That is awesome Rkymtwy! What did you find out about a singles section where they list all the church and other singles groups? You are now christened the SD Colorado Connection!!! WOO!!! HOO!!! :teeth:

Couldn't find any of those type of listing in the Denver paper. I do have some other ideas and will focus on those after returning from Cozumel. There are these internet groups call "Meet Ups" so I'll look into those. I also belong to the Colorado Mountain Club which has social listings in the newsletters. I'm going to try to get a listing there. Just have to convince them that diving is actually related to mountaineering! They let the fly flishing group in...

Any other of my fellow Colorado divers have ideas...I would love the input.

I'd like to know if and when a happy hour will happen in FL next. I'm in the Sarasota and Orlando areas often. Tampa would work as well of course. Anyone?

:cool2: :dance:

Thanks Maria...we have folks in N. VA and a few folks in Central VA...so far. This might be a good chance to help increase our exposure to other divers about SD. For starters you can see what local dive clubs are in the area...do they have websites and/or message boards that you can post on. Or you can see if there are any message boards that cater to divers in your area...sorta like what WreckManiac is doing with NC WreckDiving...which by the way RichInNC and company have ALREADY discovered and posted about our SD happy hour. You can of course put the SD url and tagline in your signature on other boards that you belong to...and look for yahoo groups, aol groups for divers and several people have even put us in their dating profiles on the internet dating sites.

There is something called www.craiglist.com that has events for all parts of the world and even evite allows you to publish your events such as Happy Hours. We may not get lots of response the first time we do it...BUT...by getting it out there we'll have ongoing response!

Sound too difficult? It may help to do a team concept like NC and DC has done. One does the 'promotion' stuff and the other does the more social stuff.

And of course all these ideas have come from YOU all! But my favorite is what Ms Nextairel does...she just gets on ScubaRadio and plugs us ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! Go girl!!! -ww

Well here in Colorado we do have the Colorado Underwater Photographic Society (CUPS) we meet monthly for presentations and members social activities. Several of the members are single myself included. If anyone in the area is interested you are certainly welcome to attend and maybe we could get a SD social organized for this area. I think you can access my email in my profile here. Or just Google our website.
Thanks,
John

Hello SDer's! Its time for 2005 Social Hours and Dive In Days! Anyone want to sponsor one in your area???

I'm new, and returning, and I simply don't know, so what does it mean "Social Hours and Dive In Days"?
Olympic diving is a sport. Scuba diving is an obsession.

I wouldn't worry too much about the Dive In Days part, Dive_buddy, but if you are in interested in attending and/or arranging a Happy Hour (Social Hour) in your area, feel free to start a thread expressing your interest HERE.

:D

Now I think the idea of a Happy Hour on Catalina Island is an awesome one. I'll bet we could get Jamie and Wendi to come out for that one! And the diving... it can get pretty awesome this time of year! Of course you'd better hurry if you want to observe the awesome annual squid orgy!
