    If you live in the Chicago area, I will be giving a presentation on decompression theory July 18 for the Chicago Scuba Meetup. The goal of this presentation will be to give recreational divers a high level understanding about what is actually going on inside their bodies during all phases of a dive. The topics discussed in this presentation will help people make better decisions about what dive computers to buy, the usage of tables and ascent strategies.

    The CSM is a great group of divers and I encourage anyone to stop by the meeting and join the group.

    The details:

    Date: Monday July 18 at 7:00 PM
    Location: Caliente Bar and Grill (previously, Lalo's) 1960 N Clybourn Ave Chicago, IL
    Admission: Absolutely free!!!!

    Greetings Duane I very much understand what you are trying to address.
    So many Rec. divers and divers in general have no understanding of what their physiology is while diving.

    I hope your event is very well attended and I would love to join as well but have work commitments to take care of.
    Thank you.

    CamG Keep Diving....Keep Training....Keep Learning!
