Ok, it's time to start thinking about getting together again at the Storm for our semi-official summer gathering!!!! I am thinking that the later part of June would be good, but I am open to suggestions. How does the weekend of the 25th work for ya'll? I am going to try to camp the night before, if anyone wants to join.


And as always, post up what you are bringing!!!

Sorry, but will have to miss again this year.

I have to go to Roatan that weekend. (Sucks to be me :smiley32::smiley36::smiley32::smiley36:)

We will be at the Storm Memorial Day weekend and second weekend in June if someone wants to join us.

So far there are just 8 of us but that is plenty. :O) Though I thought more folks would sound off. We haven't heard from Mike and Teresa Oates yet, but I'm sure we will, I don't think Mike ever got his grill back from the last MADD Cookout. We also haven't heard from the Costanza's who rescued Mikes grill. So who has a grill they can bring?

Sorry all. Between work at work, and work at home, all I been doing is working.:smiley21: Right now, that weekend looks good for us. I need to get in the water.

Our grill is still MIA, but just let me know what else we can bring.

We should be able to make it! I have to talk to DH about it........Maybe we'll get one of the cabins at Abram's Creek if we camp- we have not bought a new truck yet.......

dove today water is 78 to 80 degrees. air was about 85. vis was 15ft. both stacks running. lots of new things to see. a cherub holding a frog, a dog, a fern, a large flamingo. we planted Santa and Frosty.

The 25th approaches quickly, anyone who cares to volunteer to bring cups, plates, drinks, chips, napkins, ice, coolers, hot dogs, brats, side dishes, desserts and not to mention that all important grill to the cookout please sound off. It's going to be hard to have a cookout without a grill. :O) So far I count 5 couples (10 folks). I have the burgers covered and I can bring napkins and each can bring their own drinks if that will help.

WV Diver

We are headed to the lake right now. Hope to see some of you there. :O)

please update us on the water temp. I think it might be time for a 3 mil.. there is a grill lid at about 20 ft. will that help??

WV Diver
06-12-2011, 16:45
Water temps are 83*F at the surface and 80*F at the 50' platform. Plenty warm enough for your 3 mil. :O) I saw your snowman today....funny he doesn't seem to be melting much at 80+ degrees. :O) He seems pretty heavy is he made of resin? And no I don't think that old grill lid will be a lot of help. I drug those pine trees out away from the line so people wouldn't have to deal with them the last time I was up there and they haven't returned. See you in a couple weeks.

the snowman and Santa are hollow plastic with concrete and rocks in their feet. was the snowman upright??? we may have to move it because of the angle of the stump. he kind of leans where he is. I bet he still has that same stupid grin too.

Snowman was upright on Saturday's night dive.

Santa is on the line between the 50 ft platform and the tree stump near the motorcycle. it is near the reindeer. original Santa is still off the 90 ft platform on the far side. we did not sink that one. he has been there more than 6 years.

I count only 8, Jane and hubby, Mike and Teresa, Eric and wifey and me and wifey. But that's fine, sounds like a good group to me. Mike will bring his small grill I think and I will have the burgers covered. Who wants to bring the other things?

Lizann and Pat we missed you!!! we put in a new line from the 1st intersection to the north 25 ft platform. and we put in 2 signs. on the north platform is a sign that says 'no u turn' and near the computer platform is one that says 'traffic laws strictly enforced' mocepts choc cake was a hit!!!! yum. I think I'll have a piece for breakfast...

New to this forum and would love to connect with you guys & gals. I am new to diving, but am definitely hooked. Would like to get as many dives in locally as my work/call schedule allows before the season ends around here. Completed my deep dives, wreck dives, drift/boat dives- night dives & navigation at Summersville Lake Aug 19-21. Wish me luck!! Annie
