Club dive MOVED TO REDONDO! September 28th, 2013!

Post by Penopolypants » Thu Aug 22, 2013 9:15 am

What: Club Dive!
Where: MOVED TO REDONDO
When: Saturday September 28th, 9:00 a.m.!

I will have the barbecue in a Subaru (grill, tables, cooler, popup canopy, utensils, plates,etc.). I will be bringing burger patties too.

Please bring a dish to share, such as potato salad, casseroles, desserts, or a packet of hot dogs, buns, burgers, etc.

The weather is usually pretty good this time of year, but a popup canopy might be nice if it rains. Edit: It's going to rain, please bring a popup if you can. Also bring: sunscreen, water, a chair for surface intervals, your dive gear, and your meet and greet face!

Looking for new buddies? Be there! Always wanted to put some avatars to some faces? Now is the time! Want to try out some gear, like a different type of fins, or a bp/w, or a different tank? Let me know, and I'll wrangle up some gear for you!

This is a "Big Buddy" dive, so if you are a "Little Buddy" (a new and/or inexperienced diver) and want to dive with a "Big Buddy" (a more experienced diver), let me know and I'll set you up. If you're willing to be a Big Buddy let me know that too!

A map to the dive site can be found here:

We'll meet at the parking lot across from the pier, NOT the one across from Salty's:

Woohoo, diving!

I'm sure you'll get over the dismay in that nice clear and warm water :)

Boo! You should totally skip that trip to dive with us!

J/K, of course. Have fun!

I think I will try to make this one but it is far away to tell yet. I believe if you dont have the Pass it is like $10 entry fee, but dont quote me on that one. I have yet to dive this site for some time since the new reef was put in. Would be nice to see how it has changed. Who knows maybe I can drag the non diving family down for a day.

Yes, it is $10 to park if you don't have the Discover Pass.

This reef is really fun. There are a LOT of rockfish on it, as well as striped perch and a bunch of little sculpins. Tunicates and sponges are starting to grow, and I found a whole colony of lamp shells the last time I was out there. It IS a bit of a surface swim . . . and surface current can be an issue if it's windy. On the other hand, there are barbecue facilities and picnic tables!

Indeed, Lynne, it's definitely the bee's knees when it comes to hang out spots! Even if you don't want to dive it is a lovely place to spend the day.

Danee and I are interested in coming. We will have to see what comes our way as we get a little closer to the date. We have AOW classes coming up that might interfere. Will let you know when I can.

It's on my calendar, would love to meet more of the NWDC people, but a little too far out yet to see if it's possible.

I'll be one of those little buddy divers.

I think I'm available that weekend. I'm happy to be a big buddy, but I'll need some pointers on where to head for the goodies at this site.

I am going to try and make this one. I will be doing a port hardy/gods pocket trip the following weekend for a week. But will try to make as well

I have a handful, not many, and I'm not sure of the sizes off the top of my head. I'll take a peek when I get home tonight. Calvin has some other club related gear that he's supposed to hand off to me at some point.
