We had 11 in my class, two showed for checkout and one dropped Saturday morning for ear problems.

But I've got my temp card now!

Top in your class! Congrats!

What's the deal with the 9 that didn't show up?

Congrats to you!

But weird about the 9 who didn't show...were there bad conditions or something?

Congrat's on the completion of your course it only gets better !!
As a matter of fact, I rented a tank and went diving in my pool this weekend.....(just needed to get wet) !! My next trip probably won't be until August (Pensacola, FL.)

I already know my addiction will only get worse. :)

The other ten: 3 are supposed to go next weekend, 2 were getting referrals for their trip and the rest...? I don't know.

As to conditions: nothing major. A bit chilly, but with a 5/4 and a 5 hooded shorty they were very manageable. Of course, when we hit the thermocline at 40' it wasn't any fun any more. The first was about 28' though and the platforms were above it, so all was well. :)

Cold water divers get better, faster. So, stick with it and when you get the opportunity to dive warm water, you'll be a buoyancy god.

Congrats on your certification! Best advice I've seen as a new diver is in one of the signatures in this forum, "don't ever add up all of your scuba receipts!" :smiley20:

There will be plenty! Go get wet!!

Christine says she's whipping someone about you're manuals.


Its not that the others couldnt make it its just that after spending one weekend with him they couldnt handle a second one in close proximity.

I think several from my OW class never completed the OW dives outside the pool. I don't get it. You paid your money and demonstrated your skills already, it's just doing it again in a bigger muddier pool.
