A message from our President
Posted by Paul Pacey on 17 September 2017
I am delighted to be the incoming President for 2017/18 and I thank you for the opportunity and privilege you have given me to serve the club.
I truly believe that we have the greatest dive club in Sydney, if not anywhere in the world(!), and I am really looking forward to the year ahead.

For members who don't know me, I'm originally from Ireland but have lived in Sydney for 9 years.
I have been diving since 2000 after doing a "try dive" in Okinawa, Japan.
I did my diver training up to PADI divemaster level in Ireland (after returning from Japan), but have done my deep/tec diver training (TDI) in Sydney.
I was Treasurer of the club from 2014 to 2016 and the club has always been very special to me, not least because of the beautiful friends I've made, but also because I'm grateful to have the support and friendship of some of the most experienced divers in Sydney.
I'm delighted to have the opportunity to give back to the club in any way that I can.
Thank you to everyone who came to the AGM last Tuesday night, it shows that you care about our club and are willing to make every possible effort when needed to ensure that it continues to be successful.
Our club has always prided itself on being independent of any dive shop or dive organisation and on being a friendly social club where everyone is welcome. Whether you've been diving for 40 years or are just starting out, whether you're a rebreather diver, wreck diver, cave diver, side mount diver, photography, nudibranch or shark obsessed or you just like to relax underwater, you are welcome in St George Scuba Club and so are your friends and family. I hope that we will all continue to hold those values dear to us.
I would like to thank the new Committee for accepting their roles and hope that they will enjoy the coming year:
Vice President: Peter Flockart
Secretary: Shelley Breuseker
Treasurer: Roney Rodrigues
Assistant Secretary/Treasurer: Nancy Scoleri
Webmaster/Membership Enquiries: Paul Pacey
Newsletter Editor: Greg Blackburne
I would also like to say a special thank you to the outgoing Committee for all their efforts over the last year.
Looking forward to seeing you at an event or diving soon.
