    I just wanted to get the word out that this year's Scuba Adventure Day at Lake Pleasant is planned for Saturday May 1st, 2010. The first planning meeting is set for the end of January and I will update everyone as more information becomes available. If you are not familiar with the event this will be the 3rd year the Lake Pleasant Regional Park has hosted it. It is the only coordinated dive event hosted in the Phoenix area for the benefit of the local diving community. Local dive operators will be hosting underwater events as well giving away thousands of dollars worth of prizes. Save room on your calendar and join us at the premier diving lake in central Arizona for a day of fun!

    Lake Day Update:

    So far the following dive centers are participating and will have $2 off coupons if you plan on diving.
    AZ Divers-Phoenix
    El Mar Diving Centers- Mesa
    Inland Water Divers- Goodyear
    N Depth Scuba- Chandler
    Phoenix Scuba- Phoenix
    Sports Chalet- Peoria
    The Scuba Shop- Mesa

    So far we have received prize donations from the following organizations:
    (I have heard rumors of others but I have not seen them yet)

    Blackbeard's Cruises
    Ikelite
    PrincetonTec
    SeaLife

    The event will be held in the area of the 10 lane ramp on the southwest portion of the lake as the last two years. The exact location will depend on the water level. The event begins at 8am and will end at 3 pm. Some of the events scheduled are as follows:

    Try Scuba/ Discover Scuba
    Navigation Course
    Speargun Target Contest
    Lobster Grab
    Treasure Hunt
    Slippery Snorkel Race

    As the last two years the Diver Down II and the Scubateers dive boats will be hosting divers at various dive locations on the lake. This year Dillions @ Scorpion Bay will be serving lunch at the event and hopefully we will have a pancake breakfast although that is still being worked out.

    If you plan on diving remember to bring some air cylinders and don't forget your C-card!

    See you there!

    What's the latest? Looks like with the level of the lake the event will take place someplace other than the last two years.

    This year's event will take place at the top of the 10 lane boat ramp, I am pretty sure you won't be able to miss the event. It is basically in the same general area of the park as the last two years.

    PS.. the prize list keeps growing, so if you are tired of sitting at home doing nothing here is your excuse to venture up to the lake!
