I graduated HS in 1982 in Boston, and went to St. Paul's College in Lawrenceville, Virginia and a dear college friend was from WV....

Everytime I see the world's deepest indoor pool NEMO I wonder what scuba diving is like...

Keep up the great work!

Errol, first thank you so much for your response to my call for support.  To answer your question regarding the urgency at this time to raise funds for my documentary.  I am raising "completion funds".  Up until now I have been the sole financier of my documentary.  To keep costs affordable, and to keep the project moving, I have worn all the hats associated with producing the project, including researcher, writer, producer, director, videographer, lighting, sound, and now I am sitting in the editors chair.  As I approach the completion of the project, as much as I would like to be able to continue doing everything myself, which would relieve me of having to ask for support, I am going to need the services of other professionals to have a complete product in my hand.  Those costs include color corrections and sound sweetening for the master, that requires another pair of editor eyes, and a sound tech, a studio.  Also DVD authoring and duplication, sound doctoring and mixing.  I could give you a complete laundry list, but hopefully this gives you an idea of the urgency.  Thank you so much for your interest.

 

Blessings Naimah

Errol...my wife is an alumnist of SU. We have many connections with SU as a result. I am an alumnist of USL, Lafayette,La.

Did you have any storm related issues as a result of recent storm activity on the eastern shore? Hope all is fine with you.

Be well,

DRV

Errol,

 

I live just west of Fort Lauderdale so the tri clubs here schedule open water swim sessions that work well.(I am a member of the Broward Barracuda's Tri Club)  But as in your situation lakes here also are used for training as well as sprint distance tri races.  So yes, to answer your question, a lake is fine for open water swimming as long as the water quality is acceptable and of course you might have to break out the wetsuits until the temperature comes up.  Hope that helps.

Errol thank you so much for your encouraging words.  I really appreciate the advice.  I will follow it and report my success.  And thank you for making me a friend.  Love your photographs, and your beautiful family.  Many blessings. ~ Naimah

Errol,

This sounds like an excellent Youth Event for young Divers! Will there be an Educational component to these week long camps? Keep me abreast of the program development, and be sure to post these sessions on the DAP SCUBA Group (Events). Thanks for your continued interest in the development of our Youth!
