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.
[Edit - Following subsequent discussion, I can confirm that there are no swimmers sharing the pool at this event, and this event is NOT organised by the AMS, but is supported by the AMS
Monies contributed go to the hire of the fascilities, the amount indicated in the flyer is the maximum contribution- if there are sufficient attendees as in the last event the contribution will be significantly less. This is a 'not for profit event' This event is organised by www.diveintomodelsubmarines.co.uk ]
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
There is usually a tame scuba diver on hand to recover any boats that run
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-
I have attached a flyer to this email. This includes all the details for the
event, including address and my contact details. If you have a club
magazine, and you think this event would be of interest to your members,
please can you publish this flyer along with a few of the venue details I
have included in this email.
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.
I've also attached a couple of pictures from the last event which show what
the pool looks like. If you want any more details, or I have missed
something out, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
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
