Lynn,

I will be of no help with where to have the HH, as I usually just bypass the Twin Cities on my way north. Look forward to seeing you and everyone else that shows up. Hopefully the Wench will be one of them, I think she could handle one weekend in MN.

Once the place for the HH is decided upon, I will post it to a web site that the local divers down here have.

Excellent, thanks Keith.

Any suggestions on what kind of place you'd like to go to? Music, no, dive bar :fish2: , close to the Mermaid?

Being able to get food at HH is my only request, but it might be easier to draw people after the show if it is close to the Mermaid.

Looks like WW won't be able to make it and it's not good timing for most folks. Please let me know what would work for you in March or April? Weekends? Times? Venues?

Also - there are a couple new MN divers - Cessna180 and SeaLioness. Please let us know if you could join us. It'd be great to grow this group and maybe do a couple local dives this summer.

We have had our first response to our creative marketing of this HH! :thankyou: I received an email in the Angels mailbox, asking us to "count me in" :

Thanks for planning this!
Sounds like a great idea and a great time! :D

Michelle C


Lynn, go ahead and add Michelle to the "Who's Going" list. I replied, and told her to look for Lynn, our MN HH Planner, and that you would introduce her around to the others that show up.

Excellent! I'll be happy to introduce her around. It'll be great to see a new face. Not that Keith and John are old ones... :sweetie:

I was going to wear my mask and fins :D but the t-shirt is a better idea. (Victoria - is there a dork icon?) I have one from Bonaire (t-shirt, not icon).

We're picking up steam. A friend of mine, Theresa, is hoping to join us. She got her OW over the winter and is looking forward to doing some local diving this summer.

Looks like it might be Keith and a bunch of women - Poor Keith. :lmao:
