London Pride 2015
The sun was out and GLUG had a stall at Trafalgar square this year and, although small in number and stature (but HUGE in heart! :o)) members also took part in the Pride march. Thanks to all those who helped out and popped by to see us. Now let's start planning for 2016 to make a BIG GLUG SPLASH!!
Early Season Shake Down Dive and Rescue Refresher Day at Wraysbury - 21st March 2015
GLUG members braved the clear but 'tepid' (don't ask ... suffice to say we were NOWHERE near double temp ficgures!) water at Wraybury Dive Centre, Surrey to test kit on a early season dive, useful for those of us who had niggles with blown 'O' rings and torches that wouldn't play nicely ;o) Many thanks to Fiona and Martin for organising this and for their efforts with putting us through a rescue refresher, highlighting to all of us was how very important it is to have these skillks regularly practised otherwise (like anything in life!) they get mighty rusty! The weather behaved and great fun was had by all with members coming from wide and far to attend the day's activities, underwater critter spotting included crayfish and a rather spectacularly toothy pike. A special thank you to Matt and Tom for putting on a rather super post-dive day spread at their house, was just what we needed boys ;o) !!
Gay Sports Fair - 27th January 2015
Members of GLUG were in attendance at this year's Gay Sports Fair, which took place at the wonderful Kia Oval cricket ground, London on Tuesday 27th January. We had lots of interest with divers and divers-to-be popping by to visit our fabulously, colorful decorated stand. Looking forward to seeing new faces at our monthly meets and joining us on GLUG dive trips!
