Previous month Next month

May BSoUP meeting

If you can make the meeting, please get your drinks at the bar in time to start promptly 8.00 p.m.

This month we present a VERY special event. Leaping in a surprisingly sprightly manner to the front of the room will be our two greatly esteemed founding members - Colin Doeg and Peter Scoones, read on below. First, a splash-in build-up.

Preparation and planning for the annual BSOUP Splash_In Competition by Charles Erb

Running successfully for over 30 years, this year our annual splash-in competition is more exciting than ever as it has now evolved into the 'British Splash-in Championship' with a fantastic array of prizes and sponsorship - see for more details. This ever popular and hugely enjoyable weekend has become a favourite with BSoUP member Charles Erb and his club, the Worcester BSAC. Charles will describe how he and his friends plan and prepare for the event.

Charles has been interested in photography since childhood and diving for 20 years. Converting to digital in 2003, he now uses a housed Nikon D200 system and considers any dive without a camera to be a wasted opportunity. Like many of us I am sure, he is unable to dive as much as he would like, he is however a very experienced UK diver and splash-in veteran, I am sure his talk will be invaluable to anyone planning to join us for this year's excellent weekend in Devon.

Focus On competition - People

All details and online entry form are on the website

Main event - Dive magazine's British Underwater Image festival  by Colin Doeg and Peter Scoones

Still regularly attending meetings after creating BSoUP an incredible 40 years ago, our two founders will provide a double act this month. Together, these two chaps possess such an incredible wealth of experience in underwater photography it is difficult to imagine just how far their knowledge reaches. Here's a secret tip - ply either of these great men with a moderate glass of good red wine and they will be more than happy to share any amount of that huge experience with you. Peter and Colin will be showcasing the winning entries in DIVE magazine's British Underwater Image Festival including both the video and print categories, which attracted more entries this year than previously.

If you can be anywhere near South Kensington on Wednesday night, can you resist such a show?
