Well......It does not seem like anyone attended the memorial dive last year. So it seems that I should have the place all to myself?
Thanks Guys for your input!

I can't make it since I work on Sundays but if you come in town early or stay late and are around on a Thursday or Friday I would be up for some diving.

I appreciate the offer, but I only have that one day. Already made the flight reservation with American and they will charge me $100 to change + whatever differance in flight. I will be back in september though and I'll make it for a full weekend!
Thanks!

It's crowded, noisy and packed full of people. That being said, if I wasn't going away for work that week, I'd do it again this year. :smiley20:

Is it hard to get any dives in?
Thanks!

I didn't have any problems. Last year I got three in, my buddy got four. I just ate too much during the last surface interval to make the last dive.:smilie40:

It was a good time.

In the shallow part of the quarry you can see entire (schools? pods? herds? classes?) of divers. But further out things get less crowded.

Sounds like it should be fun!
