As the day of the event arrives we come to realize we may have questionable wave patterns. Like any diving event we will make the call on the morning of the event when we get a look at the conditions for that day. We all know 95% of the time the forecast is wrong and we hope this is one of those times. Please do not loose site of the fact that this is a Relay for Life event and we are here to support the American Cancer Society and help them raise money for Cancer research and bring awareness to this awful disease. If you arrive at the beach and you determine you are not comfortable with the diving conditions then please walk the surface event for your allotted time. We have fun live music, food, raffles, and people who have been touched by cancer waiting to interact with our divers, so stay and enjoy the event. We look forward to seeing your there, working together we have made a difference!
OK, the new guy around here doesn't' want to monopolize the conversation here, but last week we added some great music to the R4L event... just another great reason to spend your day in LBTS.
The Bulldogs, a very good 8 piece band that I heard live last Saturday, will be our entertainment headliner for the evening. They will absolutely have the crowd singing and dancing for their entire show. They will be playing from approximately 6:30 to 10:30 at night. It will be a great night to bring your family and friends.
OK, I'm turning off the sales plug....

Hey everyone, I’m new to the group, but I'm on the R4L committee & have been working with Kim. Here’s a “+1” on something Kim has said: If you’re diving as a part of the event, BRING YOUR C CARDS...
This unique event that has garnered national attention from the American Cancer Society and of course safety is first and foremost. While it’s terrific that we’re having so many divers participate, there is no way that we know each and every diver. Therefore bringing your C-Cards is mandatory…
To participate, using the R4L parking and diver staging area, you will have to show your Card and sign a waiver. It’s the only way we’ll know that all the divers are certified, and that everyone who goes in the water has also come out. I’m sorry to be the bad-cop here, but you are going to be turned away from the diver’s staging area without a C card and signing the waiver.
I hope you understand, and the leadership committee for the Relay for Life Air and Sea appreciate your support..

This event is weather dependent. If we cannot dive we can enjoy the live music and walk the track for your team on land. If you need to cancel please be sure to send an email to your team captain to let us know. We do not want any diver left without a buddy. Also after you dive be sure to plan on staying around at this family friendly event and enjoy live music, and great food catered in by local restaurants. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Kim, Stephen and I will take the 9:00 PM diving slot.
I would love to help out, I am available for diving pretty much whenever needed, how can I get specifics?

What a great meeting and I am thrilled to be working with each one of you. Let’s get this party started by selling a few Luminarie Lights for Mitch Herman from Team DivingItRight. What a great job he did hosting the meeting tonight and he energy is so positive. Then we have our Mermaids (and out Mermaid lovers) that tirelessly work to raise funds as well as have fun and look good doing it, who always ask the right question and share creative ideas. Team DiveBar our team of legal professional who are here to help with a can do attitude. Gold Coast Divers are willing to step up and fill all the time slots needed because they are the group who really dives. And finally Team Force E Divers and Vone Research Who just got started and have brought excellence in diving as well as leadership abilities to the table. By working together we can make a difference.
