We are fortunate to have a return visit from Nancy McGee, a diver of world renown who is a member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
The Explorers Club has recognized her as a Fellow for contributions to scientific knowledge in the field of geographical exploration, which include underwater filming in locations so remote that local natives have never before seen Western people. Known as Ms. Exosuit, AKA the Pachyderm Princess, she is the first female Exosuit pilot as well as a magazine centerfold (next to a 3000 lb. swimming elephant). Nancy has also served as the long-time business manager for Stan Waterman, the legendary underwater filmmaker.
She will be presenting a tribute to Stan Waterman, who passed away at the age of 100 on August 10. Stan, a diving icon, was an American cinematographer and underwater film producer who won 5 Emmy awards. He completed thousands of dives but was never certified.
Stan was an invited guest of the Dillos when he spoke at a special meeting for the DFW dive community at a hotel meeting room about 20 years ago.
You will not want to miss this program.
Our meeting begins at 7 p.m. If your schedule permits, please come for the social/dinner hour around 6 p.m.
Bring some cash for the raffle, which offers fun, mostly useful items!
