June Meeting Announcement PDF Print E-mail

Greetings All,

The June UASC meeting is scheduled for this Wednesday, June 24th.

This month UASC member Dean Nolan will be providing a short presentation on the George W. Morley. The Morley was a 193' wooden steamer that caught fire and stranded in 1897. I'm sorry that I can't confirm a featured speaker at this point as we're still waiting on the confirmation.

Tuesday of last week the UASC sponsored a CPR course for our members at the Chicago Maritime Museum taught by Sam Frank. Ten member got certified or re-certified in this critical skill. This is something that everyone should know so if you aren't currently certified look for an opportunity to get trained. The Red Cross usually offers training at very reasonable rates. The life you save may be someone you love.

UASC meetings take place the last Wednesday of each month; refreshment and chatter start around 6:30 pm and the meetings begin at 7:00 pm. The Meetings are held at the Chicago Maritime Museum located at 1200 West 35th Street, Suite OE5010, Chicago, IL 60609. Free parking is available adjacent to the facility. Use the entrance next to the loading dock on the north side of the building (same side you will park on). The door is at ground level and the museum is on the lower level down the stairway. As always, I hope to see you all at the meeting.

As always, I would love to see some potential members join us at a meeting; you know that you're welcome to attend.

Thanks,

Bob Rushman
UASC President

Bob and Claire Gadbois will be providing a presentation on the Seabird this month and there may also be another featured speaker although this is not confirmed. As we are now into the dive season we will also start making plans to conduct survey work.
