The 2022 edition of the Bluegrass Dive Club Kentucky Derby party is looking for a new host this year.  The past several years have been hosted by Alex Fassas at their home; but with scheduled renovations they will be unable to host in 2022.

The Derby party would be on Saturday, May 7th, 2022 from approximately 4:00PM EDT until after the Derby race 12, post time 6:57PM.  Guests will bring appetizers and snacks to share.  Non-alcoholic beverages provided by the club, guests are welcome to bring their own beverages as well.

Host should have television space for viewing the race by the guests.

Please reach out to Alex Fassas, club Webmaster if you would like to host or need more details about hosting via Contact Us | Bluegrass Dive Club, or email to webmaster@bluegrassdiveclub.com, or call at (859) 582-1600.

Don’t ask what this can club do for you, but what can you do for your Club.  If we have No Host, we have No Club Derby party.  

 

Join us via Zoom for our meeting and program.  Meeting is Tuesday, 4/12/2022 via ZOOM only.  Social time starts at 7:00PM, Business meeting and program at 7:30PM EDT.  Bring your own snacks and beverage.

We are hoping to have a program for our meeting on 4/12/2022 from Beth VanPelt, Store Manager of New Horizons/Diventure Dive Center, in Lexington, KY.  She will share what Diventures and our local dive center have going on.  

If our program from New Horizons/Diventure does not materialize our backup program is a professionally produced video of SCUBA Diving the Egypt Red Sea.

We are looking for suggestions for a location to host in-person club meetings in the future.  Host venue would need to be open until 9:00PM.  Beverages and some food would be a plus.  Send suggestions to Kris Harn, club Vice President via our Contact Us | Bluegrass Dive Club, or email to vicepresident@bluegrassdiveclub.com, or call her at (859) 333-6911.

The Bluegrass Dive Club’s annual Pig Roast, which was scheduled for Saturday, 9/11/2021 has been postponed.  This decision was made by our host, Mike and Sherry McCann, out of an abundance of caution due to the resurgence of the COVID-19 and its Delta variant infection rate.

If the current public health crisis passes, the Pig Roast may be held later this year, but after the swimming pool season has closed.
