The Great Lakes Shipwreck Festival

Today was super fun!

It started early with a group of us at the dive center heading to Washtenaw Community College to set up our booth for the 28th Great Lakes Shipwreck Festival. For me this has always been a great opportunity to promote Divers Incorporated and the Quarry but for the last three years it has been a fabulous opportunity to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones. This year was no exception.

The day was great. I had a presentation on River Diving that was well attended and the only downside was that I did a horrible job trying to cram 2.5hours of material into 50 minutes. I know people got a lot out of it but it was super rushed and I didnt finish and had to skip tons of material.

The rest of the day was spent in the booth catching up with old friends, Meeting new people, and finally putting a face to a name on many of the people who I know from facebook or other online chatrooms. There were a lot of people there and I am really looking forward to the summer and having an opportunity to dive with a lot of Great Divers. Only 31 Days until the Quarry opens for the 2009 season. AND only three more weeks until scubafest in Columbus. I am looking forward to seeing more of my friends at that event.

  1. I enjoyed it. The presentations were first class. I went to the river diving one from Rich Synowiec, two from Valerie van Heest and one from Andy Donato.
