Dive-in to Summer 2011. 11th & 12th June.

Postby Sub culture » Mon Dec 06, 2010 4:39 pm

Got some great news for those of you who enjoy attending the Dive-ins.

Thanks to the cooperation of St Albans Sub Aqua Club (http://www.sasac.co.uk/), our gracious hosts, the 2011 Summer Dive-in, which will be the third Summer event, will take place for a WHOLE weekend on Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th June 2011, from 10am until 4pm both days. That's a full 12 hours of crystal clear water to sail your sub in, with the addition of a licensed bar and clubhouse.

Those of you who have attended previous events at this venue, know what a nice facility it is. For those who have yet to attend a Summer Dive-in, the St Albans venue is equipped with a 100ftx60ft swimming pool with a 9ft deep end, and we get exclusive use. That's large enough for all but the biggest of boats, but to give you an idea at the last event, two engel typhoons were happily simultaneously swimming around the pool.

This pool is filled during the Summer months where the sub aqua club use it for training, suit testing and social events. It has minimal chlorine content, and as our event is near the start of Summer, the water is as clear as gin.

There is usually a tame scuba diver on hand to recover any boats that run into trouble.

For those who may be coming some distance, you may wish to stay locally overnight. St Albans is a very nice place to stay, very historic, with beautiful parkland and excellent shopping facilities.

It is quick and simple to travel in to the heart of London via rail, and is close to two motorways (M1 and M25) so is easy to reach by car.

Here is the location on Google Maps-

You can read more about St Albans itself on wikipedia- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Albans

I appreciate advance payment where possible, as it makes life simpler for me on the day and allows me to budget. I can receive payment via personal cheque, or Paypal, but please don't send cash, as this can easily get lost in the post and also makes refunds difficult.
If you want any more details, or I have missed something out, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Please make a note of our website http://www.diveintomodelsubmarines.co.uk which shows videos and pictures from past events, and also our facebook page, which is open to anyone which has similar content and also allows feedback from those who attend http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=133360626703083

I hope to see you there in 2011, but in the meantime if you don't hear from me before, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and look forward to a great 2011 for our hobby.

Andy

I've managed to get some of the fleet dusted off and ready for the Summer Dive In. Missing from the pictures is TK-20 Typhoon class which is due to get some blemishes touched up. I took the opportunity to get some group photos....

Here is what the pool looked like last night. Clear as a bell. SASAC have switched the tap back on to fill it up the last few inches for the weekend- the pool leaks a bit, well it is over a 100 years old!

Well weather wise it was most certainly a weekend of contrasts, a lovely warm and sunny day on the Saturday, and a rather cool wet day on the second! All the same we managed to get plenty of sailing time in on both days, and everyone still seemed to be smiling. Many thanks to all those who turned up- it's those that attend that make the event what it is.

Here are some lovely photos taken by Peter Tatton, who was one of the scuba divers swimming around on the Saturday.
