Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. You have picked a great time to join up with SCD, because we are getting our best conditions of the year, as we do each Nov/Dec. So now you have to get out and dive with us soon. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions around Laguna Beach. "Fantastic, get out there." We dove Saturday at the Montage Resort, a place not really known for great viz and we had 30-35+ feet of viz and 1 footers for surf. Nearly every dive report I've read has said 30+ feet of viz at EVERY dive spot in Laguna. Places like Deadman's Reef should be 40+ feet. I haven't heard from Bijan lately, but he would be able to tell me the viz at Reef Point, but my guess is 30+ feet there too. Let me know Bijan.

Our plans are for TOMORROW, Wednesday AND Saturday. The weather forecast (which seems like the only thing that can screw things up right now), shows no rain at this time, so the great viz should continue. It is early in the week, but I am really positive about diving this week. So get your gear together and get ready to dive.

For those of you who live up near Montclair, I have arranged a "club discount" with SSA. If you wear your SCD hat into the store, you will get deals on air and gear. So thanks to Rusty for working with me. Because SCD has no "Club cards" we decided that the hat is the way to go.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
