Beneath The Sea ~ March 28 – 30th, 2008

30 03 2008

James, Steve, and I hit the road on Friday morning. We arrived in time for Jarrod Jablonki’s seminar, “Lessons Learned.” There were so many interesting facts about the Turner Sink/Wakulla connection, that were amazing to hear…alot of filling in of the blanks, as far as location, and where/how they made the link. An amazing presentation, and we were able to meet and speak with him afterwards. We then headed over to the Tech party, where we met up with some of our dive industry friends.. Doug Arnberg, Adam, Julien, Jeff Pauze… and the list goes on…

Saturday, we hit the show! We met up with many faces… some familiar, some new. Everyone was in good spirits, and it was good that we had so many people down that contributed. We met up with Anne and Harold as well!

Tony S did a remarkable job, building the booth. It took us a while to get it together!

We even had some friends pose with Spike!

Sonya Tittle, from Halcyon…

Lisa & Saila

Andy H and I…

Pir8 and Lottie…

We had a draw for some fancy prizes, that none other than Jarrod Jablonski himself, was kind enough to do the draws for us!

Steve and I ran into Doppler as well, as his booth was very near ours. He didn’t have much time to say hello, but I did slip him a candy bracelet.

We all headed out for dinner, and had an absolute blast (James has more pics of dinner!)…

After dinner, we headed back to our hotel in Morristown, parked the cars, and decided to walk to the store, for some bevvies! Myself, Steve, Jeremy, and Jen B picked up some coolies, and Kevin and Jen E joined us all for some laughs and giggles about the day’s events.

Sunday, we checked out some of the booths of other Ontario board members, as well as some local friends…

Jeff was hiding (and hobbling)…

We even had Susan Long of DUI pose for some fun pics with Spike!

Other cool stuff along the way…

…and packing up…

We had a long drive home, but were entertaining each other the whole way… Well.. except for the 60 minutes that I “rested my eyes.”  We crossed the border at about 1am, with Tony and friends towing the trade show booth. We had to stop in Gananoque, to pick up my car, then made the two hour trek back home. At 3am, my head beat the crap outta my pillow!!

It was a fantastic weekend! Tired, or not! I think I look like a deer in headlights, below…
