Well I think I've recovered enough to post a report. Everyone add their .02. :teeth:

WreckWench aka Kamala, Landlocked Dive Nut aka Tammy, Scubatooth aka Dan and myself all finally made it in by 9:30 pmish. I met Tooth and LLDN, but WW was too fast for me - she must have jumped off the plane and ran to the baggage claim; which is where we all found each other :lmao:

Friday started off with a bang - LLDN and I helped with unloading of the Treasure Hunt prizes (of which Tooth was put to organizing - got to luv a man with a computer and a spreadsheet! :teeth:

LLDN helped keep the exhibitors from blocking the loading/unloading ramp. :2cool:

WW put out fires and then helped me with exhibitor check in - thank goodness for FAQs :idea:

Saturday started out bright and early - Tolly aka George and cmt489 aka Michelle showed up and rocked in the booth!

Ch20Diver aka Chris and bottomtime aka Duncan came in and helped out as well....and of course we all went to the HH (where else would we go???? :cool2: )

Thank you all for all of your hard work! :teeth: We met lots of great people (no more apple thingies that WW has the bartender make!). Our feet may have hurt, but dang did we do a lot of laughing :twist: :P

Chris thank you SOOOOOO much for all the water and mints you brought in on Sunday - I think we were all parched! Special thanks for carting around both LLDN and myself when we needed a ride :teeth:

Until next year when we do it all over again! (glutton for punishment that we are) :lmao:
Thanks again everyone, you Rock!

Chris aka ch20diver you were a blast and sooooooooooooooo helpful in and out of the booth! Even the Montana stuff was FUNNY! :welcome:

Dorothy...aka Dolores when I had too many 'apple thingies' we had a great time meeting you at the booth, then the Happy Hour and later the show dance!

I just know we will have a great group of local diver gals...and guys doing the PNW thing SOON!

Chris and Lisa have offered to help get some local things going and Duncan being the smart man that he is offered to help the awesome chick duo with getting some local things organized. :taz:

Ron aka wavemaker actually from CA found us and spends a lot of time in the PNW and wants to do some diving and certainly joining into our HH's in both the PNW and CA! :welcome: (And he's LOTS of fun at dinner too!) ;)

Oh yeah...he like Duncan was smart enough to offer the dynamic chick duo all the help they needed! ;)

Michelle and George it was wonderful to see you and our soon to be newest member of SingleDivers.com....baby michelle/george now known as baby g-elle! Ya got your 'Bradgelina's and we have our own Baby G-Elle!'

Of course Tammy aka LLDN and Carol aka Sassi were the most tireless workers in the booth and at the show! If they were a awake...they were working! :dance: And our very own 'boyscott on steriods'.... Dan aka ScubaTooth was taking official show pictures, leading the Deep Ambitions program, and basically doing whatever needed to be done to help the show and SingleDivers.com be successful. (Can you say all the 'heavy stuff'!) :welcome:

If you missed the show...you missed A LOT! But there is always next year! ;)

Chris, if I ever get dry certified, you can bet I'll take you up on the extra bed, and you can be my personal dive guide to all the good spots in the Puget Sound! Nobody I'd rather have show me around in the waters up there. Hope you & Lisa make good dive buddies, and better Happy Hour planners!

Oh, and let's never forget the fantastic Washington Apple drink we were introduced to! I found the recipe, including the extra ingredient:

2 oz Crown Royal
2 oz Sour Apple Pucker
2 oz 99 Apples schnapps
fill with apple-cranberry juice

Use a highball glass and serve over ice, or shake with with ice and pour into small glasses for shots.

Excellent drink, right WW, Sassi & 'tooth?

I know there is a thread somewhere for drink recipes, so if someone knows where that is, feel free to copy this in there for future reference.

They were so good, I know they were bad....note to self; stay with the beer (unless WW puts one of those in front of me)

Well everyone Im back home, a day early for a couple of reasons, but for the most part I slept all day today(I didnt realize I was that tired).

The show was great and I had a ton of fun even if I was busier then a one-arm paper hanger at times. I got to meet people on SD that I hadnt met before (George your crazy but a crazy i can handle) I even had a couple of opportunities come up that I took full advantage of, so keep a eye out here on SD for the announcements I will be back next year and i will second Sassi in that Im a glutton for punishment.
