    What's Does Florida S.C.R.U.B. Stand For?

    As most of you that are regulars on Rebreather World may already know, I'm a member of the Florida S.C.R.U.B.'s Group which actively organizes dives in South Florida. I'm also one of several members who is pretty active within the group and I like to post trip reports with lots of pictures so the whole Rebreather World diving community can share in the wonderful warm water diving experience we're so fortunate to have here in South Florida.

    Recently, while on a local dive trip in the Keys, I had a few divers come up to me and ask me what the "S.C.R.U.B." in Florida S.C.R.U.B.'s represented. You would think that, as a pretty active member, I would know. However, even though in past, I have seen what it actually represented, for the life of me, I didn't remember what it meant!

    Well, I figured I'd look it up and post in here online, because if I could not remember it, I suspect that there are many other divers who either can't remember either or never knew in the first place.

    Fortunately, our fearless leader, Howard (A.K.A. ScubaDadMiami) was kind enough to post a permanent sticky containing the groups mission statement, which yes, includes the official meaning for the abbreviation "S.C.R.U.B."

    http://www.rebreatherworld.com/showthread.php?t=12146

    For the record, here's what it officially stands for:

    South Coast Rebreather Underwater Bounders

    BTW, I wrote it in red, because so many of our member use Optimas, which happen to be adorned in red, that I felt it would be appropriate. Plus, for those of you that have actually recently dove with me, you know I kind of have a thing for red equipment!:D
