BIG AB BIG LING Dive Event May 1st, 2010

http://www.irishbeachhouse.com/Event...NTHOMEPAGE.htm

Ok,
I know this is a bit over due and I will have a PayPal link and website ARE UP and I wanted to at least announce the event.
4th ANNUAL BIG AB BIG LING DIVE EVENT
MAY 1ST 2010, MANCHESTER CA, MANCHESTER KOA CAMPGROUND
Same rules as last year, with the same great food, great people and same excellent sponsored prizes!!!
We have already reserved the group campsite as well as the event building but if you want to stay in one of the cabana's you better call early, ha ha.
Please e-mail me if you have any special needs or concerns.
This year will be the best so far and I hope we hit 150 entries, as we will have a complete Woman's, and Junior's division.
Stay tuned as I will have updates on sponsor info, as well as Preregistration and waiver forms very soon...
Hope to see you there....

2-21-10------UPDATE****************************

EVENT PRE-REGISTRATION PAGE IS UP AND HOPEFULLY RUNNING.

I am not the best at making web pages so if you find any errors please let me know.

Food will be served by Dave "the Dancing Bear" Whittington and crew. Dave is well known for his chilly and was a hit last year.
Amadeo Bachar will be designing the event logo that will be on the T-shirts and Hoodies.
Shirts will be available starting the day of the event. If you want a shirt and are not able to attend, please understand that they will not be available to ship out until AFTER THE EVENT.
Kabin's at the KOA are going fast so reserve them while you can. The group campsite is reserved and if you plan on bringing a trailer please contact the KOA for info on where you can park it.
Now lets get to talking about the important stuff...
Like the Home Brew that people plan on bringing...

Update 3/20/2010.......
Amadeo Bachar has finished this years event Logo and it is Bitchin.....


T-shirts are part of the preregistration only. Additional T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts can be purchased separately but if you do not attend you have to add $7 for shipping. Let me know if you have any questions...

************************************************** ************************************************** **********

****POSTED MESSAGE FROM EVENT MANAGEMENT****


You will only get a T-shirt if you PRE_REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT by APRIL 16th 2010.
Extra T-s may be available for an additional $20 but are not GUARANTEED.
.
All extra shirts are "first come first served" with a special table for Amadeo (with armed guards ) to distribute the remaining T's and Hoodies.

Since we have to put the order in so early this year I am having to guess on what to have available, not to mention the $2500 of my own cash to get the order rolling. So please be kind to Amadeo and myself. We are trying the best we can to make sure everyone gets a shirt.
After last year, I want to make sure people understands there are limits...

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, all proceeds go to the RFA and the California Fisheries Coalition. This year our goal is to raise $3000.
4/7/2010
Update***********************
We are half way through the Shirts and Hoodies we ordered and the order had ALREADY BEEN PLACED.
That means if you have not signed up and want a shirt, then you need to do so pretty quick. You can still register the day of the event when you get there, but I will not have a shirt for you.
Because when they are gone, they are GONE...
Please get the word out,
Thank you.

Update 4/19/2010-----------------------------------

Each raffle item will have its own Raffle Ticket Bin.
So if you only want to bid on the Sea Sniper Reef speargun you can put all your tickets in that bin.
Each bin will have a separate raffle where the sponsor (if available) will draw the winning ticket.
Raffle tickets will be $5 each with $20 getting you 5 tickets (1 extra) and $100 getting you 30 tickets (10 extra).
Remember this is all going towards our Northern MLPA efforts so dig deep for great prizes and an excellent cause.
The raffle will be held right after announcing the Tourney winners (1st-3rd in 5 divisions, Big Ab, Open Speargun, Open Polespear, Juniors (17 and under), and Womens).
So the raffle should get started by 3pm and end by 3:45pm.
You have to be in attendance for the raffle so if you have to leave make sure you give your tickets to someone so they can collect your prize (gotta have the ticket present).


***Oh and for the record, all forms of transportation on the water are allowed.
However, I will not allow anyone check in for someone else. If you take all day to get your boat in and out you might not make it to the weigh in on time. GPS time will be used and there will be no exceptions.
With the check in starting at 7:30am and check out at 1:30 sharp, that leaves you with 5 hours of diving and 30 minutes each way travel time.
That should be more than enough time to find your three fish, one per specie, and an abalone, then head back to the KOA to check out.
Check in, get your meal bracelet, weigh your catch and get some grub while we tally the results.
We should be announcing the results by 2:00-2:30 followed by the raffle.

Haha I was going to call you and ask when you were going to have everything up. I already knew about the campsite and everything from when I was there end of October. The front office lady recognized me from the last ones and somehow it came out that you had already reserved the site for the same time.

Woo Hoo third year in a row! I'll bring the hookers!

I can't wait! And this year I'm gonna hold on to the car keys so a certain "day tripper" doesn't lose them in the sand making us miss check in...
