For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting him, Justin started his Dive Master training with us in the fall/winter of 2014. He spent the spring and early summer helping with classes and training. Justin has already proven himself to be valuable addition to the BMD staff and we're excited and looking forward to his introducing new divers to the underwater world. Congratulations Justin!!!!

Diving is a gear dependent activity. There are so many equipment choices and configurations out there it sets your head to spinning. Admit it, you've seen divers at the dive site with their doubles, side mount or rebreathers and you've said to yourself, self I'd like to try that one day. Well the day is here, join us at the Hagerstown YMCA on February 27 from 4-6:30 to play with our toys. We'll have Full Face Mask, Side Mount, Back Mounted Doubles and Rebreathers for you to dive. Try one or try them all it's up to you. We'll have 6 Instructors on hand to explain the different configurations and their purposes. Besides testing the gear you'll learn what is required to take your diving to the next level.
So if you're looking for something different to do on a cold winter afternoon, put on some dive gear and jump in the pool.
Entry fee $10.00 :Full Face Mask, Side Mount and Doubles
Entry fee $50.00 for Rebreather, Full Face Mask, Side Mount and Doubles
RSVP to BMD@myactv.net by 24 February with the toys you'd like to dive.

With the arrival of our new Suunto Zoop Novo rental computers our Aeris XR1 NX computers have got to go. The XR1 NX is a full featured Nitrox computer that will serve you well as either a primary or back-up computer. Because these are rental computers they do not come with a factory warranty. So, what well do is provide our own. If the computer breaks for any reason, besides flooding, within one year of purchase we'll credit the purchase price towards the purchase of any new computer we carry.
