Thank you Marco...I am writing to show my "acceptance of the nomination." It is very cool that people enjoy reading my reports. Thanks for thinking of me!

Reason for Nomination: Diving for vermilion in my experience is very difficult, and these guys make it look easy. Carter even filmed while he was spearing, and made an awesome video (not included in the report) to forever remember those dives. These guys have a desire to dive like few others, and I believe that the majority of us can relate.

Re: Nomination Thread for Best Trip Reports of the Quarter Ended March 31, 2011

Unfortunately, after reading through all of the reports for the first quarter, the other top two that really popped out at me had the pictures missing. Both threads were from Sandy (C Monster), who always has consistently good reports, with consistently good fish...

http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=119576
and
http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=120931

These were seriously great reports, and should still be considered.
Whats the deal Sandy???! Leave your photobucket alone!

Edit: Tony, if Sandy cares to, would it be cool if he edits his posts to put the pictures back in?

Thanks Kirby,

I appreciate it. Sorry about the pictures, guys... I just figured that the posts were so old, that I pulled them from my photobucket. I like posting reports when I have the time. I enjoy writing about the ocean and the many, many adventures both me and my friends have had over an almost 40 year love affair with the ocean. God willing, I'll have another 40. I look at it as the halfway point... The ocean is a life journey. A life experience. For me and those who embrace the sea as I do, our sport isn't a hobby or something you do on the weekends for fun. It's a lifestyle... One to me, that is incredibly rewarding.

Sandy,

I never even thought about that since I always post my photos using the "Manage Attachments" function of the board, but please consider doing that in the future. That way they are there forever. Your photobucket account could be closed and your computer could crash, but the photos are in your thread.

At the risk of creating too much banter, all of which Tony will have to delete. How about nominating one of these posts? Do you still have the pics Sandy? You have some awesome trip reports.

I agree. Unfortunately January 1 to March 31 is just a slow time in California if you think about it. In SoCal the early seabass are in, but the season is just beginning, so everyone is super tight-lipped about it, the water is bumpy and the vis is poor. In NorCal the lingcod and abalone season haven't opened yet and although the vis is great in the Carmel area, the ocean is too rough to dive for weeks on end.

Thanks for the nomination and the comment, man. I'll "second" myself. Between your reports and Sandy's and Aussie's, I'm not sure I can stack up to the competition, but I definitely appreciate the recognition.

Hey Tony, what are the rules regarding editing the thread once its been nominated? For instance, those of us who film our dives will frequently post a report with just pictures within a few days of the dive so that the report is current for people interested in hearing how the conditions are, but when we find the time later on, we'll go back and take the day's video footage and integrate it into a montage of clips.
