    Keeping an eye on sea conditions for this weekend. The Captains meeting will go on as planned and well decide on a go/ no go on Friday. If sea conditions are dangerous, well reschedule the dive dates. Stay tuned.

    Due to dangerous sea conditions, the tournament dive dates have changed to Friday October 27, Saturday October 28th and Sunday October 29th. Registration has been extended until Thursday. You can register at Discovery Dive World in Valparaiso pay your registration fee in cash.

    Fish turn in Times will be 3:00 - 5:00 pm all three days. Dont Forget: your fish must be fresh caught and properly iced to preserve freshness. Failure to follow this rule may disqualify your catch.

    Awards ceremony and fish fry will still be Sunday but will begin after the fish count is complete.

    We will have some fantastic raffles and some AMAZING Silent Auctions so, come prepared!

    Raffle tickets will be:
    1 for $1.00
    6 for $5.00

    The Sea Gods aren't playing nice and our air and water temperature window is quickly closing.

    Because we want our divers to be safe and successful, we have decided to re-schedule our $10K tournament until the spring. We are looking at the May time frame.

    Divers who have already paid their entry fee can let it ride or, if you want a refund, you can send a private message that includes your name and address to candy.hansard@gmail.com

    If you let it ride, you will be automatically registered for the next tournament.
