Team Randy Discover Scuba 2003

Team Randy, a foundation which takes handicapped kids from Monmouth and Ocean Counties on day trips, teamed up with Underwater Discovery of Toms River, The Handicapped Scuba Assoc. (HSA) of NJ, and Christine Voigtlander from the Girl Scouts of Ocean County Troop 346 to provide them with an introduction to Scuba Diving on July 16th. Christine, who was chairman, volunteered for the event as part of her Gold Award Project, the equivalent of the Boy Scouts Eagle Scout Award. She coordinated all aspects of the event including soliciting donations from the Shop-Rite, Foodtown, and Stop n' Shop supermarkets of Jackson.

Each member of Team Randy received instructions and watched demonstrations on how to assemble and put on the equipment and was then escorted to the 9' deep Underwater Discovery pool for about 30 minutes of submerged diving under the watchful eyes of the instructors and buddies of HSA. After everyone had their turn and surfaced, a barbeque of hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon, and all the fixin's was held with about 45 people partaking. Certificates and gifts were given to each of the kids at the conclusion of the day.

All members of Team Randy had a terrific time with smiles everywhere to be found amongst the kids, counselors, instructors, and volunteers. Few of the kids thought they would ever do SCUBA and to see them cheer each other on was truly a joy.

The event was filmed by Aqua Rock Productions of New York and will be part of an upcoming documentary.

The HSA Training Center of New Jersey would like to thank Christine Voigtlander and the following volunteers:

Peter Boyko II - Helen Mulford & Family - Ray Ruffini & Family - Dr. James Epstein
Jeffrey Boyd Salgo - Erin & Courtney Lynn - Bob & Amy Coldreck - Doug Hayes
Bob, Mona, and Bo Daullary of Underwater Discovery Inc. of Toms River
Shop-Rite of Jackson - Stop N' Shop of Jackson, NJ - Foodtown of Jackson, NJ

Without there support this great event would not be possible.

Thank You !!!!!!
