I just picked up the nice new trophies for this year's PBO.

They look just like these from last year.

Tony, my schedule doesn't let me participate this year but we went to come to the weigh-in. What's the cost to just attend the weigh-in?

Looking forward to it Tony.

DiveGal...It does not cost anything to attend the weigh-in or the awards ceremony. If you would like to eat, it is $15/ meal ticket.

Emily, it is best to buy them in advance on line so we have a good count for the food service. Go to www.spearwars.com to get the tickets. Tony

Last Year's event was a first. The venue is great with its air conditioned facility!

Check out the action last year at this link to get an idea if you did not make it.

The best photos of the hall are here at this thread:
