SHOW STATUS:

 

Hey gang... well by now many have heard and I'm still shocked...that BTS has been cancelled from March and rescheduled to Oct 2020.

 

 Attached File  BTS Notice.pdf   41.67KB   2 downloads

 

  • So we won't see our great members and friends in the NE and those who fly to BTS to see us and help the show
  • We won't get a chance to help a great organization raise funds for many worthy causes
  • We won't reconnect with travel, gear and merchandise suppliers to bring you even more fab deals and trips
  • We won't get a chance to tell so many new people about our amazing group of fun, safe and fab divers!

 

I am quite saddened but know that good things come out of ALL challenges.

 

LOOKING FORWARD:

 

So in the next week we will see if we are able to make the revised Oct date otherwise we will be back in NJ in Oct 2021!

 

A SURPRISE:

 

And since one of the new themes of this ongoing emergency is "VIRTUAL READINESS"  make sure you watch for our newsletter due out Monday the 17th with how you can still participate in BTS 'virtually' as well as win free travel, merchandise and save $$ on oh so important dive insurance and MORE!!!

Hey Gang...we'll be at BTS again in March 2020 so come and join us at the country's LARGEST SCUBA SHOW March 27-29, 2020!!! It's so good it's worth flying in for! And of course if you do you can get FREE ENTRY into the show for 3 hrs of help either at the show or at the SD Booth! We need your help to be at this show as we could not afford to do it without giving volunteer help to the show in exchange for a cheaper rate! So plan to be there and plan to help where you can!  :thankyou:

 

Check out dive gear vendors, travel vendors, local dive shops and of course SINGLEDIVERS.com! The event will have HUNDREDS OF BOOTHS!!

NOTE: We will also help people find rooms at the show that we can all share the price of. Some members book a room and offer to share and usually SD puts a few rooms on hold as well at the show rate. So let us know if you will want/need a room so we can start planning that as well.

FYI , the BTS link tells me everything I ever wanted to know about BTS .......except the hours of the show. 

It starts at 5 on Fri and goes continuous till 5 on Sun ????

Sounds like a rough show

I was considering another day to help-out if my schedule permits

The web site isn't very helpful on the hours is it?

 

The Facebook event lists these hours:

 

Friday 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Saturday 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Sunday 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
