Sounds exciting, we probably would not do a story on this but something to keep in mind.

Yes, I have already contacted DUI and they will allow me to use their suits in teaching the Dry Suit course there.

Errol, I am interested in organizing a meet-up at SU homecoming this year. I'' talk with Fuzzy and get him in on the event. The summer is passing fast. Went to NY to the US Open Golf tournament last month. Had a great time. When I hear from Fuzzy I email you right away.

I'd love to see this stroke. I was back in the water this past weekend at Lynnhaven dive. I hope to get to the Lake later this summer.

Thanks for the assistance this week! I need to step my scuba game up, I’m looking forward to your Lake Rawlings event this summer. To help sharpen my scuba skills.

Thanks for the feedback Errol. We will take it into account for the next round of featured members. My brother and I did use a similar approach at Pool's Day this past weekend.

Thanks Errol,
Leslie has really been a driving force behind this event! We thank you for all your support and I know the kids both enjoyed and learned something at the scuba station.

Errol, Its good to hear from you. I don't know Cullen Jones personally. But the brother did a fine job at the Olympics. I'm still working at TSU and planning retirement probably within the next year or so. My class load has been reduced such that I'm semi-retired now. Fuzzy (Louis Benjamine) visited me in Houston and we took in the Southern Prairie View Football game in October. We also visited Coach Jones at his home here in Houston. Coach has had some major health problems but seems to be recovering nicely. Fuzzy is retired and spends the majority of his time fishing. The Harris County Aquatic Program which I helped to co- found with Johnnie Means and Comissioner El Franco Lee has completed a new swimming facility which will have opening cemeronies on March 26th. The pool will be named the Johnnie Means Swimming Pool. I just completed my second book entitled "Shimmy To Gold: Kelley's Story". It is a good read especially for children interested in sports. I'll send you a flyer about the book. Kelley is no longer involved in competitive swimming but teacher swimming and is involved in coaching a senior team in California. Let's keep in touch. Have you good talked to Briggs lately or any of the other guys that swim with us at Southern?
Maybe we should plan to get together for a reunion at Southern during the football season i.e. homecoming? Let me know if you are interested.

It's good to hear from you Mr. D. I'm very interested in participating.
I've been a little land-locked in recent couple year but plan on changing that soon.

That would be great, thanks for the invite. I'm looking at May or June for the open water portion of the class.

Errol: The Atlantic Rangers presented your program at our monthly meeting. I have a previous commitment. I'll try to make another of your programs.

Yes, I'm going to take the course in the next month or so and I am looking for a location for open water.
