LA: Casino Point - 11/16/13 at 8:30 am. Free ferry tickets!

Postby Colleen Wisniewski » Tue Aug 13, 2013 9:05 pm

Calling all divers!

Join us for an awesome fall survey at Casino Point in Avalon on beautiful Catalina Island. It's always a fun island day! And this year, it's being supported by Southern California Edison in our Adopt-A-Reef program, and there are some fun details coming! Most importantly, if you can commit to being at the dive park for a survey and some extra diving (showing people how we do surveys), we will cover the cost of your ferry tickets! So if you can be with us from 8:15 am to approximately 4:30 pm, we will reimburse you for your ferry ticket after the event. The first 20 divers to confirm their attendance for that time will be eligible for a reimbursement. Of course, if you only want to participate for part of the day, we'd be happy to have you join us, we just won't be able to reimburse you for your ticket.

Here are the details:

Meet at the benches behind the Casino at 8:15 AM on Saturday November 16th.

Bring all your dive equipment, snacks, water and survey gear (you can rent tanks and weights at the dive park if you don't want to schlep your own to the island - don't forget your cert card for rentals and tank fills.) I will provide all of the data sheets! Our Edison partners will provide a light breakfast and also a full lunch, although you may want to bring your refillable water bottles to stay hydrated.

Who wants to join this survey? I absolutely love Catalina so I’m really excited about it. I hope you can help us with another successful fall survey! Plus, this should be our final SoCal survey for 2013, so this could be a really fun way to end the survey season. And, free ferry tickets! How can you beat that?

As most of you know, the dive park is a beautiful dive site. Plus, it's probably one of the easiest shore dives you will do, so get yourself over to the island and join us for a great day.

You will want to make ferry reservations in advance to make sure you have a space on the boat. Although I'm not sure they have the November schedule posted as of yet. http://www.catalinaexpress.com/scheduleFares.php

Reply to this post or email me if you plan to join us for this fun and beautiful dive. I will update this post with a list of divers as I get replies. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for all that you do for Reef Check!

The team (the first 20 people to commit for the 8:30 to 4:30 time frame will be eligible for ferry reimbursements):
1. Colleen (can commit 8:30 - 4:30)
2. Scott M. (can commit 8:30 - 4:30)

I'm working out Coral-care, but think we might be able to do this one, and if so, could commit to the whole day. I'll let you know when confirmed...

Thanks, Kathy. Forgot to update my recycled post about the MIA lockers. I'm still sad they are gone. Yes, meet at the benches next to the casino!

Assuming you can stay from 8:30 to 4:30? Maybe we can finally get an adult beverage before your boat back home.

Awesome Dana! I've got you two listed as tentative. And I love that it's "Coral-Care".

Let me know when you can confirm!

Yes, til 4:30 or more-thirty, depending on whether Catalina Island Brew House is open. Thanks.

Hi Colleen:
Sign me up.
If you need people for post survey, I can stay. If have it covered, I'll head back earlier.
Thanks,
Dirk
