    I wish you well with a huge turn out for this long overdue Canadian event

    I question why you did not call upon them and highlight the well known and respected Canadian divers such as the currently very popular Alex Peirce who is all over the video with his dive programs Or the great Canadian explorer /innovator/author of the Sub Igloo fame Dr Joe MacInnes ?

    I suspect both would be honored and would present if approached

    My wife Dr Betty is Canadian born. We had planned a trip into that area of Canada but some personals event occurred which has prompted the postponed of our visit due to expected cold weather for this year--( I am a Kalifornia and any weather below 65 is considered artic weather and I put on my Sorrells ) Therefore, what is the expected weather at the tine of the DivCon ? Cold ? Temperature? Rain ? Snow? Sleet?

    Cheers from SoCal where it all began,

    SDM. III

    Well Sam, since this event is in Calgary in October, the weather is as likely to be above Sorrell temperatures as it is to be cold and snowy. Ya pays your money, ya takes her chances.
