June 2020

MUD Club

Club meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 16, 2020 is CANCELLED. There is NO meeting tonight at Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI

It has been suggested that interested members attend “Tankful Tuesdays” dive as an alternate to the monthly meeting. Stay tuned to the club Facebook page for details.

Since we are for the most part still in a “state of quarantine” local diving activities continues to be a bit skimpy. Get wet when & if you can!

Yes, this has been posted before but is being mentioned again due to lingering questions of whether divers that get COVID-19, no matter how slight, can return to diving.  Keep checking with the Divers Alert Network (DAN) for additional updates. https://www.diversalertnetwork.org/

And do not forget to tune into “ScubaObsessed” the longest running Scuba related pod cast in the USA and hosted by the Mud Clubs own Darrin Jillison. Check him out on most Thursday evenings and join in the chat room at around 9:30.   https://www.facebook.com/scubaobsessed/

Diving Notes:

St. Joseph River – Niles:  High, fast and muddy at the Riverfront Park & Marmont dive entry points. Very risky unless VERY experienced and in good physical shape.

St. Joseph River – St. Joseph/ Benton Harbor: Same conditions as above but has been dove several times this month by experienced divers and then only  close to the shore line and around the docks. Visibility at high noon with a u/w light was 4 inches (maybe!).

There is diving going on and these lakes have been dove.

Ross Township Park – Gull Lake dove June 14

Big Paw Paw Lake – Forest Beach – dove June 9 (Thankful Tuesday)

Sherman Lake (Augusta, MI) – dove June 3

Havana Wreck is buoyed & dove – May – Thanks Amie & Kevin 😊

July 18, 2020: 2nd Annual Marquette Lower Harbor Underwater Cleanup – public – ·9:00- 1:00 PM,Lower Harbor Park,  200 Lakeshore Blvd, Marquette, Michigan..  Hosted by Diver Don Scuba

With all of this in mind, I thought you might continue to enjoy a look into the past of the Muddies from yesteryear.

Hope you enjoy the Muddy News from June 21, 1978

REMEMBER: Anyone can call off a dive at any time. It is always OK to say “No”
