Deadline

Maximum capacity of 12 people on the 10Ď x 30í double decker pontoon boat.  The BGDC has reserved ONE pontoon boat.  If trip sign-ups exceed the boat capacity, another pontoon boat will be reserved IF IT IS AVAILABLE.  So, please sign up now to ensure you have a spot on the boat. 

A COMPLETE sign-up includes:  current membership (or guest of current member that is participating), completed reservation form, and trip payment.

Notes:

This is great trip for divers and non-divers.  We will have our tremendously fun pot-luck dinner on Saturday evening.  Bring a dish that will serve at least 10 people.  Everyone works up quite an appetite being on the water all day.  Bring your own lunch, snacks, water, drinks in a small cooler (or if you only have a larger cooler, plan on sharing it with others as space is limited on the boat with all of the dive gear.).  Also, if you don't want to fool with bringing breakfast items, many of us drive over to the Park Lodge for breakfast before heading to the boat dock.  Sign-up now so you don't miss out!
