    TrashFest 2011 - Oct 1st - Official Thread

    Mark your calendars! TrashFest will be October 1st this year!

    Come take part in the oldest underwater clean up event in the country, enjoy a fun day of diving in New Braunfels, Texas and an after-party BBQ where all team members are eligible to win great door prizes. Last year's participants took home nearly $39,000 in trips, dive equipment, and other awesome stuff!

    All the low-down can be found at the TrashFest website.

    Pre-registration starts June 20th. Get your team together today!

    Hope to see all of you there!

    Thanks to all the teams that pre-registered! Looks like we will have a record-breaking turnout!

    Due to the overwhelming response, we will NOT be registering teams the day of the event. We will accept individual registrations that will be used to fill teams with less than 8 members. The registration fee for each individual will be $15.

    Team captains, don't forget to have each of your team members sign the Trashfest Waiver. Please make sure you print the Rules and Regulations on the back of the waiver. Also, be sure to remind all divers to bring their c-cards!

    Check-in and registration will be from 8am to 10am. Diving in assigned river sections will start at 10am and then the diving in any river will start at Noon. This year we will not assign anyone to the Last Take Out, but it will be open to all participants starting at Noon. Remember all trash is DUE at weigh in at 3pm.

    See you next weekend!
