Ocean Wreck Diver's Newsletter Issue #2 March 2013
Ocean Wreck Divers

Interested in becoming an OWD Member?

If you are interested in becoming a member of Ocean Wreck Divers, we ask that you attend 3 meetings and have a valid and recognized certifying agency card (PADI, NAUI, or any nationally recognized agency).

At the third meeting, we'll need a copy of your "C" card and have you fill out an application and pay your first year's dues ($35.00, $25.00 annually thereafter).
We vote you in that night, if everything is in order. Annual dues are due November 1st of each year.

Please know, we ask that our members contribute their time to our fundraising events in one way or another.

Attendance at meetings will give you the best opportunities to get on the dive schedule. We have an active dive season planned.

We are looking for people who are sensible, competent and safety minded. We recommend that you carry D.A.N. insurance, because it's sensible. We all do.

Club Meetings:

Our meetings are currently held at Aardvark Scuba, located at 12 Lanes Mill Rd in Brick NJ on the second Wednesday of every month at 8pm.

Gary Gentile - The Mechanics of Shipwreck Photography - $25pp
This workshop encompasses the basics of underwater photography from a practical point of view. It covers aspects of underwater photography that help to produce useful images. Discussions include the selection of cameras, lenses, film, and strobes and the techniques, skills and awareness that take into account the special environment that shipwrecks create. The workshop also covers housed cameras, amphibious cameras, view finders and the single lens reflex, telephoto to wide angle lenses, film vs digital, strobes, and manual exposure to through-the-lens metering.
Dan Lieb - Mapping Shipwreck - $25pp
The participant will map a model of a shipwreck as a member of a team that will work under time constraints similar to those during an actual dive. The model wreck will be partly buried in a sandy bottom at a given depth. They will record measurements taken and then create a site plan (drawing) of the wreck based upon those measurements.
For reservations and more information, please call 732-776-6261 or e-mail NJHDA.
