Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, and with it comes one of the most unique
opportunities available in the diving world, we’re talking about the Northeast
Diving Equipment Group’s Vintage Dive Gear
Rally
at Dutch Springs.

This incredible event is open to anyone with a
valid c-card. All you need to do is stop by, sign up, and take a little time
assisting other divers as they get dressed in some of the coolest dive gear
ever, from the legendary US NAVY MK V hardhat rig, to the latest in commercial
hats from Kirby Morgan. Once you gain a little familiarity with the procedures
in place, you can select the gear for you very own hardhat adventure, with
surface supplied air, full communications and safety divers ready to make sure
that you have the adventure of a lifetime!

There is no fee for this incredible opportunity,
but considering the tremendous expense of putting on this unique event,
donations are gladly accepted.

Dive operations will commence Saturday morning and
run through Monday, and Northeast Dive News will be there on Saturday and Sunday
to lend a hand and document the fun.

They start setting up Saturday morning when the park opens. If you’re there early, stop by to lend a hand. These guys are really great and can always use a hand getting the gear down to the water. They’ll be diving until Monday, but don’t wait until the last minute, you may get shut out...
