    BSAC Primary Donate Workshop

    This turned up in my FB feed this morning

    https://www.bsac.com/training/skill-...onate-workshop

    Seems to require the student to have done or be doing a twinset course.

    OMG

    What next? Ice skating is now officially taking place in Hades.
    We give £350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.

    Don't know why.

    In buddy checks I've said for years* the DV in my mouth is 'Our' air (gas) and the one I'm not using is 'MY' air (gas). Never been a problem. Say the same even when diving with a single.

    *certainly around the time I investigated Bill Mains words to fully understand his thinking.

    I guess certain people are no longer holding sway over BSAC teaching hog looping in general based on their fears of a very artificial situation.

    Lots of jungle pictures with Lanny and Claire in the instructor notes.
    Bought a house in Devon, drank cider from a lemon.

    I assume that Mike Rowley is now axeling and salchowing on Chris's Satanic rink.

    I spent a (lovely) week on the Maureen years ago and spent a lot of time arguing about it with Growley. He kept insisting that primary donate wasn't taught by GUE and that "grab it" was taught instead. My buddy and I were the only Guers on the trip and the rest were all from a BSAC club. The trip had been organised by a BSAC woman who was particularly strident about how primary donate was a killer.

    Neither of them would accept that (a) it was safe or (b) that it wasn't taught as primary grab. They knew, of course, despite having no experience of actually being taught by GUE, or seen any trained divers@ drills.
    Happy to be a woke* feminist SJ(K)W snowflake in a godless universe, no matter what some experts think. And Braun was a twat who's not missed. At all.

    * Had to add woke; couldn't resist.

    I still can’t work out why you need a course for this.

    Here have this reg I’m breathing as you know it’s a safe gas and I’ll pick up my second reg and breathe from that.
    That’s very kind of you. Thank you very much for stopping me drowning.

    Or am I missing something?

    Couldn’t agree more. It’s beyond me why it’s such a big deal and why bsac have dragged their feet for so long.

    Must be time for the 'switching to the pony' SDC to cover that moment when you ignored your gas plan and a working (for now) DV is replaced by a working (for longer) DV from a different bottle. A bit like taking an AS with no third party involved, so long as the bottle is full and turned it on

    Lots of scope for adding gas calculations that aren't required (because the pony is never part of the gas plan) and covering the numerous deployment options. For some folk it could even involve glue and a visit to godive .

    We're talking beeserk. It can only be a matter of time before the word "insurance".
