Mark your calendars for
Mar. 21st - 23rd

Come for 1 day or the whole weekend.

All are welcome. This event is open to all dive levels, newbie OW, all the way to full cave certification. If you don’t have a buddy, don’t worry, there are a bunch of us and there’s always someone ready for a dive! Diving is set at your own pace, when and where you want in between eating and sleeping. The only dive that is a scheduled dive will be the galaxy dive around dusk on Sat. evening. As it is a family event, there are plenty of non divers and kids too. 

Ginnie Springs has a full service dive shop and a pretty nice little store. 
They also rent canoes, kayaks and tubes for use on the river.

If you check in on Friday and won’t be diving until Sat., go ahead and pay for your diving then and get your wrist bands.

 and let us know how many are attending in your party and what you’ll be bringing to pitch in for the group dinner and breakfast or if you would be willing 
to help prepare and clean up for the meals.
Once a week up until the event, I’ll update the food list, helpers and who’s attending. 
Check for the latest list for ideas on what to bring and what’s still needed.
