Newsletter - November 2002

Greetings from the President.
The committee hopes that as many members as possible will be able to attend the Shell Auction in Auckland on Nov. 10th. At our last meeting Tony and Jenny Enderby spoke about the preparation for their new book 'Diving NZ for the Lonely Planet'. This book features a magnificent selection of their underwater photographs and will be available in book stores soon.

The field trip to Little Barrier Is was a huge success. More about this in the next newsletter.
