cc Our water which art in quarry
Shalloweth be not thy depth
Thy colour green
Thy surface serene
No earth as it's set in sandstone
Give us this day some decent viz
And forgive us our Sambas
As we forgive those who wobble beside us
And lead us not beneath the tethered plate
But deliver us from evil lactic burn
Let mine be the deepest
So I get the glory
We shiver and shiver
Sorry about the italics. Browser problems. Hope no-one religious takes offense - remember, God must have a sense of humour, if he created us! :)
Now gather around... from now on I do believe we should recite this before each dip...

saltFree christmas carol anyone? clearly it has to be based on
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
Here's a verse. Please feel free to add...:D

Up the Scuba Angels bring
All Saltfree who’re wandering
Each freediver’s safety-minded
Clip their lanyards to the line

Joy at all the FHOFs rising
Bubble rockets, surface busting
He who dares to go so deep
Ask their Angels not to sleep

Up the Scuba Angels bring
All Saltfree who’re wandering
"Down and down, into the green
saltFree divers fall unseen.
Dropping to the bottom plate
where scuba angels wait and wait.

Time to take the tag and turn
Rise triumphant, legs a-burn
Soon you meet your safety buddy
Break the surface, nose all bloody (?)

Up the Scuba Angels Bring
All SaltFree who're wandering...

on the other hand maybe we should leave this to Barry...
diving in the green
in a nice yellow monofin
past the scubies we go
nose pinched all the way...

(meant to be working, only had time for that one)
