Notes from Bill:

Lake Rawlings 6/28-30
Some of this may be redundant but we are planning to dive Thursday afternoon , then 4 dives on Friday and 2 dives Saturday. We will do a night dive either Thursday or Friday – or both if there is enough interest. I need liability releases and signatures on the group log ahead of time. Call me 301-707-8752 to set up a time to do this. The release you can fax to me 240-522-0104. Remember to bring your c-cards. We will do OW checkouts and the Advanced course these 3 days. We have enough time to get in all the dives- even if anyone can only be there 2 days. If you are going to take the advanced course let me know and I will get course book to you.

The Lake Rawlings caravan will leave Burger King on Industrial Blvd at 0700 hrs on 6/28. We usually stop before getting to I-95 for pit and eat stop. Will arrive Rawlings around 1200-1300. I will already have everyone registered in if I have your paperwork before 6/20. If you need to rent equipment email me and I will set it up. Prices are on the Lake Rawlings website, but remember we will get at least a 20% discount as the group. I am assuming that everyone will rent tanks. They have 80 and 100 cu ft. The 100’s are steel and have different buoyancy characteristics. You need less weight with them. This is part of the AOW we will teach. For Rawlings extra gas is not an issue but it will be for deeper dives in Florida so for those going on that I recommend the 100’s. If you cannot commit till after 6/20 then Spotty will have blank releases and we will add you to the group roster and sign you in at the lake. I will keep an accounting of each person’s expenses and you can reimburse us at the end of the week. For accommodations there is the Nottoway Inn about 3 miles for the lake 804-478-4421. Let them know you are diving with Western Md divers at Rawlings (doubt it saves you any money). For this room you pay yourself. The other option is a cabin on site at Lake Rawlings. Reserving this is done on the LR website and for 4 or more people it is less expensive than the hotel but more cramped. Easier logistics for early AM and night dives. Ok that’s about all for now but if anyone has questions call or email me. I think we are going to have a big group and a LOT of fun.
