Dive-in to Summer June 11th and 12th 2011
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:34:31 PM »

As we are only a few weeks away from this event, it's timely to remind those interested. Thanks to the cooperation of St Albans Sub Aqua Club (http://www.sasac.co.uk), our gracious hosts, the 2011 Summer Dive-in, which will be the third Summer event, will take place for a WHOLE weekend on Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th June 2011, from 10am until 4pm both days. That's a full 12 hours of crystal clear water to sail your sub in, with the addition of a licensed bar and clubhouse plus free on-site parking.

Those of you who have attended previous events at this venue, know what a nice facility it is. For those who have yet to attend a Summer Dive-in, the St Albans venue is equipped with a 100ftx60ft swimming pool with a 9ft deep end, and we get exclusive use. That's large enough for all but the biggest of boats, but to give you an idea at the last event, two engel typhoons were happily simultaneously swimming around the pool.

This pool is filled during the Summer months where the sub aqua club use it for training, suit testing and social events. It has minimal chlorine content, and as our event is near the start of Summer, the water is as clear as gin.

There is usually a tame scuba diver on hand to recover any boats that run into trouble.

For those who may be coming some distance, you may wish to stay locally overnight. St Albans is a very nice place to stay, very historic, with beautiful parkland and excellent shopping facilities.

It is quick and simple to travel in to the heart of London via rail, and is close to two motorways (M1 and M25) so is easy to reach by car.

Here is the location on Google Maps-

You can read more about St Albans itself on wikipedia- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Albans

There is a small charge to attend of 10 for two days or 6 per day, with a nominal 1 for those spectating only. The price comes down if the numbers increase, as this is non-profit making event.  I appreciate advance payment where possible, as it makes life simpler for me on the day and allows me to budget. I can receive payment via personal cheque, or Paypal, but please don't send cash, as this can easily get lost in the post and also makes refunds difficult.

If you want any more details, or I have missed something out, please don't hesitate to get in touch via this site, facebook, the Dive-in website, or via my email address which is shown in the attached flyer.

So far numbers are suggesting this years event will be the best attended yet. Last years event attracted about twenty people with close to 30 boats on display.

Please make a note of our website http://www.diveintomodelsubmarines.co.uk which shows videos and pictures from past events, and also our facebook page, which is open to anyone which has similar content and also allows feedback from those who attend http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=133360626703083

Would recommend it to anyone interested, went last year and had a fantastic time.

I'll try to attend this time, but seeing as I've moved to Wales may be a little hard. Still, there may well be something a little huge coming....

Excellent, 30 subs - I think you should call it a Subfest! I dont think my sub will be ready in time, but I may make the trip as a spectator. Anyone bringing an Engel Lafayette along that I could have a look at?

There will be at least two, possibly three Lafayette's there.

I'm DEFINATELY bringing the Vanguard!! Realy looking forward to seeing how it performs in a pool  - emphasis on the "seeing" as my local lake is a tad murky and makes diveing a bit buttock clenching!
See you there,
Jim
