When: Saturday, June 14th
Where: Orange County, Gather at Laguna Sea Sports in Laguna Beach
Hosam from Laguna Sea Sports has been nice enough to offer us a place to gather at Laguna Sea Sports for our BBQ, while Heisler Park is still under construction. He has chairs and tables that we can use. He will even let us use his propane BBQ. (I'll bring a bottle of propane, so we don't use his.)
We did this for our October 2007 and February 2008 Wrinkles event and it worked out very well for us!!
Anytime you get a chance to visit Laguna Sea Sports, please ask for Hosam and thank him for letting The Dive Matrix use his place to gather for our Laguna Beach events.
For a complete list of all of the Wrinkles dives for the 2008 calendar year, see this thread:
What is the Wrinkles Dive?
This is a monthly gathering of all divers and non-divers in SoCal who can make it. It's a lot of fun involving diving, eating, socializing and sometimes even camping!
It all started when our SoCal member, Wrinkles, mentioned to a group that she dove with that it would be really fun to be able to get together at least once a month. Pasley, took off with the idea and announced the first "Wrinkles Dive". The rest is history!
It's open to everyone of all skill levels from "I'm not certified yet" to "Do we really have to dive the Andrea Doria again?"
We've found this to be a great way to meet our fellow divers locally and many new dive buddies have been found though these "dive soirees".
