Member appreciation BBQ and Dive, Saturday, August 25, 8:30 a.m. Lovers Cove, Pacific Grove

The Monterey Bay Sea Otters dive club will hold its annual Membership Appreciation BBQ and Dive on Saturday, August 25th. This is a fun event for new and old divers and their families to come together and enjoy both the topside and underwater environments at Lovers Point.

This year, in addition to a fun dive, we will attempt the Navigation Challenge again. Members wishing to participate in the challenge will go out in teams and attempt to collect objects along an underwater course. See President Mark’s article at the beginning of the newsletter for more details. Dive Coordinator Corey will be overseeing the Navigation Challenge.

As with previous years, we will dive first, then eat, and some people will probably do a second dive. The first dive briefing will be at 8:30 AM. While divers are out, we will fire up the grill for burgers and dogs. We will eat around 11 AM. Members are asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share. The club will provide beverages and shade. Activities Director, Shannon, will oversee the topside activities. To help with meal planning, please RSVP with her by Sunday, August 20th, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Club Meeting, Wednesday, August 29th, 2018
Alex and Mike Weber will tell us about the 40,000 golf balls that they helped recover from the waters off of Pebble Beach.  Alex has just finished a paper on the effects of the balls on the marine environment and is a key player in getting the golf industry to awareness of this pollution issue.  If you've dived Stillwater Cove, you've no doubt encountered this issue.

Come join us at Crazy Horse Restaurant in Monterey. The meeting starts at 6:30, but come join us for dinner at 6:00, if you'd like.
