Well done to Martin Royal who completed his Rebreather Sports Mixed gas course. 

iDive Members Rescue Model Boat

Four members of iDive travelled to Needham Lake today to rescue a model boat for Clifford Galsworthy of the Gipping Valley model club. The model boat sank about 6 weeks ago. Thanks to divers Raj Mistry and Dave Lock for recovering the boat with Naina Mistry and Martin Royal who provided surface support. Clifford made a donation to the iDive for rescuing his boat and hopes that he won’t need to call on our services again.

... And The Winner Is...

Simon Russell, the lucky winner of the Fathom diving DSMBs in the club prize draw. The lovely folks at Fathom Diving gave us a pack of DSMBS as their sponsorship prize for our recent feature article in Scuba Magazine. The club decided the best way for everyone to get a chance to share these goodies was to run a raffle with the proceeds going to club funds. The prize was donated by Carol Wood who wrote the article with support from club members and the draw raised £90.00 for the club.

Try Dive Vouchers For Sian Ryan Memorial Event

iDive donated two try dive vouchers as proposed by Karl Lucas Harness in support of a local fund raising event for Sian Grace Ryan to celebrate her life.

The 16-year-old had a bright future ahead of her as a footballer who was already taking part in trials for England and Ipswich Town when she died in the horror crash on the A14. The tragic accident occurred at Nacton on August 17 2009.

She had a promising life ahead of her as a top flight footballer before her life was devastatingly cut short in a car crash.
