Meetings are generally held the first Monday of each month. They are held at the Bayland Community Center, 6400 Bissonnet Street (near Hillcroft), Houston, Texas. The doors open a little before 7:00 PM and the program goes from 7:00 to about 9:00 PM.
Every month we have a speaker and/or film presenter, news from HUPS divemasters and officers on trips and other events, and a monthly photo contest based on selected subjects -- slide and new digital photo contest rules are posted on the contest page of this web site.

Annual End of Year Contests
Immediately after every meeting a group of long time members have made it a tradition to grab a bite to eat at Jax Grill on 6510 S Rice Ave, Bellaire. We welcome all club members and their guests to come and join us and sit down in a relaxed enviornment to talk about recent trips, equipment, photographic methods and basically anything else that comes up for discussion. Its a great way to get to know members and to get more than 2 minutes of their time at any meeting.
