It Happened To Me: DIVE would like to hear YOUR stories
One of the most popular features of DIVE Magazine over the years has been the ‘It Happened to Me’ series. It’s one of our favourites also – we’ve been running it since 1995.
We’d like to hear more from our readers and in return, we’ll give you £25 towards your next dive vacation – that’s a great night out in some locations, with spare change for the taxi ride home!
What we’d like to read about is interesting or unusual experiences from your own diving life. That could range from having to deal with a serious incident, like the time Mike Follows had to assist an out of air buddy, or an experience to learn from, like the time Simon Read had his mask knocked off unexpectedly underwater.
It could be purely comical, as Kevin Donoghue recounted in his tale about finding a spider in his mask – halfway through a dive!
If you’d like to have a go then why not take a chance and send us something, as Mike Laird did just last week when he wrote to tell us about the first time he had to deal with a panicked diver during his Divemaster training.
Whatever you write should be around 800 words long and if you have some pictures then even better. If you want to send us a mugshot to go with it then that’s also great, and we’ll accept them in full scuba gear with a mask if that makes you feel better!
