The United Divers of New Hampshire (UDNH) Dive Club was founded
in 1975 to educate divers and expand the knowledge of diving in
both the State of New Hampshire and in New England in general. The
club also provides an informal setting for diver interaction.
My name is Keith Kelly and I am the president of the Finatics Dive Club (www.facebook.com/groups/finaticsdiveclub), a group of about 30 divers from southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts. In our last meeting we were discussing what to do with the excess of used scuba gear we all seem to collect in the basement, and decided we would hold a Used Gear Swap Meet. The idea is to put people in need of gear in touch with those who don’t for a win-win situation; some get a great deal on stuff and others get more space and a couple bucks in their pocket.
We are planning on holding our first Used Gear Swap Meet on May 18th, tentatively at Stage Fort Park (but that is flexible if it doesn’t work for the majority of people). The event will be very low key and laid back; no fees or contracts, just an opportunity for divers to get together and share what they’ve got or pick up something they’re missing. Everyone makes their own deals and decisions.
Obviously an event like this works better with greater participation, which is why I am contacting you. We would love for anyone from the United Divers of New Hampshire club to join us, whether to sell, trade, or buy gear, or just to meet fellow divers and go for an easy dive at the end of the swap meet. If your club or any of your members may be interested in joining in, please contact me either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone 603-289-6039 to discuss it further.
Our guest speaker will be Donnie Stephens, owner of Atlantic Aquasport, Rye, NH. Donnie will be bringing some antique/older dive equipment that "most people have never seen." Donnie is a scuba instructor, life-long diveshop owner, civic leader and skilled public speaker. Donnie is a multifaceted individual who covers many disciplines.
Donnie Stepens is one of the last divers to have dove the Andria Doria on trimix before the ship began collapsing to the ocean floor. Donnie is also a pioneer of the diving industry in the NH Seacoast area.
After the regular meeting we will have "Refresher Part 2: Basic SCUBA Skills" in the pool.
