    Tenkiller 50 years ago

    My wife does a 25 and 50 year article for the Skiatook paper, last nite she found this article that may interest some.

    DIVERS ACQUIRE SITE

    The Oklahoma Blue Gill Divers club has acquired a campsite for its outings on Lake Tenkiller. Chuck Mason, president of the club, recently informed the State Wildlife Conservation Department, the club has obtained a lease on a seven acre tract in the Black Gum public use area and has made plans for development of the land for the clubs members.

    that's back when you could see the bottom 20-30 feet way from the surface anytime on Tenkiller. It was the clearest lake around.

    I did a search for the dive club mentioned and didn't come up with anything. It is in the Cookson area, I wonder if they ever developed anything.

    Back in '76, I was a member of the Wichita Aquahunters - a dive club that was established by a bunch of spear fishers. Back then, there were a good number of clubs that sponsored spear fishing tournaments and I recall one I participated in at Tenkiller spnsored by the OK Blue Gill divers.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
