on the Saturday - after our main training, I'm planning on conducting a bit of a safety/rescue review on the pontoon for anyone that wants it (unless the weather is particularly horrific).

Would like to run through:
Surface rescue
Rescue from depth
Getting someone onto the platform
Oxygen kit use
and of course, basic safe training protocol

No charge, as many of you as are interested can take part

The idea is to get as many of you as we can confident with this stuff, as well as with setting up the pontoon and counterweight so next year we can have more meets

If you're interested, let me know here.

On Sunday morning, I'll then run through the set up again with anyone that is interested

Might even dream up some little tests and come up with some kind of "I can run a meet" certificate idea.... mmmm my brain is buzzing....

"More meets"...yipeee. I'd do anything to go in that direction! Safety course me up.. I'm sure my lifeguarding training could be handy too!

mmm.. that "I can run a meet" idea has brought butterflies to my stomach!

This all sounds great, possitive, progressive and wonderfull... I like it.

Great idea Sam! Count me in for the safety course.
I'll be there both days max 25m.
Jay may I rely again on your generosity for camping and maybe lift?
Cheers,
Kat

Hi Sam,

I was wondering if you'd have space in your car for a poor, out-of-shape student if you're driving up from Falmouth?

I would really love to come along, both days, max 25m.
