    Flower Gardens Trip - June 2nd - 3rd 2011

    Still a few months away and you never know if the weather will cooperate, but....

    I'm looking at doing the Fling on Thurs/Fri (06/02 - 06/03) and was wondering if anyone else from the DFW area might be interested in buddying up and carpooling.

    Hey Tom,

    Keep the thread alive, I will check the calendar. Have not been since the last trip, it's about time to make another trip. Tried to make it last year but it didn't work out.

    Shawn -- I never made it there either last summer -- of course the oil spill had a bit to do with that. If you are interested in going but have a more preferred set of days, let me know. I'd like to keep it on the weekdays 'cause it is cheaper and my summer weekends are booked with kid's activities. But I'm not 100% tied to that week.

    take care
    Tom

    Actually this should be a good time to go but I can't commit yet. I have been out of town (just got back from Minnesota-Snow? Really?!?!) and leaving again Monday, as soon as we can get some time to sit down to discuss we will try to figure this out.

    I am all for it if we can make it work.

    Hell yea, Jans.

    Cool -- let's plan on it. I don't have an affinity for either of the dive shops, but there is a "local" shop from Denton and as long as the price is competitive, I'll probably book through them. I didn't see any pricing on their website, so I sent them an email tonight.

    OK - I'm back from Spring Break vacation (no diving, but lots of hiking ). The Denton dive shop, Island Divers, had responded to my email while I was gone. Below is their response.

    The June trip is $460 with air and an additional $65 for nitrox. I did get a call today from the boat saying that if fuel goes up more that they are going to have to add a $30 surcharge per person. That is not in affect yet but it might be coming. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    When you know your plans let me know -- I probably won't book till late April, unless there is a compelling reason to book early.

    Tom,

    Those dates look good for me. I did the Fling last March and had a great time. I took rescue with you a couple of years ago. At this point I am a go.....

    Bill -- good to hear from you. I hope things are going well. Sounds like we might be able to get a group for a car pool.

    Pandora and Devil Diver -- do you know when you guys will have a idea if these dates will work for you?
