Come Boldly Explore the Underwater Universe at La Jolla Shores!

You must RSVP both here and on the RDT site (http://www.roddenberryadventures.com/events/6th-annual-comic-con-dive/).

To all Scuba Divers and Ocean Lovers, come join Power Scuba as we join our brother group, the Roddenberry Dive Team, for a morning of adventure! We'll dive La Jolla Shore's Underwater Ecological Preserve. Generally, as scuba divers, we never need an excuse to go diving but in this particular case the RDT has rallies their resources to provide their friends and members an unforgettable dive opportunity.

Donuts & Coffee:
For the early birds; a few of us will be arriving at La Jolla Shores (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=san+diego&sll=32.855743,-117.254741&sspn=0.0115,0.014784&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=San+Diego,+California&ll=32.856996,-117.256887&spn=0.00575,0.007392&t=h&z=17) (next to “Kellog Park (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=san+diego&sll=32.855743,-117.254741&sspn=0.0115,0.014784&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=San+Diego,+California&ll=32.856996,-117.256887&spn=0.00575,0.007392&t=h&z=17)”) around 6:30am to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean as the sun pours onto the Pacific. Coffee, juice, yogurt, donuts and muffins will be available. We plan on gathering at one of the beach-side fire-pits for a bit of warmth and camaraderie. (If you have extras chairs and are willing to bring them, please do so for our out of town guests).

Diving & Discovery:
Divers will begin suiting up around 7:30 am for our adventure to the La Jolla Underwater Canyon. Once geared-up and ready, we’ll do a surface-swim out about 100 yards to where the depth is approximately 40+ feet. After a final buddy/gear check, we’ll descend to bottom where we’ll continue west to a maximum depth of 100’. From there, each buddy team, while monitoring their depth, time and air, will explore this magnificent underwater realm and gradually work their way east back to the shore.

Trashy Diver Underwater & Beach Cleanup::
We encourage you to be a "Trashy Diver" and join us for an underwater cleanup and a beach cleanup to keep our ocean healthy and safe.

ADMIN STUFF:

If you have not filled out a liability release for Power Scuba Meetup, please follow this link to the file, print, sign and bring to the event, along with your C-Card (scuba certification card). You only need to do this once a year: Liability Release and Assumption of Risk (http://files.meetup.com/1307107/New_Liability_Release.doc)

You must also read this: Disclaimer and Clarification... AKA Terms and Conditions (http://www.meetup.com/Scuba-Diving-San-Diego/messages/boards/thread/5914647)

Anyone with a medical condition possibly counter-indicative to diving must have a doctors signature on a diving waiver form and submit signed form to Bill Powers (or an organizer) before they may attend any Power Scuba event. YOU MAY NOT ATTEND AN EVENT WITH AN UNDISCLOSED MEDICAL CONDITION. Doing so is grounds for expulsion from the group. Here is our medical statement: Medical Statement (http://files.meetup.com/1307107/Medical%20Statement%20and%20Questionnaire.pdf) Therein you'll find a Doctor Waiver form as well.

Attending any scuba event Power Scuba facilitates constitutes attendee's affirmation they are medically fit to dive, have read the Terms and Conditions, and have submitted a signed Liability Release to an organizer.

Important Note: It is not the organizer's role to lead your dive. He/she merely facilitates you getting to the pre-dive meeting location. The Organizer will not assign you a buddy nor will he/she be leading the dive as a "group dive". Visibility and liability do not allow for that. When you enter the water, you are on your own. You must plan and execute your dive with your dive buddy only. Once members arrive at the meeting spot, the Organizer becomes simply another diver.

Your participation constitutes your affirmation you agree to these above rules and disclaimers.
