Closing Report

Participants, Phil Kelly, Jon Stacke, Bryan Schmidt and Karen Capistran

This is a continuation of the GLSPS Board of Directors desire to encourage people to join us as a member and to invite those that haven’t participated for a while, or not at all, to participate and meet other members. To that end, we have four new members that enjoyed diving off the RV Preservation (Research Vessel) on shipwreck along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Since the event was only on Sunday, we did one dive on the Madeira and the second dive on the Hesper. The weather turned out very well, even though scattered thunderstorms were predicted most of the day. We were able to slip in between them all day. We were lucky.

A hardly lunch was prepared on board to keep our crew fueled.

At the end of the day we came to the conclusion that fun was had by all.

Thank you to those that helped make the event successful and all the participants that joined us for the day from Air Down There Scuba.
