Fwd: Salt Rock Spearfishing Club

Hey guys,
There has been a bit of a hold up with the artwork on the jackets. ..Thats the bad news!
But it does mean that for those of you have been slow off the mark still have a chance.
All the jacket orders will be going in this week so please get back to me, and pay the cash into the account if you are keen. (details in previous mail below)
The design came out pretty good and we are even considering doing shirts as well.
Any way thats all for now.
C ya

Hey guys,

Its been a bit of a slow start to the year, it seems if I have not been diving I have been working very little gets done in between.
I have had a bunch of guys all going ..."How much are subs this year"

Well after careful consideration and much calculating the inflation rat taking into consideration the fuel price, Zuma's new wife, the cost of wine gums and the lack of electricity. I have no option but to adjust the membership subs for 2008.

Now hold onto your socks........ the subs have more than doubled!!!

Ouch you might say!!!

Bloody right...... stay with me just for a moment ....pleaz

Its not all doom and gloom.........

You can get your club fees for free!

Here is how you do it!

Buy one of the new Salty Divers weather jackets (made by Senqu and embroidered with the Salty Divers logo) For R420 ........ This is well below normal retail price!!!!!

And you can get your club fees for free!

So for R420 South African Rands you get.....
  • Salty Divers Weather Jacket ...will last for years!!!
  • Free Salty Divers membership
  • Free kick in the pants
  • Get to answer people who ask you about your shaweeet jacket!!!! ...this is the big one!!
Now there are probably some of you that are going "Gee I dont have that kinda loot"
Dont fret my friend ..... You can go for the usual R200 and get a Salt Divers T-shirt ..... last years model.

I want to nail this down as soon as possible so please respond as quick as.....

You will need to send me confirmation of what size beast you are ...... in other words what size jacket for those who dont speak moron.  :-)

And pay your subs:

Salty Divers Club Meet


Its that time again ...gee it came upon me and I almost forgot!!! Mich actually reminded me, I suppose thats what happens when you stuck in the work mode.

I have been a bit out of touch with the diving as I have been put on the 'bench' with sinus and now flu. I have been trying to wash out the snot in some quality barrels that have been coming through ....... not sure its helping tho ... feel kinda kuk!!

Anyway dive club meet is all good for Friday and eventho the sea is probably going to be poo .... it will be good weather for a 'Dop en Chop'

Every one is asking about the jackets ... I will hopefully have a strike off of the logo for the meet ...hold thumbs :-)

Anyway looking forward to a great time,
