Hope to see ya'll there!
Hey Lake Mary Scuba Club! I know a few divers who dive with you all frequently, and wanted to extend a personal invitation to attend this awesome event!
I wanted to let everyone know that you are all welcome to attend a presentation by Becky and Dave, world class videographers for National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Fox and NBC.
The Weeki Wachee
footage that isn't yet available to the public will be shown as well as various other diving clips including some wreck and shark footage. They are also bringing gear (megs, dpv's, hd camera gear, etc) for those of you lurkers who might be up and coming in cave diving and want to see what it's all about.
The presentation will be in Classroom 1, Room 104 starting at 7pm on the 4th and there will be no charge except a $5 parking fee. I know many of you will be cutting it close after work, so I'll list nearby places to eat before you come.
If you'd like to grab a food/drinks before or after, UCF has a bar and grill with over 50 beers on tap (link) and the UCF tradition, wakadoos with limited food/drink selection.
If all you want is food, the following is available on campus-
chick fil a
chinese place (don't remember the name)
Knightros cafeteria (good food, not your typical cafeteria--all you can eat)
Within 5 minutes of campus you have-
(and several I can't remember)
Finally, I would like this time to publicly thank David and Becky for their time. They offered us a very reasonable rate that we were able to successfully petition SGA for. A fellow club officer, Michael Gibby also deserves a ton of credit, he's busted his butt helping get all the rooms reserved, funds issued, and club in order. This is the first time in the history of dive club to our knowledge we have brought in a guest speaker, and we managed to pull off two within the first 3 weeks of the semester. For those of you who have worked with government agencies, you know what an accomplishment pulling these things off are. For those of you who haven't, wait until the government is running health care (couldn't resist that one)
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Seating is reserved for UCF students first since it's their activity fees paying for this, however we reserved a large room to enable us to invite the community.
I'm sorry, I meant to add a link to the campus map! I've been so busy trying to remember all the groups I had promised to give information about this event to, that I forgot to do that!
The link to the campus map is correct. CL1 is Classroom 1, and it is the only building on campus with the name "Classroom," and the 1 is correct in that there is only one of them but it is misleading, since there is no Classroom 2...
You can park in any garage or "flat lot" with a green permit, or "D," for regular students. Red and blue spots and signs designate professor and staff parking--those lots shouldn't have permit selling stands, and every garage is a "green permit/D permit/regular student" lot. The permit selling stands are in the corners near stairwells, parking is $5, and the machines do not give change. I'd reccomend parking in garage D, across from the Arena, near Memory Mall, all at the top part of the map.
From there, look at the map to try to see how to get to CL1-- there are also maps along the walkways on campus. Basically, you'd exit garage D at one of the two corners facing in to campus, not the corners facing the Arena or the woods on the outskirts on campus. Then, you walk to your right. When you come to a sidewalk that runs towards the center of campus, follow it until you reach the innermost circle, then turn right on the circle, and Classroom 1 is right there, it's only a 2-3 minute walk from Garage D, and it's all in an open flat area known as Memory Mall. If you zoom in on the map, it should be pretty clear, Memory Mall is one of the largest big green areas on the map, in the middle on the top.
Room 104 is at the end of CL1 furthest from Garage D, towards campus.
You can park at any garage and use the map to find out how to get to CL1. There is always a chance parking will be scarce in Garage D but I don't believe it will be a problem. Next to Garage D is a "flatlot" and then next to that is Garage C, roughly the same directions apply just, walk to Garage D and you'll see CL1 across Memory Mall.
We are all excited that Becky and David are coming, they are bringing an HD projector so you'll be seeing footage seen by less than 100 people (most of them network exec's) in 1080P on a huge screen! They'll also have toys such as rebreathers and scooters and camera gear so you can see what they work with. They gave a similar, but shorter and with less gadgets, presentation at DEMA.
