Arrow ANNOUNCING - the World Cup Invitational Bluewater Meet - July 6-10, 2009

Here we go again - GR are you out there?

Announcing another great tournament by our friend Dennis Haussler:

HOLD YOUR BREATH!!!

The dates for next years World Cup Invitational Bluewater Meet will be July 6-10, 2009. Once again it will be held at La Ventana Mexico, with host Tim Hatler and his crew at Palapas Ventana, stepping up for another year of excellent hospitality.

The competitor list is already forming with a good mix of top comp divers, and new talent. Bernie Finnerty, James McCollum, Ian Puckeridge, GR Tarr, Brian Head, Max and Carlos from Brazil, the McGuire brothers, even the young gun squad from colorado are in!!!

The meet is a CASH purse for 1st and 2nd place, and the sponsor list is top notch, with gear from some of the best companies in the world! Diving last year was outstanding, with a wide variety of fish, and good weather, so we will cross our fingers and hope for similar or better conditions.

Cost is all inclusive, except transfer, air, and alcohol, so if your interested, contact me at dennis@20fathoms.com, and I'll shoot you the info.

You can see the results and stories from the last years at www.20fathoms.com/worldcup.

There are options for coming early, or staying late, so come on down and take part in what is becoming the Bisby of the bluewater world. Come early and hunt the reef for those tackle busting pargo, and enjoy the beauty and excitment of this World Class event!

Attendance is limited to first 30 divers.


Best Regards

In honor of a truely manifacent women and Great Spearo who recently past away... Bonnie Row who was one of the original competitors of this meet... I will be returning to this tournament not only to compete.. But to also place a small memorial at the very spot where I took this photo of her and the only bait ball I have ever seen...

Re: ANNOUNCING - the World Cup Invitational Bluewater Meet - July 6-10, 2009

Hi Dennis,

It killed me that I missed the fun in '08, and I would like to join in for '09. My concern is that I don't want to take a seat from a high level competitor. I am a 50'/1:30 hunter, and a really lousy shot (drives me nuts, but I keep working to improve)... it would disgrace me to miss one of those beautiful wahoo when you are there to see my lame shot.

If you don't sell all 30 spots, count me in!, but I'm sure that will not be a problem. Barring the "open man" entry, what is the chance of coming down to help as Support Crew... I am a willing and capable worker, tequila drinker, and all around positive influence.

As last year, you are invited to Loreto either before or after the Open... I know the reefs as well as anyone around, my finely tuned Panga is always raring to go, and you are welcome to the use of our guest Casita.

Your welcome to come, 50' and 1;30 times is good enough to shoot fish.
PM me and we can talk about it more. best to contact me at dennis@20fathoms.com, as I don;t always punch on the SB.
lets talk

Hola Dennis & KC,

Thanks for the encouragement. OK then, I'm on. Can you send me something that details registration fees, where to send fees, dates, etc?

Maybe you guys can give me some tips to help me learn to shoot straight. I am opening a separate thread on the subject "Learning to Shoot Straight"... any ideas are much appreciated

Gracias, Bill Doyle

Heres the latest on the WC for this year.
The list of attendees is growing,
and the sponsors have stepped up.
I wanted to get the new flyer out, and let folks know we still have some room.
If your interested, please contact me at dennis@20fathoms.com, and I'll give you the scoop and answer any questions I can.

Baja Bum, I would contact Dennis directly, he isn't on SB very often, something about having a job and responsibilities, I didn't really understand him, my X-Box was really loud :-) his e-mail is Dennis@20fathoms.com If you are going to compete, show up to Palapas Ventana a couple of days early and let me know your secret spots!
