Re: The Art Pinder International Spearfishing Championship -Memorial Day

Regular Check-in starts at 8 am, following with an invocation to all the divers. Thereafter the "start" signal is given so the teams can begin competing.

The No Limit category must check in at the Blue Wild Sunday between 1pm and 5pm.

Weigh-in begins at 4:01pm.
