Since, we are trying to make this an economy trip for everyone, we will only be staying one night (if anyone is interested in additional night, let me know)

Saturday morning - get up early guys if you want to get some quality diving in for the weekend and meet up at Pepper Park in Ft. Pierce and start our first shore dive. We can do a relaxing drift dive and maybe get some lobsters or at least see some interesting marine life) (for those AOW seekers, here is your chance to get one marked off - Drift as well as practice your Navigation skills) and for those wanting a refresher, tag along or if you just wanna dive, then dive, dive, dive)......

Saturday afternoon (1:30pm) - Blue Heron Bridge, depending on when we get there, we can hit the bridge first then the new snorkel/dive trail or the other way around, but the best thing is that we are diving. (for those AOW seekers, here is your chance to get one marked off - Navigation)

Saturday night - relax, if anyone wanting the refresher, lets meet at the pool and go over things.

Sunday morning - 2 tank charter - Charter Confirmed 8/31/2012- site still TBD (AOW - Deep and Boat or Nitrox)

Sunday afternoon - can hit the BHB again or Pepper Park (attendees choice of dive) (AOW - Fish ID)

    What a great weekend, got off to a bit of a rocky start with Pepper Park reminding me of Green Pea Soup, but BHB delivered and so did the charter. And the guys never complained about the conditions. They did great with their skills and their diving, remembering to take it slow and steady going down....I loved watching them taking it all in :) Congrats to Ryan, Zach, and Russ for obtaining both their AOW and their Nitrox certifications this weekend :) And thanks to Sissy for the extra eyes and for pointing out some great marine life :)

    The Viz was not great at the surface but when we got down to the reef it was like the lights came on! The colours were vivid, the sea life exciting!

    Okay got the charter reserved (still awaiting payment from a couple but on the list for now :) ). Ryan, you and Nikki and Michael & I have hotel rooms awaiting us. Michael and I will be heading down on Friday, we older divers need more rest....or maybe we just wanna be able to party later on Friday :)

    Ryan (and hopefully Zachx2), the other change in the schedule for you will be Saturday afternoon/evening - Nitrox review and test :), but everything else is right on schedule :)

    The charter is holding 10 spots, I need to confirm the spots tomorrow so we will need payment in place to hold your spot. Charters fill up fast in West Palm Beach. They have my credit card for payment, so I can't pay for spots we are not going to use :) I know you all understand. And if you want a hotel room will need that as well so I can make sure we can get the correct number of rooms reserved for the price :) Thanks :) Ryan you are all up to date :)

    If anyone is considering this trip and wants to participate in the learning part of it...Advanced or Nitrox, let us know by this Friday (Sept 7th) so we can get you the material in time for you to study. This is a great trip if you just wanna dive too, lots of diving for little $$ so great bang for the buck :)

    Sissy (she's signing up on the board soon and RSVPing) and I are confirmed. Nikki is tagging along for some possible snorkeling, and whatever else she finds along the way. I'm trying to talk Chris into going/getting his AOW, as well as two other guys both named Zach. They had received their OW with me back in March; so I'm trying to get them to come down at the very least, and if they want also get their AOW.

      Sounds great Ryan, thanks for getting the word out...it will be lots of FUN!
