    Join CHUM for our monthly meeting, Thursday, August 17th at Jake's Sports Bar on Chimney Rock. Our guest speaker is Chris Ledford, Reef Specialist & Dive Safety Officer with TPWD's Artificial Reef Program. His presentation will be on The Kraken. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Artificial Reef Program sank The Kraken, a 371-ft cargo vessel, on Jan. 20, 2017. Dubbed the Kraken after the mythical, squid-like sea monster immortalized on film and in literature, the vessel was sunk 67 miles off the coast of Galveston to create a new artificial reef. The Kraken’s proximity to the Flower Gardens Marine Sanctuary makes it a premiere dive location in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Our meetings officially start at 7:30 pm with CHUMMERS beginning to gather between 6:30 - 7:00 pm. Members and Non-members are welcome at our meetings.
