From Corrine's Newsletter Write-up:

The date for our Laurel River Lake dive trip is Saturday, August 26th. We have two 25 pontoon boats reserved for the event.  Bring the family or bring a friend and enjoy a fun summer outing. If you have never been to Laurel Lake its beautiful. Surrounded by Daniel Boone National Forest, the scenery is great, with lots of small coves and inlets. Pack a lunch, grab your dive gear, sunglasses and sunscreen for a day on and in the lake.  We will be leaving from Grove Marina ( this year since we got such a good deal on the pontoon boats (2 for 1 deal).  Directions are on the Grove Marina website.

While many people will plan this as a day-trip, camping is available mile from Grove Marina.  The Forest Service oversees the Grove Campground - electricity, drinking water, flush toilets and shower facilities are available. The campground sits on a ridge above Laurel River Lake about 10 miles from Corbin, KY and 15 miles from Cumberland Falls State Resort Park (another option for staying overnight).

Mark your calendars now as August is shaping up to be a busy month for the Club.  The trip page is up; please take a minute to register (Note:  $10.00 is requested this year to cover gas for the boats).  This will be a great way to get wet and do a little diving in our own "backyard" and provides a check out dive opportunity.
