Tuesday Nov 13th Marcie Bilinski and Vic Mastone will present slides and discuss the Minot Light Project and the MA Exempt Shipwreck List.

Marcie Bilinski first started diving in the early 70's and currently logs more than 200 dives annually in the waters of Massachusetts and caves of Mexico. Marcie has served on the BUAR as a sport diving representative since 2002 and is a true shipwreck enthusiast.


Victor Mastone is the Director and Chief Archaeologist of the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources (BUAR). Vic joined the BUAR as its first staff archaeologist in 1987. BUAR was established in 1973 as the sole trustee of the Commonwealth's underwater heritage, promoting and protecting the public's interests in these resources for recreational, economic, environmental, and historical purposes.

Every meeting also features a raffle of various prizes ranging from dive gear to DVDs, antiques, or just about anything else. Tickets are cheap and prizes worthwhile.

Members start gathering in the bar around 6:30pm to socialize and grab a snack, and the actual meeting starts promptly at 7:30pm. During the meetings we will quickly go through the club business, followed by Dive Talk and then a short break. The break is immediately followed by the speaker presentation.
