Opening Day at Haigh Quarry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Haigh Quarry opens up for weekends starting April 6th and several of us will be there to shake the dust out of our dive gear.  Water might be on the cool side, but we sometimes have our clearest conditions during this time.  We will keep it simple, but there might be brats to be had for the grill.  Hope to see you there!

    We had a great time today the weather was very mild, the Viz was fantastic and the water was.... Beside Wet.... COLD!!! There are a few bits still defrosting?!?! Great day and had a blast sitting around chatting and laughing! It was ashame that Beth slipped and was injured, just glad to hear that when the ambulance came to take her - it was a rather minor injury!!! Great to see you all out at the opening today!

    Best visibility I've ever seen at Haigh! About 50 feet on the first dive, though you had to earn it in 39 F water temperature. Less of a good day for Beth, who took a tumble on the wet wood of the dock - hope your leg heals quickly, Beth!

      I think that Dive Right In in Plainfield rents Fusions.

      I believe Elmer's rents Whites, not sure which models though; Scuba Sensations rent Bare

    I expect to be there around 8:30 am. Hmm... dives three Saturdays in a row: Costa Rica, Haigh, and Carmel California.

    Without it raining for a few weeks. Haigh Q. should be as clear as if will ever get. Esp. if no divers have been stirring up the silt duing the previous few days. Have a great time.

    Glad I wont be the only one breaking in a new drysuit

  • Jack D

    More than likely will be there. (already put the tanks and weights in the car)

    No dry suit yet, so it's a bit too cold for me. As soon as it warms up I'll be there!

    April 4, 2013

  • Mark S.

    I will be in Haigh doing some practice dives and I am looking forward to stop by, say hi and meet everyone

    Anyone want to carpool out? I'll drive; I'm in Des Plaines (just moved here this weekend from Michigan); also, do they have tanks to rent at Haigh?

  • Jack B.

    Sorry, I have a race on Sunday and it wouldn't be a good idea to scuba the day before the race.

    March 18, 2013

  • Dean N.

    I'm going to be trying out some new equipment (back plate and wing) and checking to see if my drysuit was fixed. Might need some help.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
