Our Club meets the first Tuesday of each month ( check dates below) from September through June (July / August we're busy diving) at 7:30 PM. These meetings include guest speakers, slide and video presentations, and educational programs, in addition to regular club business.
Due to Covid 19, most of our 2020 meetings were held by Zoom. For the forseable future our 2021 meetings will also be via Zoom. When possible we will move back to our regular location in St Catharines, Ontario.
Meetings are open to all for both the business and presentation portions of the meeting.
For our October 5, 2021 meeting Raimund Krob will be our guest speaker. The topic will be "Diving & Immersion Pulmonary Edema".
From 2013 to 2019, Raimund Krob was the Maritime Archaeology Project (MAP) Leader and Diving Safety Officer with A.D.M.A.T. responsible for the successes of the Terceira Island Shipwreck MAP, the Tile Shipwreck MAP, the Wreck II Shipwreck MAP, and the Le Dragon Shipwreck MAP, all situated off the north shore of the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola.
He was the 2005 – 2009 Diving Safety Officer with (the late) Elaine Wyatt’s MAP team to test her hypothesis of seasonal variation in the rate of shipwreck deterioration in Lake Ontario.
Since 1990, Raimund has been the Chair of Save Ontario Shipwrecks Mooring Program, responsible for a team of members and affiliates deploying and maintaining moorings to protect, promote, and preserve Ontario’s historical shipwrecks. Most recently, he led the projects to deploy a 4 ton mooring for the shipwreck of the P.B. Locke at a depth of 30 metres, and a 2 ton mooring for the shipwreck of the Lyman Davis at a depth of 40 metres.

Diving & Immersion Pulmonary Edema has been noticed in scuba divers over the past two decades. A likely cause of the disorder is an excessive elevation of the pressure inblood vessels within the lung, causing leakage of plasma into the air spaces. Immersion pulmonary edema is not related to lung barotrauma or decompression sickness. Cold water and a history of high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disorders are risk factors.

- Hear the stories of three survivors.
- Learn how to recognize, respond to, and prevent Immersion Pulmonary Edema.
