Saturday dive! Lake Minnewanka?

Hey boys and girls of Calgary!

Jon here. Are we still going to Minnewanka on Sat.? James I guess its just you and I. Can we take the WRX? Its such a cool car. I'll pay for some gas and, oh yeah, your lunch! haha

Talk to you soon. Our logo is almost unreadable.

I may have to work can we go first thing? Also I told wilf I would meet him at Lindsay at 9pm for a couple hours of training, come join and show us those sweet new flippers.

Logo looks awesome, but I like the vertical diver one better.

We had this discussion yesterday! I though you like the horizontal guy. Are you just trying to make my life miserable? haha

You have to work!!! Grr.....Lindsay it is then.

Go on MSN....
I know I change my mind hourly. I think you were right the descending diver looks more dynamic...

Also had a couple people tell me they really like it (I'm a slave to public opinoin). Laugh Out Loud (LOL).

How about sunday morning for mini? I'm buying a new dive meter on fri I'd like to try out...
Just got an account and wanted to say that I have been waiting to find some people in Calgary who are into freediving. Look forward to meeting you with the club and all at some point.

Another freediver on the prairies

Love to meet you some time. James and my self train (or rather try to) twice a week, but since he is unable to attend alot of the time due to life (ie: he has one, I don't) I would love to meet you, maybe even train (we HOPE to be hosting a competition in March in Calgary, and in Vancouver West Regionals are in May, Nationals are in June (I think)). Anyways, we usaly screw around on Sundays at Talisman Center (Lindsy Park) during their two-nee swim (9 till 10 pm, no training, and we'd love to meet you.

*Sorry about the bad spellings. It's too late and I've tried some of these words a dozen times and they sill dont luk write two me.:cool:
I Lies. My Bad

James wants to use Sunday as our training day now, so Saterday will have to become our screwarround day. Sorry about the misunderstanding.
Sunday night training

I would like to set 3 days a week where we get together for training, but I never suggested Sunday be specifically for training. It just worked out that way last week.

We should try to have a get together here one night next week. Sign the club charter, find out from members what kind of training schedule they are interested in, what kind of diving our members want to do, and make a schedule around that.

I'll post on CAFA / Altasub a Talisman meet this Saturday...
I think you guys need a dive in Prince George... we could go play behind the Lumber mills and see all the fish with 3 eyes....

Should be in Calgary late Febuary - look forward to meeting you guys.

We're discussing having a dynamic w&wo fins / apnea contest early march or late march any chance you can time it to be able to compete? It will be a CAFA event...

If not, can't wait to see you, dont forget your fins :)
sure - let me know when - guess I should get back in the pool... and loose this X-mas fat.....

Still hitting the coast for spring break (feb 15 - 22) if any one is interested in joining up for a dive let me know - looks like Nanaimo for 2 days and maybe a day in Sechelt. Scuba mainly - but will try to get some freediving in (quest for halibut).
