Re: Announcing The Blue Wild 2011

Roberto, are you coming this year? Would be great to see you and your lovely lady. It's been awhile.

The tournament is on Monday -- which is Memorial Day. It will make for a fun three day weekend of partying and diving!

Re: Announcing The Blue Wild 2011

The website is being updated every day, and it's pretty current....except for the Raffle List which should be posted within a week (stuff coming in every day!).

The 2011 Exhibitor List was posted a couple weeks ago, but we are still getting some sign ups, so we keep updating that too.

The 2011 Speaker Schedule was just posted....and here it is. We have the strongest speaker line up ever (William Trubridge, Martin Stepanek, Terry Maas, Stan Waterman, Manny Puig, Coast Guard Pilot/Rescue Swimmers, etc) and some very cool Workshops (Daryl Wong's band tying and bluewater rigging, Art Pinder's sling making, how to dive from a kayak, how to build a speargun, and more).

Pretty exciting if we say so ourselves!

Ballenita, I can't divulge it all at once, so I was leaving some of the best for last!

But I did add it to the list. You're the best! Thanks.
