The seasonal program staff members are sleeping in this morning. There are no program participants at the Florida Sea Base this week. Tomorrow we will start on several projects to prepare for the onslaught of scuba participants that start arriving in about two weeks, plus oodles of new sailing participants. Let the good times roll! (Starting tomorrow.)
The PADI Member Forum will be held at the Florida Sea Base on Tuesday, 01 March from 19:00 until 21:00 or so. PADI Member Forms are scheduled annually at several venues around the US and the Caribbean. It is an opportunity for the PADI Regional Manager to bring everyone up to speed on changes that have been made in the past year.
Capt. Dennis submitted the following status report on the boat delivery to Belize:
How many captains does it take to sit on a boat waiting for winds to die down? At least three apparently. We’ve been sneaking into the hotels pool (just sitting not swimming), trying to find magazines in English, and cleaning the boat over and over. Looks like we’ll be stuck in Puerta Adventuras Mexico until Wednesday March something or other. The adventuras is very adventurous if you have moola to swim with dolphins, manatees, and Texans.

I hope to make more progress on the summer staff hiring today and maybe place some orders for replacement items like weights. Scuba weights are heavy and made of lead. I don’t understand how we manage to “consume” as much as we do every year. It’s one of those things that should last forever. A substantial quantity seems to disappear each year.
I hope you have a good Monday.
