Home of the Free - Because of the Brave
Safety Divers Needed
Saturday June 10 7-11am
It will soon be time for the Owensboro YMCA annual triathlon. We have provided our support for this event for each year that it has been offered to the superb athletes in our area. Each year we ask for volunteers to come out and help us ensure that all the swimmers can have the best, safest experience possible during the swim portion of the race.
Please let us know if you are interested, we appreciate your help and in addition to the T-Shirt provided by the Triathlon, Blue Meridian will pop for your breakfast that morning. This is all volunteer but we know your time is precious and we want you to know we appreciate you being there to help.
Sometimes your life gives you a moment of pause and you have the time to reflect on what is important and what isn’t. So we want to take some time to reflect on the “what is important” over the next few weeks. So first on my list was Mermet Springs, a quality quarry dedicated to customer service. Second on the list was my staff, I am truly blessed to have this team working for Blue Meridian.
Third on my list is this career. How many people get to do everyday something that they love. Not many. Scuba was not my first career path, it came along later. My original career path was a Computer programmer. Yes….I was a nerd! It seems so funny now to see everything that computers control and do for us each day because when I started, we had cassette tapes and pixel manipulation to impress those watching. Yes, we have come a long way baby!! My final position in the computer field was as a database admin, using an Oracle database in a local mfg. company, that’s a world away from saltwater and sting rays!
All through that career, I was a weekend Scuba warrior and then a weekend Scuba Divemaster and then a weekend Scuba Instructor and I loved it more and more each day. Life throws a curveball sometimes and we don’t always see what’s coming but my career in the computer industry quickly fell to the wayside when I had the opportunity to be a Scuba Instructor/Dive Store owner full time. I’m in Kentucky and I get to teach scuba… all the time!! I know…..it’s awesome!!
I wake up everyday and wonder who will be the next person that we introduce to scuba? Who will be the next one to receive their certification and go on to maybe do great things in this industry? Who will be the next young person to walk through the door and ask if we can help them become a marine biologist? What an honor to be the one that gets to share the excitement, exhilaration and maybe a few butterflies the first time a new diver goes underwater and stays for 10 minutes! 30 years ago I would have laughed if you told me that I would retire as a scuba instructor. Now I can’t imagine that I ever even considered anything else.
Thank you for supporting Blue Meridian Dive Center all these years. It is you, our customers and friends that make this adventure exciting everyday. Here’s to a long journey together, with new adventures at every turn and lasting friendships that make life worth living!!

Want to Discover Scuba??
We offer a free scuba tryout session called a Discover Scuba. We can let you try scuba diving before you make the big commitment of the certification class. We highly recommend a Discover to anyone who is not quite sure that diving is for them. We need about 1 hour of your time, we provide all the equipment you need, there is a little bit of paperwork but best of all it’s FREE!! So, what are you waiting for, call us and set up your appointment to try scuba diving. We think you’ll love it as much as we do!!!
