Sir White Beard’s Galaxy Dive Extravaganza With ISLA Divers!
Come join in our Annual Fun!! October 29-31, 2021 – We’re there for three days, but you can join in for as short or long a stay as you wish!
We’ll be heading up to Ginnie Springs once more in October for the annual Galaxy Dive, see below for detailed plan. Participants may join us for as much time as they want. We’ll be there for 3 days and two nights, but you can come up for just a day trip or longer – your decision. Reservations are not required for basic camp sites and are 1st come 1st served at the Springs. Sites with water and electrical hookups must be reserved in advance using the camp site info link below. Tom (Sir White Beard) will be arriving Friday morning to set up the grill and his site. He’ll be grilling stuff all weekend and participants are welcome to join in, but donations are encouraged to defray the cost of food and supplies. The Galaxy Dive will be Saturday night. We’ll be leading the dive, but divers are responsible for their own entry, camping, dive fees, and equipment rentals (as appropriate). The park charges $30 / day for diving and $25 per person / day for camping. This is an open event and everyone is welcome to participate.
*** Ginnie Springs is not renting equipment or filling tanks at this time *** Divers must bring everything with them. Isla Divers can arrange equipment rentals and will be conducting SSI Night Dive Specialties and Cavern Courses over the weekend. Sign up at the links in the plan below or contact Manny or Wendy if you are interested. If the course you want shows full on the web site, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you are going to the Galaxy Dive and which course you are interested in. They may be able to add students if the demand is sufficient.
