Sport Diver - - Koh tao -

I am tak­ing some great me­mories with me, in­clud­ing for­ward-roll en­tries and a ‘21-bum sa­lute’ in the Cay­mans; swap­ping count­less scuba sto­ries in pubs and bars at So­ci­ety events, ‘Fests’ and shows; many, many awe­some dives (mighty Oriskany, you know who you are!); my in­tro­duc­tion to re­breather div­ing in Egypt; and, of course, monthly prods from your es­teemed Ed­i­tor, Mark Evans, re­mind­ing me that my over­due col­umn sub­mis­sions are hold­ing up pub­li­ca­tion yet again. Thanks for all the fun and friend­ship I have en­joyed through the So­ci­ety over the last 15 years or so, and I look for­ward to see­ing you at events in the fu­ture; in the mean­time, re­mem­ber the phrase ‘MYPADI’, and keep an eye open for de­vel­op­ments un­der that so­bri­quet…
