Just got word from the City of New Braunfels that air fills will probably NOT be available at the fire department. Please make sure you have Air, FYI…. the closest shop to get air is 30 min away.

Woo Hoo! Finished my class in Austin and just checked into the Wyngate. Will head out for food in a bit, then a good nights sleep before some pre-trashfest diving tomorrow.

Hello, Divers

Just a little FYI if you have NEVER been to the Comal River before the temp is 72-73 year round, the Vis. If NO rain in the two days before you can see up to 20-30 ft. If it is raining the day of, that ok you will be wet anyways. It is only 3-15 ft deep so you will not need a lot of lead. In the years past most of the divers only used 1-2 tanks.
We will get our assigned areas of the river at the registration

No dinner plans on Friday, lots of people arriving late that night or on Saturday morning. We’ll do something Saturday night though.
rashley - 9/20/2010 5:00 PM

Got notice from my friend that he is bringing one more friend, so our teams are growing.

I will be there on Wednesday night and am staying through Sunday. Who all is getting together for dinner on Friday night?

Greg - 9/17/2010 12:59 PM
Can’t wait to dive with you all during the TrashFest...make sure to tell your friends about it so we have a good group like we did last year.
rashley - 9/15/2010 7:15 PM

My local dive buddy and I are planning to attend. Don’t have a team yet. Will there be teams needing extras?

Hey Glenn,
Last year, some of our guys/girls were in full wetsuits/gloves/hoods and some of them were in t-shirt and shorts. It’s hard to tell what you may need depending on the temp. I think Mike said a 3ml should work. I’m sure after being in the cold water, when you get out you’ll want something to keep you warm incase it’s windy at all. Hope this helps a little. Becky

Can someone tell me how cold the water will be, or usually is in the Comal at this time of year? Do I need a full wetsuit, shorty, or full with hood? This is my first time and I am fairly new to diving. Any help would be appreciated.

God Bless,
