Hi Martin, I'm just getting back into my spearfishing and free-diving and having recently activated my account here would love to get involved in 2018 if pos. If its restricted by numbers then not a problem, maybe i could offer my services another way to alleviate the pressure. I still remember the Halloween party you put on for the kids a couple years ago at your house, it blew my mind let alone the kids, my oldest still remembers the Didj's.

Pierre?
We are restricted to the number of spear fishermen in the water but not for social activities or especially for help with the weigh in!

So here is the present situation, we have 20 registered divers for the competition & 5 in reserved 'should a place become available'.
Based on previous years, we normally end up with 15-16 divers on the day so having 5 in reserve should definitely give us a full team of 20 in the water!
In answer to pm enquiries ... please ask any questions on this thread as although I am the main organiser, I welcome any suggestions or help.
However there are reasons for restricting the numbers, mainly safety in the water but also for the catering side as it is already on the limit for me and Sarah planning for 30 folk on the Sunday evening! Also finding good restaurants that can cater for 20+ without paying deposits or paying too much for the food.
However, if we have another five folk who want to join the socials, weigh ins & prize giving or help with filleting fish & setting up the garden... then I will welcome the help.
