    Wink Dive Portal & Other Prizes Contest - Season 6!

    Dive Portal & Other Prizes Contest - Season 6!
    (Win and have something to keep you busy during the cold, cold winter!!)

    A year ago today, we jumped into the deep (figuratively) and bought our new home in Alabama. A few months prior, I had been the proud, proud winner of the Dive Portal Contest when scubajane was passing it forward, a year or so after her win. Now I didn't actually leave Texas and get to Alabama till November 11th. So to celebrate those crazy few weeks, my version of the Dive Portal Contest will start today, and end on or before November 11th!

    The Prizes:

    1. Dive Portal DVD's 1, 2 & 3 (however DVD 1 was misplaced by Rileybri (WAY back when!) and no one has been able to find a replacement. So the case for #1 is empty, but DON'T toss it!! The case has a place inside for all the winners to sign!!
    2. IMAX Deep Sea DVD added by John Yaskowich
    3. Sharkwater DVD added by Lulubelle
    4. Artic Drift (A Dirk Pitt Novel) by Clive Cussler added by scubajane
    5. Coral Reef Adventure DVD added by Diver Kat (Saw it in IMAX when it came out and it was beautiful!!)


    As for the actual Contest …. Having just returned from our latest trip to Cozumel, I’m basing this year’s contest on diving. My last dive gave me a total number of 459 dives …. All of which I have downloaded to my PC over the years. SOOOOO ….. here goes …..

    I’ll award the prizes to the person that comes within 30 minutes (under or over) of guessing how many total minutes those 459 dives add up to!!


    • NOTE!!!! Only 1 guess a day!! (But come back daily to guess again!!)
    • On November 11th, if no one has hit the mark, then I will award the prizes to the person that has guessed the closest overall.


    (AND if there’s an over/under tie, the tie breaker will be who guesses the most times BACON
    has been posted on the ST Forum ……. JUST KIDDING!!!!!!)

    And just for kicks .... go ahead and add something interesting to your post .... maybe a fun dive tip you learned along the way ..... It's always fun around here to share the love!!! (Although few will share the BACON!!!!)

    My first guess is going to be 405 hours 45 minutes.

    Tip: Something I just learned, when leaving the island take your baggage to the airport early and check-in. Then you have the rest of the day without lugging the luggage around to tour the island before your flight (usually later in the day). When you get back to the airport, you can avoid everybody checking in and simply go through security.

    That way the baggage people have more time to steal stuff from your luggage. They don't need to be in a hurry.

    Is this at all related to the Newfoundland (Newfy) ceremony of "Screaching In" a person by having them "Kiss The Cod"?
    And on the eighth day, God said, "OK, Murphy, you take over"
