M E E T I N G S

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 March 2, 2021 meeting Kevin Magee will be our guest speaker. The topic will be "The Mystery of the C.B. Lockwood".

Kevin Magee

Biograohy

Kevin Magee was certified for scuba in 1984, moved to Cleveland, Ohio, in 1993, and discovered shipwreck diving in the Great Lakes shortly afterwards.  He enthusiastically practices diving shipwrecks in the Lake Erie and the other Great Lakes.  Kevin is the co-founder and Deputy Director of the Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE), an organization that searches for shipwrecks in Lake Erie and has found more than 35 shipwrecks since its creation in 2001.

“The Mystery of the C.B. Lockwood”

At almost 300 feet long, the steamer C.B. Lockwood was one of the largest wooden ships to be lost in Lake Erie when it sank in October, 1902, off the Grand River, OH.  Its loss offers a harrowing account of a stormy night spent in a small yawl boat for the nine survivors, including the captain and his wife.  However, the real mystery is why - after all these years and many searches for the wreck - has it not been found?  The wreck was marked with a buoy and extensively surveyed by the U.S. government soon after it sank, and yet the wreck has not been located since divers started searching for this elusive wreck over 40 years ago.  The Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE) solves this mystery and reveals the final resting place of this shipwreck.
