Mar 4 – The Evolution of Diver Protection – Dr. Neil Pollock (Webinar)

Dr. Pollock is no stranger to the global diving community or FNF. He has been an integral part of our ongoing diver education initiatives and currently serves as an Associate Professor at Laval University and also the Research Chair at the hyperbaric medical group for Scuba at the Hotel-Dieu de Levis. Compressed gas diving has always been thought of as an equipment-dependent activity, but the degree to which this is true has accelerated over time. Dr. Pollock’s Webinar presentation will juxtapose human physiology alongside recent, emerging, and future technologies to demonstrate how both risks and protections are evolving and are likely to continue evolving. The goal is to promote thoughtful diving and an appreciation of both safe practice and possibilities.

April 1 – Intro to Tec : Info Night – Trevor Kutcy& David Craig, Tech Instructors

Regardless of the configuration you ultimately decide to dive (doubles, sidemount, rebreather, other), there are pros and cons to each. But there’s one thing for sure…Tec divers have all the coolest gear! Scooters! Multiple tanks! Shearwater computers! Just awesome! But equally as awesome is the responsibility for safety and discipline that comes with Tec diving. Many people find it intimidating. But it opens many doors to new adventures, wrecks seen by very few others, great teamwork and a whole new level of fun. Unlike many other “Tec” groups, the FNF Tec team is an open group of divers that is more than happy to share their experience and passion with everyone. Whether you’re committed to getting into Tec diving, or just poking around to see if this is for you, this session is ideal as Trevor and David share a bit of their Tec journey, some of the pre-requisites and gear requirements and more. Lots of time for discussion and questions.

April 29 – Sidemount with DiveRite – Lamar Hires, DiveRite Founder (webinar)

You enter the water light as a feather and don your tanks while floating effortlessly. Sound good? How about this one… You wriggle through the restricted opening to get to the other side of the cave, pushing your tanks in front of you for the thrill of finding something on the other side nobody has seen before. OR…You glide effortlessly through the shipwreck, exploring a piece of history on the bottom of the ocean. These experiences can all have SIDEMOUNT DIVING in common. Popular in Cave Country for decades, and now growing rapidly among recreational divers, Sidemount is taking it’s rightful place as a viable Tec & Rec configuration. And who better to share that with you than Lamar Hires, Founder and owner of DiveRite. Lamar will come to us live via Webinar from Florida and share some of the history of Sidemount, dissect a sidemount system and rigging, talk about its future, and hopefully share some really cool video footage. Don’t miss this one.
