The 55th annual ScubaFest Home show in Columbus Ohio is just around the corner. I will be attending for my 5th year as a vendor/presenter. This is a fun show that is usually very well attended. Saturday and Sunday are filled with presentations that are included in the admission price and there are also workshops available at extra cost. The location this year is at the NorthPointe Hotel and Conference Center located at 100 Green Meadows Drive South, Lewis Center, Ohio 43035. It is just a few minutes north of 270 on Rt 23. There are vendors comprised of shops, manufacturers, local quarries, and travel reps as well as a booth with artwork by Pascal Lecocq. There is also a photo contest for divers from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia and this year the grand prize is a week on the Belize Aggressor. Details here Photo Contest The main speaker on Saturday at the banquet is Dr. Charles Ciampaglio, Ph.D. The title of his presentation will be Will the Real Megalodon please Swim Forward?Who is Dr. Ciampaglio? Check out this YouTube video! My own presentation this year is titled "Overheads and Recreational Divers: They Don't Mix!" I will also again be doing mini workshops in the booth on threading plates, configuring a long hose reg set, and signing copies of the second edition of 'SCUBA: A Practical Guide for the New Diver". I hope to see many of you from the Midwest region and get to talk to you about diving. I will have products from the lines I carry and some will be for sale. Others I will be taking orders as there are some restrictions on what can and cannot be sold at the venue.
