So get those Dive Logs signed off for diving awards, and choose your pictures or artifacts to enter in the contest! If you missed the Banquet last year, don't make the same mistake twice.
Banquet Photos Cocktail hour is from 6:30-7:30. Listen to those tunes that remind us of warm days and nights while having a drink and voting. Voting will take place from 6:45-7:30 so be sure to bring your entries early before the voting begins. Diver of the Year will also be awarded. Please bring some kind of raffle item, the raffle seems to have evolved into a fun combination of prizes for all. Any item will do, and it does not have to be dive related. Mark your calendar now so you'll be able to join the limbo contest!! See you there!!
Join us for a weekly Date @ 8 shore dive. We meet at the Burger King on Rt.128 in Beverly every Saturday morning and head to one of Cape Ann's numerous dive sites for a dive or two. Dive sites are decided on the spot to accomodate the experience and skill levels of those who show up, and everyone is welcome - members and non-members alike. Click for photos of past shore dives
Please contact the coordinator (listed on the Date @ 8 page linked
above) a day or two before Saturday if you'd like to join us, to make
sure the group doesn't leave without you if you're running a little late.
Also, please note that during winter months we meet at 10am! See you there!

The Massachusetts State Police Underwater Recovery Team (URT) was established in October of 1968. At that time, the Team included 6 members, all stationed at Troop F, Logan International Airport. Today, the Team has grown to include a compliment of up to 30 members, stationed throughout the various Troops across the state. State Police Divers are highly skilled, professional individuals who, aside from the daily duties of a Trooper, are called upon in times of need to perform the delicate and sometimes emotionally grueling task of search and recovery. As a separate entity from any other unit of the State Police, the URT is specially trained to perform a variety of water related missions. Although trained in many situations, the Team Commander makes the final decision regarding the participation of the team in a particular mission. Because safety is first and foremost, a mission which compromises the safety of any diver is immediately terminated. As an added safety, the URT frequently calls on other units such as the Air Wing and Marine Unit as well as the US Coast Guard and Massachusetts Environmental Police for rapid transportation and support to remote areas of the Commonwealth.
