Hey, welcome to the S.C.U.B.A. Sig if you can't remember what that stands for it's Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apperatus. Divers and non divers alike are welcome in this sig, all we ask is that the talk be restricted to diving or marine subjects and that the foul language is kept to a minumum. If you have a suggestion about a new menu item that should be added please mail xx175 and I will put it under consideration. The buddies section is a place for divers to leave a way to contact each other if you, wish to be added to this list, please send a message to xx175 and your name will be added as soon as possible, included in the message must be your name, and some way of contacting you, either a phone number or e-mail address, you must also specify your certification level and specialties (if any)(this is not for discrimination, but so that say two wreck divers can find each other and plan a deep dive instead of having to send mail to everybody on the list to see if they are a wreck diver) and if you wish, a few lines about oyurself, what kinds of dives you like, when you are available, and anything else that you'd like to have said about yourself. The dive shops section is a list of local dive shops, the second part of the dive shops section is devoted to charter companies, if i have missed a shop or charter agency, please mail me as this sig is fairly new and it would be of great help if i could have help from local divers to get a complete list of all the dive shops in town. The Upcoming events choice is just what it sounds like, a list of upcoming events in the B.C. and Washington area. Please if you hear about an event that is not mentioned please e-mail xx175. There will be a section describing local wrecks and other such interesting places, but it won't be ready for a couple of weeks probably, i need time to find a comprehensive list of all such places in our area.
