Just recently came back from diving in Morehead City North Carolina for "Wreckfest" sponserd by the Nubians Divers of Charlotte, NC. Drove down with follow AVSC member Joel Brisco and Reggie Callander.
Due to the weather conditions we could not dive the Spar Wreck or the U-boat 352 wreck. However, the dives that we did do was great.
Hope to return next year.

Hey Folks,

I'm trying to round up a few folks to meet me down in Athens, Tennessee at Loch Low Minn to do some scuba diving next Saturday May 23 around 9 am. I'm hoping a few folks from my dive club will join me but I'd love to meet some of you too. So if you're in the area come on down and LET'S DIVE!

Greetings: Starting next week April 20-May 2 , 40 members of the National Association of Black SCUBA Divers ,will converge on Florida City Fl . We are taking a course in underwater archeology . A course developed by NABS. in conjunction with the National Park Service. Why are we learning these new skills?
There are slave ships in the Florida Keys area and around the world and when they are found, we want to be the first ones to dive and document this important piece of history and also pay homage to our enslaved African Brother and Sisters who came over during the Middle Passage.. I will keep you up dated you on our progress . Ken Stewart
