On Sunday, August 9, seven Traer residents participated in "Discover Scuba" at the Traer Municipal Swimming Pool. Three adults and four children "geared up" and "splashed in" to learn the basics of using self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (s.c.u.b.a.).
Instructor Jeff Backes and Divemaster Mike Barrett from Scuba Too in Cedar Falls arrived with all the gear (and knowledge) necessary for the eager divers to get started discovering and enjoying scuba.
Despite a brief lull to await a passing thunderstorms, the time in the water was a couple of hours.
