Time to decide on what we are doing about the party season - if you've got any opinions beyond the usual

"mess around in the lake for a bit then go to the Boat and give each other loadsa silly presents!" then please let me know

If you have a preference between doing this in December or January - please post that too

I'm pretty open to any ideas - as long as we keep the presents bit in somewhere and I get another bucket of maltesers

Re: Christmas Dooooooooo

I want to come out to play - it sounds as though last years was a bit of a hoot. Just for logistical ease I would say January rather than December, but whenever it is I will try to join in.

Can I request not 8th or 15th Dec I'm back in Egypt - yes again!

That's not Christmas!

Lets dive on Sunday 23rd December. I'll provide sherry and mince pies for any red-nosed freedivers.

OK folks.. it's all booked up

Saturday 12th Jan - meet at 1pm at Chepstow for a fancy dress dive, prize of something ridiculous for the best fancy dress, we'll get you something good if you can actually dive in it!

Dinner in the evening in the snug at The Boat, their Christmas menu and they have a new chef. Bring a pressie worth around £10 that anyone in the gang could have a laugh it. If you bring a gift, you get a gift, if you don't you don't. Please don't use the fact that it's in January to bring some crap your granny gave you.... you know who you are ; )

Sunday - in traditional hung over fashion, we're running the first aid/CPR update, takes most of the day and will be at NDAC. Cost is £75, details on a separate thread. If yours it two years or more old, you need to update. If you've never done a first aid/CPR course, you should and this will do!

I've emailed you personally with an invite so please let me know if you'd like to come and if you're bringing any one. I'll get the menu out towards the end of November

We tried booking up paintballing and/or other stuff but it's d*** expensive and the wrong time of year.. maybe we'll do that for a summer do!

Looking forward to it
