SB: Refugio State Beach, Saturday November 10 SUCCESS!!!!

Refugio State Beach Fall Survey
Saturday November 10
8:00 AM

Hey Reef Checkers!

Come join us for our fall survey at one of the best shore dives in CA - Refugio State Beach! This is a great way to spend a Saturday along the Santa Barbara coast. Why not join this team to help out? We need all the help we can get, especially since our SB teams tend to be relatively small!

The Plan:
Meet at 8:00 AM on Saturday November 10 with 2 tanks and all your dive & survey gear at the east end of the park by the picnic tables and swing set. Plan on making two dives! I will arrange for free parking ahead of time so just let the ranger know of your VIP status (Reef Check Volunteer Diver) and you won’t have to pay.

Hope to see you at this classic Santa Barbara dive. Conditions are supposed to be great this time of year! :D

The team:

1. Brianne
2. Curtis S.
3. Mike S. (a later start is his choice or he will only be there for the second dive)
4. Bridget
5. Alan
6. Ron S.
7. Brad S. (maybe)
8.

Should be able to make this one, as long as I'm not assisting with a class.

Be aware that this date is also the day of the SB Marathon and traffic in the morning may be bad due to all the runners and spectators.....although the race starts at 7am, the 101 may be slow for those travelling from the south.

This is the last day of soccer season for my youngest (and I'm the coach). Game ends at 10:00 AM, I can be at Refugio around 11:30. Any option to do this as a lunch+ survey, or can I just jump in for dive two? This is always a small team, so hoping we can coordinate some flexibility.

Way to go team Santa Barbara! Paul-Thank you so much for the news about the marathon, for all those driving up please allow for extra time! Mike- of course we have room for you during the second dive, that is no problem at all and I appreciate you working Reef Check into your schedule!

November 10th at Refugio look good. I will make it and see if Brad is available as well. If we start later - can Schecter make it?

Ron- I look forward to seeing you there and hopefully Brad too! Mike will be there for the second dive however we will all be getting in the water before that to knock out as much as we can first! I'm looking forward to Refugio round two. Let's hope for great conditions!

Sorry to say I won't be able to make the dives at Refugio this weekend due to my son's soccer team getting into a tournament in Arroyo Grande.
Wishing you all the best for getting the surveys done. I can be available the following weekend (on Sunday) if necessary.

Hi Paul, sorry to hear you can't make it but I will let you know if we need additional divers to help finish it up. Good luck to your son in his tournament!

I just realized I have training days on 11/10 and 11/11 for a hospital internship. I won't be able to make the Refugio dive. I was really looking forward to it!
