Divin' and BBQin'

What better thing to do than dive, eat, then dive some more! Wannabe's get a chance to complete an intro Discover Scuba by giving you something REALLY cool to do .... like breathe underwater... FOR FREE! ($50 Value). Dormant divers get a chance to hop back in the water for a Refresher course at a reduced group rate of $60 ($85 Value). Experienced divers get a chance to do what they do best.... grab a buddy and DIVE!

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE FOR THE DISCOVER SCUBA AND THE REFRESHERS. Send me an email to secure your slot!

This will be an excellent opportunity to get connected with other divers and expand your dive buddy network. Those who already have dive buddies will meet new ones, and we will help those who need a dive buddy, find some.

Please feel free to invite any family/friends who may be interested in this event. Even if they have no interest in diving and just want to sit in the water and hang around a bunch of really cool people, then this is the place to be.

If anyone is interested in carpooling or caravanning to the lake, let me know and I will help coordinate matching up drivers and/or passengers. Passengers, please be conscious of fuel costs and offer to pitch in a few bucks for fuel.

We will cook beef and chicken fajitas, served with tortillas. A $5 per person donation is requested to cover some of our costs and may be paid at the event. A donation jar will be setup to collect your cash, gold and diamonds. :-). Please feel free to bring a side dish or snacks to share with others.

Need to rent some gear? Our sponsor SA Scuba Shack can hook you up. Stop by the shop to select and rent your gear. Best selection is always available to the early birds, usually the day before. Must have minimum of Open Water Certification to rent gear.

Bring your bathing suits, sun screen, towels, lawn chairs, canopy, tarps or tents. For those who have their own gear, PLEASE ensure your gear is up to service... SAFETY is critical!!

PLEASE RSVP to this event so we can best estimate on food by 5/22. Additionally, we will need to add your name to the list of attendees which will be provided to the park. This will save you money from having to pay the $12/car park fee at the entrance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please me an email through this MeetUp site. I am VERY excited and hope to see everyone there!

    Loyda,
    What's the total cost if I use your equipment and take the refresher course?

    May 22, 2014

    • Loyda

      Refresher is discounted from $85 to $60 and includes air cylinder. If you are short on any equipment, there are rentals available. I have provided some of the pricing in your comment above. Let me know if you have any other questions. :-)

      May 22, 2014

  • Bob B.

    What's the cost to those without equipment?

    May 22, 2014

    • Loyda

      Depends on what you need to rent. Rental pricing per day is BCD - $13, $Reg w/ Gauges & Octo - $15, Air Cylinder - $13, Wetsuit - $13. Those are the items most commonly rented.

    REMINDER: You MUST RSVP for this event by Thursday, 5/22 5pm! This includes providing the names of any of your guests who will attend. Only those on the list will gain park entrance and will not be charged an entry fee by the park. Due to high park attendance, the park frequently will turn away visitors if not listed with a group.

    So get with the program and send me your guest names ASAP! :-)
