St. Lawrence Scuba Weekend, Saturday Night Party December 15, 2008

After a good day of diving the Keystorm and the Kinghorn, the next step was the Saturday Night Barbecue. This was the Labour Day Weekend of 2006, and my first dive trip to the St. Lawrence River. Unfortunately, there had been rain through most of the day, and the evening was worse, with a constant moderate rain throughout. The barbecue was a metal barrel cut longitudinally in two, and filled with charcoal. Brad and Dave always act as cooks, and had various types of sis kabobs, as well as lots of side dishes. The barbecue was large enough for all those around to get some heat, and so stay a little bit drier than would otherwise have been possible.

Despite the weather, the turnout was good, and with the food delayed until about 10pm, the evening went pretty late, although my wife and I bowed out around 11 and left the partying the younger club members. As it turns out I could have stayed late as all boats were cancelled the next day due to the bad weather.

After running around in the morning of Sunday, September 3rd, 2006 trying to find out if the second day of diving was a “go” or not, we ended up having breakfast at Caiger’s, then fending for ourselves for lunch with food and wine that we’d brought with us. We ended up visiting with some shore divers from the club doing training off the water’s edge in Brockville, and watching some tech divers do some odd-looking drills about 50 feet from shore. Noone could really figure out what they were up to, even those who were tech divers at the time.

That evening, we went to the Keystorm Pub (named after the wreck which we were diving on the previous day) in downtown Brockville  for dinner, which had reasonably good food, and then called it a night. We all hoped for better weather the next day.
