Mark your calendars and save the weekend of October 14/15 2017 for a vintage dive get together in Monterey! This will be a fun event for left coasters to meet and dive together. It will take place at San Carlos Beach (Monterey breakwater). This dive in will be informal and minimalist and everyone is welcome. This event will hopefully start a beginning to get West Coast vintage divers together for once. I'm hoping to make it an annual event. Plans are to set up in the grass area above the beach. I know that the East Coast guys get all the fun so here's a chance for Calif. vintage diversI to finally get together. If anyone is interested in attending give me a shout out. I know it's only two months out, but it's a start. So far we have a small group going but the interest is climbing. One will be diving his Kraken DH. Monterey has great kelp diving as well as sea otters and such. Give a howler if interested or suggestions.

Sounds like a blast but unfortunately I have a previous commitment that weekend. I will be in Monterey tomorrow night (Thursday) staying at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa On Del Monte Golf Course. I'm flying up tomorrow for a business meeting on Friday. I'll be available if any one in the area wants to have a drink at the bar and swap vintage diving lore. Mark

Hello Mark-
It just so happens that I'm driving down today to take grandkids to Santa Cruz Boardwalk tomorrow. I might be able to get away tonight to meet you for a drink at your hotel. I'll PM you my number so we can get together tonight and swap sea stories.

Had a nice visit with fishnbeer Jerry last night. We know a lot of the same people and shared a zillion dive stories. Good to finally meet you Jerry. Had fun. We will do a dive together one of these days. Mark

I'd like to attend Saturday October 14th if I may. I just completed my first DH ocean dive (McAbee) with my DW Mistral a few weeks ago and I plan to bring it.

I'm also working on a Phoenix/HPR/DSV build right now and will bring it if it's done in time.

it will be great to have you join our event at Monterey. So far we have approx. 7-8 vintage divers planning on attending. It will be a very informal event. I plan on bringing my set of triples, twin 38's, twin 50's, 72's, and assorted DH regulators. It will be a fun weekend of vintage gear diving. I will PM you with some details.
