Ok guys....so how are we gonna label ourselves at the party? We almost need everybody to pin a pic of their avatar on themselves. :smiley36: We need to think of some way to identify each other....maybe everybody wears a "hello my name is" sticker. The ladies will be easy to identify...we will all have dive flag toenails. Most likely decked out with glitter and rhinestones.:smiley2: What are your thoughts?

I won't be there to attend, but you could have the attendees write their nametags, but leave them on a central board until someone guesses who they are. Add a bit of mystery to things. Of course some will be easier than others to guess. :smiley2:

um...I get i.d.-ed already.
No name tag for me.
I may go incognito with a blonde wig and big sunglasses.

I hope the hamburger and hotdog guys are there, they were cool and the food was great. They worked their butts off. I'll bet they cooked over 500 hamburgers and almost 1,000 hot dogs at the last party.....

"Boonie hat" is a Vietnam-era term. I'm from that era.

Larry: please make these with the ScubaToys logo, so I can stop advertising Catalina Divers Supply. I bought this hat when I dove in Catalina

Oh I just thought about something... I don't have my own tanks, last time I rented at CSSP but I noticed by mid morning they were out of tanks. With all of the people coming for the ST party, should I rent some from another dive shop and bring them with me? The only reason I hate to rent from someone else is because the closest shop is over an hour away from my house and I don't get off work until 5 so its hard to return them on Mon. But I would hate to show up for the ST party and CSSP not have any tanks.

Perhaps, you might suggest that ScubaToys bring a few extra tanks from the shop.

Those of us who have been to the Pavillion know about the parking situation. You park in ad around trees. There is also a small field across the way. Now given that the June store party had over 1000 attendees, if, let's say a fourth of those show up, parking will be messy. You'll have to do some walking because you'll park far, far away. Now, carry your gear with tank(s) that distance.

For Robert, the CSSP owner, Sunday will be a good day at $20 per person. Imagine if 500 folks show-up. That's $10,000 thanks to ScubaToys alone. $10,000...that's some serious beer money. The check-in lines will extend out the park front gate.

Good point -- I'm thinking I need to drag my butt out of bed early to beat the lines. I could always nap for an hour or so before the crowds start arriving.

I doubt I will be diving that day with everyone there.

Here's an idea... tell me if you like this. Everyone print off 2 pictures of your avatar... write you screen name on it... pin it to your shirt. Take the other copy with your name, bring it in and we will have a box where you drop it off. Anyone wearing their tag, can drop their avatar and name into the box and at the end of the day we will have a drawing and give away a prize only to one of the folks who is a board member.

Any board member (other than devildiver - he made fun of me in another post) will be eligible.

Sound good?

4hrs? Yeah, about as far for me (strange how large Texas is). If I can convince my wife someday I swear I'm making a trek up there.

The main problem right now is she don't want me spending the money after the 4hr drive.
