May 6th Meeting

We had a wonderful meeting last night. It was a pot luck, with a special presentation by David Hall on Blue Heron Bridge. He showed a Blu-Ray video he made and provided lots of good information. You can check out David’s facebook page also by searching for Underwater Imaging. We were glad to have him, and also happy to meet his new fiancé. Congrats!! We had another new face at the meeting as well, Andrew. Thanks for coming out. I know we have several people now who would like to take a trip to Florida, so we will discuss that more and hopefully put something together. Thank you everyone for the good food last night also!!

Our planning meeting to discuss upcoming events will be held May 20th at Old Chicago Pizza in Merrillville -6:30pm. Everyone welcome, please come and share your ideas. -Michele
