Mince pie dive

19 December 2018, 10:00 - 15:00

It’s that time of year again! Time to gather at Stoney Cove for the annual festive dip. We can have a dive, eat some festive fodder, have another dive if thawed out sufficiently, then repair to Nemo’s for a Hot Toddy or similar.

Sally will bring mince pies for all. Please feel free to bring more Christmas comestibles to share about.

There are a few conditions:

  • It will be very cold. The water temperature will be about 8 degrees, so if you haven’t been in Stoney before this won’t be the time to start and if you haven’t been UK diving since the Summer you should think seriously before saying yes. However, everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the “ambience” and the mince pies even if you don’t dive.
  • Remember that we must not eat our own grub at the café or in Nemo’s or we will be thrown out. AGAIN!!
  • Please let Sally know if you intend to come so that she can work out a rough plan of buddy pairs and also know what quantity of mince pies to bring.

Meet by 10:00am to be ready to get in the water at 10:30am.
