Cook-Out & Garage Sale!
We wanted to invite everyone to our 2nd annual Spring Cook-out and Garage Sale. For those of you that don’t remember here’s how it works, we will stick some tables out in the parking lot and you bring any of your old SCUBA gear you’re looking to get rid of and put it up for sale. That’s it. We don’t take a cut and of course don’t guarantee anything either but it’s a chance to sell your stuff and, hopefully, upgrade to some new gear. We had a lot of fun last year so give it a try. We will also have food, drinks, stories and more at the Spring Cook-out so please stop by and spend the day. Any purchases from the store will get you a free T-shirt while supplies last. Hope to see everyone there.
Some of you have heard me talk about my big trip next year. I’m going to Palau, Yap and Hawaii and I’d love for you to come along. The nice thing about this trip is you can go on all or part of it. Don’t want to go to Palau? meet me in Yap. Can’t take 20 days off skip Hawaii or even Hawaii and Yap. I’ll provide all the details and help you make your reservations but how you go and what you do is up to you. Here are the details and the approximate costs. All are subject to change but the times should be within a day or so.
