I would like to invite anybody in the DFW area to come to the DUPS monthly meeting this Sunday. Below is info on our program, photo contest topic and, of course, time and location. Also, I'm sure there will be more information on the Marty Snyderman Seminar April 15. Everyone is welcome to visit our website at www.dups.org for more information.

March Contest topic- Creatures of the Muck
March Meeting Topic-
"Understanding Your Dive Boat" will be the topic of March's guest speaker, Lee Gano, of Island Divers in Denton. Before taking over the dive center in 2004, Lee earned his USCG 100-Ton Master Captain license and was a captain for several dive boat operations in California and Florida. Gano is extremely knowledgeable on having cameras on boats. He earned a degree in film production and worked many years in the Los Angeles area filming above and below the water for television shows like "Baywatch," "Aquanauts," "Dateline NBC," and Marty Snyderman's PBS shark documentary. A PADI and TDI Course Director, Lee contributed video and still images to many of PADI's training films and books. Gano is a native of the Dallas area and earned his instructor certification at Island Divers nearly 20 years ago.
