From My Bar, Rick Voight will host a virtual community of divers as they share the Cayman experience on Facebook at www.facebook.com/vivid-pix-fix. He and Snyderman invite all local divers and friends to come out, share a drink, and see what is happening in underwater photography.

“Divers are a world-wide community, and more and more people are getting involved in underwater photography because of how easy it has become,” states Voight. “We’re here to be a part of this community, to have fun sharing these pictures and to help worthwhile causes like the Cayman Magic Reef Recovery.”

    This seems to be the only way to comment on your “Notoriety” article in the Feb. 2016 issue of DT magazine. Oh, Marty, I know you would do anything to promote diving, learning about sealife and more. It has been my passion since certification in 1976. I have come across some of the people/instructors you mentioned and, based on my interactions with them do not consider them worthy of you admiration. E.g., Erin O’neill walking up to me, a complete stranger resting between dives at Pt. Dume, asking if I had a spare weight belt to lend her. She and her buddy Morgan were conducting what appeared to be an rudimentary SCUBA class. When I became a Los Angeles County Scuba Instructor in 1981(UICC 29), I learned to be PREPARED. She ,et al, were not. My experiences in the Caribbean exposed me to other yahoos in the industry(including Ron Kipp, my favorite example since an article written about him conducting his first class at Georgetown pointed out how he did not know where he was leading his class on a particular dive. There is more about his ethics I experienced first hand). I could go on to others, braggarts in every sense of the word, with no substance. The truly majestic figures formed this sporting activity, among them Glen Egstrom, Jon Hardy, the founders of Scubapro, Dave Woodard, Don Morrison, Uncle Jacque and his crew, and too many more to publish here. Oh, and you with your wonderful articles about your diving experiences. THANK YOU.
