Issue 1 December 2006
Welcome to the first issue of our newsletter.
We have decided to start this newsletter in the hope that it will be of interest to members who are unable to get to the pool/pub on a regular basis. We aim to keep you informed of what’s going on within your club, as well as inviting you to contribute anything you think might interest other members.

In November 2000 aged 49 after my daughter told me to “get a life” I
decided to try diving. I always liked the way Lloyd Bridges did a
backward roll entry off a rib on the telly in the 50’s. Underwater is an
escape to another world where you can get peace & quiet, with just you &
your thoughts. The rest of the world can wait until you surface.
Had difficulty in swimming 8 lengths of the baths until told how to swim by Roy Chambers.
Trained to Ocean Diver by Tony Lees. Passed May 2001. Passed Sports Diver 2002.
Passed Dive Leader November 2003. Passed Advanced October 2005.
Prefer diving Wrecks with old wrecks (Al,Phil & Clive).
Famous Quotes: The Delph? That’s easy, turn right at Morecombe!
If it flies it’s a bird, it it’s in the water it must be a fish!

This trip is usually a good laugh, not only do you get to do some really
good dives off Burg Island and the Louis Shied Wreck just of the coast,
you also get the chance to drive the boat. If you have done the boat
handlers course you will know what I mean. You get behind the wheel and
something happens to you,
you feel the need, the need for speed!!!
Back to earth, or under the water, there is a lot to see from cuttle fish to pipe and wrasse. These are just a few of species to be found in the gullies around the island. Then of course there’s the pub just up the road that servers good food and beer while you relax and have a chat.
NEXT TIME: THE FARNES TRIP.
Animal of the Month.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this months issue, and apologies for any mistakes we’ve missed.
Any further articles for next months edition would be appreciated, (any gossip, scandals, etc that’s printable) so let us know by 19th December
Hope you enjoyed this first issue, as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together during long hours of serious discussion - the nights of boozing and eating are a vicious rumour!!
The name "Axolotl" comes from the Aztec language, "Nahuatl". One of the most popular translations of the name connects the Axolotl to the god of deformations and death, Xolotl, while the most commonly accepted translation is "water-dog" (from "atl" for water, and "xolotl", which can also mean dog).
The Axolotl, along with some other amphibians, remains in its larval
form throughout its life. This means that it retains its gills and fins.
The Axolotl is carnivorous and has typical carnivore features, with the
main exception of the teeth. Its teeth are small stumps., which it uses
to grip it’s food, manoeuvring it into position before swallowing it
