How time flies!
Lets start with a review of what we have been up to. Back in April we had our yearly Underwater Easter Egg hunt. Despite terrible weather most of the underwater prizes were found and the kids enjoyed the land based treasure trail. During May the Open Water Swimming season really took off and the Nemes Nutters Wednesday night swim club was born! Its great to watch so many of you progress and compete in the various events this year. Well done to all our Channel Swimmers what a terrific achievement! To celebrate the Royal Jubilee weekend we had a very tasty Hog Roast and BBQ, thanks to all the staff who helped out and made this a real success. The Hog Roast was so tasty I am sure we can find an excuse to have another one next year! Throughout the year our Dover Channel dives have been a hit with new divers experiencing their first boat, wreck or drift dive and the more experienced divers loved the deeper wrecks. The Summer kids activity days were great fun, staff loved getting soaked on the kayaks 🙂 and its nice to see we have some really strong open water swimmers in the younger age groups, olympic stars of the future maybe… watch this space! In September our Project Aware clean up went well, we successful managed to remove lots of rubbish and raise more money for Project Aware, everyone seems to enjoy seeing what will come out of the lake. Well done everyone who helped on land or under the water. At the end of September we held our 1st Nemes Nutters Swim Gala and the response was amazing. Huge thanks to Giovanna our swimming coach for all the Free Wednesday night coaching sessions, the results were obvious when we saw how well everyone did at the Gala. You should all be very proud of yourselves. That brings us up to October, at the beginning of the month we had an awsome time playing with the seals in the Farne Islands. With 2 boats full of divers and a couple of non-divers we all experienced some seal interaction, they were very playful and cheeky. Great company, great food and lots of playful seals what more could you want… Brilliant 🙂
Photos of all the above events and activities are on our Facebook site (which gets updated regularly, unlike the blog, sorry must try harder!!!).
Looking forward we have our Halloween night dive this Wednesday 31st Oct and a little bird tells us there will be a firework display over the back of the lake at 8pm, last year this was excellent and well worth coming along to see. But the real fun will be on Saturday 3rd November when we have our Halloween Spooktacular, with lots of spooky things above and below the water, games, prizes for best carved pumkin, food and we will be open until 9pm, dont miss it… it will be a SCREAM!!!!
Tickets are now on sale for our Xmas party on 8th Dec with a Rock tribute act, tasty 3 course meal and disco. Nemes Xmas Party 2012
As always we dont stop planning or making improvements so there will be plenty more in store to keep you entertained.
Hope to see you soon.
