WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Hi Nautili,

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are looking for a few more members to help out on the committee. The club is run by volunteers and We need your help to run the club well.

Can’t commit to the whole year? No worries

Sometimes we just need a couple extra hands for certain events. Help us plan an event, help us plan a trip (maybe somewhere you want to go 😉 ) or help us cook the BBQ on occasion, take out the chairs and rubbish or pick up Pizza’s for the Club Meetings.  

At the moment we have Committee members doing multiple roles and they would really appreciate a hand. We also have long term committee members who’d like to step down. They have put a lot of work in over the years to simplify processes so stepping into their role would be quite easy. 

Available Roles / Assistant Roles:

  • Webmaster (keep our website up to date, assist committee members with technological aspects of their role)
  • General Committee Members (help out with an Event coming up, help out with monthly BBQ, restock Beer, offer up ideas and insights to help us improve the club)

Please find the list of role descriptions here

If you can help us please email me secretary@nautilus-scuba.net or Jannemieke president@nautilus-scuba.net for more info!

The committee meets once a month on second Wednesday of each month. 

Thank you, we look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

Kirrily

Nautilus Secretary 19/20

Nautilus Xmas Dive and ‘After Party’

Ho ho ho … blah blah blah … it’s Almost Christmas time !!

Yes, with the Festive season fast approaching it’s time again to open your calendar and place THIS Date in for the combined Special Xmas Dive Event (day-time) and After Party (night-time):

Saturday December 7th, 2019

Special Dive Details:

The day will run similar to a normal monthly club dive except we have the ability to have the entire boat to ourselves (pending members booking all places) and with two (2) dives only.  There is a MAXIMUM of Fifty (50) Divers and an additional Ten (10) snorkellers – perfect for non-diving partners who wish to attend with you. Pricing is also set the same as club event days, so 35% off the RRP of diving and snorkelling. 

There is a Seven (7) day cancellation policy on the event so that means there is no refund if you cancel one week out from the event.  The hold on the boat (ie exclusive use) also expires 7 days out so after 30/11/2019 any available places will be offered to the public.  This means BOOK EARLY so we secure the boat as a Nautilus Xmas Club Dive special event and buddy with your favorite club member.

Taking all this into account, the following applies:

Details:
Date: Saturday 7th December
Check In: 07:40 at the boat (end of A Finger on the Left side, Cairns Marlin Marina)
Departs: 08:00 sharp !

Costs:
[Special members only rates, NOT for publication – please refer to your member email or contact the club]

Additionals:
Limited Nitrox is also available to the FIRST FIVE (5) divers only who request it AT THE TIME OF BOOKING.
Get in super quick Nitrox Divers!

Booking:
Book direct with Tusa Reservations ON THE PHONE ONLY.   You MUST be a current financial member and quote your membership card number when booking to obtain the Special members only rates.  Membership Card must also be shown when checking in on the day.
Your place is secured with full payment.

On the day:
Arrive at 07:30 to check in directly on the boat (T6) at the marina, A Finger as the boat departs 08:00 sharp.
Have your club and cert cards with you on the boat AS YOU WILL NEED THEM, both are critical.

Note:  
Any other questions about the Diving please call either Tusa Dive on Ph. 07 4047 9100, or send an email to DiveCoordinator@nautilus-scuba.net (allow 48 hours reply time) or ask at an upcoming club meeting.

‘After Party’ Details:

The after-party is booked at Wharf One Cafe, located at the Southern end of the marina, past The Hilton and not quite as far as Hemingway’s Brewery, CAIRNS.

This is the first time the club have used this beautiful venue and what a perfect match after a day diving.  Of course, as a club member, you are just as welcome to come along even if you cannot make the Special Dive Event.  For those the have not been to Wharf One cafe before (although I imagine unlikely unless you are new to Cairns), the venue is right on the wharf (as the name suggests) with a truly unbeatable view over Trinity Bay and the Trinity Forest Reserve on the opposite bank.  We may even be in time to witness the thousands of bats that cross the bay in their nightly flight into the forest.

All the specific details will be in the next email as finishing touches are being made (times, menu choices, etc).
What you need to do now is SAVE THIS DATE in your calendar:

Saturday December 7th, 2019


As with previous years, the party will commence shortly after the Diving Event concludes but enough time to sto your gear and change into your ‘party frock’ and Dancing shoes.

Leaked Secret: 
Shhhhhh … but a little Bat told me that there is likely to be LIVE music this year, so definitely sounds to enjoy dinner by and then wiggle ya butt on the dance floor (or just chill and chat with dive buddies)!

This event is a great opportunity for all our members, friends and family to meet and mingle, get to know your fellow dive enthusiasts and spread some Christmas cheer. 

There will be a selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food available, but if you have any other dietary requirements, make sure to let us know when bookings open (not just yet for the Party – but open NOW for the Diving – see above)


More Details Soon!
