    The SCUBA Show June 21 & 22, 2008 – Long Beach Convention Center

    I have always told myself that I would never attend the yearly SCUBA show that’s held in Long Beach.

    For many years I have heard the SCUBA show is a rip off – $8 beers, no equipment for sale and all the exhibitors are selling expensive travel packages; I can barely afford Catalina.

    But, after talking with some other divers, I have now heard the event referred to as “a blast.”

    “You see a lot of friends that you haven’t seen for a long time, you talk about your passion with other divers and watch cool movies,” Dive Bum Don said.

    Evil Jeff, I hear, is even going to be a bouncer at the event.

    And, unlike the beach dives that I frequent, the SCUBA Show apparently has fifty-percent women in attendance.

    I’m planning to go early Saturday and see the expo and movies.

    There are three Saturday seminars that I’m interested in attending:

    12 PM #112 – A Divemaster Shares His Secrets
    1 PM #21 – Southern California’s Beach Diving
    4 PM #24 – Why Divers Die

    Since this event relates to my ongoing professional Divemaster education, I’m going to write off the admission and liquid refreshments as a business expense.

    If you see me around, please say “Hi” and feel free to buy me a beer.

    1. $8.00 beers would turn me off too!
