I want to take a minute to thank each and everyone of you for being so LOYAL and PATIENT with us as we have evolved this year. It has been a roller coaster ride to say the least and at times a bit painful! :wacko: But it's had its fun too KNOWING WE ARE NOW EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE! :teeth:


A Quick Overview of the Last 12 Months:


1. We've suffered technical issues several times over the past year with our carrier...partially because we have grown sooooooooooo big and partially due to more demanding software needs required to smoothly run our site.
2. So now we've not only changed servers but we've changed carriers.
3. We've totally upgraded the forum software for the site and increased our stability 100% in just a week.
4. We added an online payment gateway earlier this year and now we've further automated that interface to allow for more vital information regarding your order/transaction to now be automatically emailed to you, our accountant, and our trip coordinators.
5. In a few weeks we expect to have our dive forms online and eventually integrated into your control panel via the site!
6. We've moved from Texas to South Carolina (and all that goes with selling a home, packing, moving and unpacking).
7. We've added a dedicated travel guru to book your individual or small group travel Sylvia aka cat fish (YES you can book you and your friends using our services and get it cheaper than you can book it yourself! Why? Because you have the buying clout of a few and we have the buying clout of over 6000!) This is EXACTLY why we hired someone to handle these booking for you! We know you can't travel with us all the time and we also know the trip of your dreams often is not scheduled by us when you want or can go. NO PROBLEM!!! Let us book your trip for you...you save money and we utilize our contracts...EVERYONE WINS!
8. We've done a number of local Happy Hours and local events and we certainly hope to do MORE!!
9. We've participated in 9 dive shows this year all over the country including our newest one in Colorado a week ago!
10. We've forged even better discounts with our partners which we pass onto our members!

But of all the amazing accomplishments we've had and hurdles in the past 12 months...the GREATEST IS HAVING OUR MEMBERS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT US, travel with us (or use our new travel services) and to hang out with the lifelong friends many have made because of SingleDivers.com.

And we would NOT be here if it weren't for the ardent and loyal support of our members. :respect: And we won't be here the rest of this year or next without your continued support, business and loyalty! You have all continued to show how much you love the site and the concept every time you take a trip with us, or help at a dive show, or go to a Happy Hour, or buy merchandise from us or now book your private travel with us via Sylvia aka cat fish (soon to be travel goddess or some really cool travel name!) And we certainly can't and haven't thanked you enough. :respect: :respect:

:thankyou: ALL... its been an amazing ride and I :pray: you all continue to enjoy the ride with us!

I am so encouraged by the pms and emails I've gotten from members saying they want SD to survive and thrive! That there would be no place for divers without buddies to go diving with other divers without buddies regardless of where they lived or skill level if it weren't for SD. Or the person that said they would have never made the amazing friends they now have if it weren't for SingleDivers.com! :)

Thank you! :thankyou:

Times are really tough now for all of us and even harder for a site like ours that only survives when YOU have discretionary income and then choose to spend it with us. That means we have to plan smarter trips with better values and of course plan further ahead and well keep growing when most companies are shrinking. That is no small feat but if our members remember what it was like before a group like this existed and they continue to support us in any way they can even if it is just telling someone about us...then we'll be fine! :respect:

Again thank you ALL for your support and your messages and your caring! Its makes all the hard work...WORTH IT!!! -Kamala
