NUS March Dive Trip 2015

[EDITED POST] Dear everyone, We would like to recall the previous post regarding the March Dive Trip (posted on 25th January 2015). The March Dive Trip will continue to proceed as planned from 20th to 22nd March 2015. However, there have been changes made to the dates of the theory and pool sessions due to unforeseen circumstances. For Open Water Divers, the theory sessions will now be combined and conducted in a single session on 14th February (Saturday) from 9am to 5pm. The pool session will be held on 15th February (Sunday) from 9am to 5pm. If required, we will be having a second pool session on 22nd February as well (TBC). Participants will only be required to attend a single pool session. As for Advanced Open Water Divers, the only change will be that the theory session will be held on 14th February from 9am to 12pm. The Refresher session for certified divers will also be held in the morning of 15th February, and will also be available on the morning of 22nd February (if the session is conducted). Leisure participants will not be affected by the changes stated above. We understand that these changes may affect your decision to register for the trip, and thus we have scheduled extra registration sessions for next week. The new dates are as follows: Registration dates: 29th Jan - 9am - 2pm; and 5th Feb & 6th Feb; 10am-5pm *Note: the registration session planned on 30th January has been cancelled. Furthermore, we will be willing to assist you with alternative theory dates if you're not able to make it on 14th February due to Valentine's Day commitments. Kindly contact us via email (nusscubadiving@gmail.com) or Facebook message, and we'll try to work out an alternative time with you. With regards to those who have already pre-registered on the e-survey form, we will be deleting all entries collected at this point of time. If you would still like to attend the trip, kindly contact us via email or Facebook message before 30th January, 2359hrs - so that you will not need to fill up the form again. A new poster with the updated information will be uploaded tomorrow (28th January). The club website (nusdiveclub.org) will also be amended in due course. On behalf of the NUS Dive Committee, I would like to sincerely apologize for the confusion and inconvenience caused. I hope to have you on board our March dive trip.
