I know of at least two other individuals that will be gunning for the biggest oapies they can find so that's going to be a popular strategy...

105, 104, 102.5 were the top three spots!! A lot of good diving going on in this club. I went with errin and we worked hard for 4 fish apiece. un fortunately that was only good for 4th and 5th place, as the other guys had 5 each. Quality diving, hats off to all involved-it was a ton of fun!!

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

Amazing tournament everyone. Great fish, Great friends, Great food and an amazing way to spend a day diving with good buddies and then enjoying another perfect day at the beach in the paradise we call both Santa Barbara and HOME!!!
Pics to come, most certainly. This was the tightest contest I've ever seen between some incredible divers and a super fun club! Thanks to everyone who participated, sponsored, supported and/or gave their sig.other a hall pass for the day to compete with us crazy clowns!! Can't wait to pass the torch and be able to actually compete again!!! HAHA...
