June 26, 2015

Reservation form and payment must be received by June 26th.   

Maximum capacity of 12 people on the 10‘ x 30’ double decker pontoon boat.  The BGDC has reserved ONE pontoon boat.  If trip sign-ups exceed the boat capacity, another pontoon boat will be reserved IF IT IS AVAILABLE.  So, please sign up now to ensure you have a spot on the boat. 

A COMPLETE sign-up includes:  current membership (or guest of current member that is participating), completed reservation form, and trip payment.


Notes:  This is great trip for divers and non-divers.  We will have our tremendously fun pot-luck dinner on Saturday evening. Bring a dish that will serve at least 10 people (more details, suggestions and sign-ups will be emailed to participants prior to trip). Everyone works up quite an appetite on the water all day.  

Please compress/pack your boat gear for easy storage and handling.  Bring your own lunch, snacks, water, drinks in a small cooler (or if you only have a larger cooler, plan on sharing it with others as space is limited on the boat with all of the dive gear.) 

Several of us will arrive on Friday to set up camp and then have dinner at the lodge restaurant.
Sign-up now so you don't miss out!
