    Cave Diver's Forum 1st Anniversary Social

    The CDF becomes one year old this July 2002. To celebrate this anniversary, the Cave Diver's Forum is sponsoring a social at Ginnie Springs Outdoors, on the 20th of July. ( Midwest divers, unable to attend this social in Florida, have their own social at Roubidoux. Contact Marvin Zaske at zdiver@misn.com .)
    We have the Devil's Eye Pavilion reserved all day. This is the pavilion closest to the river. Remember you can dive right up to midnight... We solicit your input, since, after all..... this is YOUR site and YOUR social. Please email Mr_Social@Cavediver.net (James Hurley) if you want to help or have any good ideas, suggestions or comments.
    Picnic items are being donated by some cave diving organizations and individuals, and we will have some giveaways from others, like Cave Diver's Forum T-shirts (the first ever). If your organization wants to help make this social a success, please contact Mr_Social@Cavediver.net.Tentative Menu:

    Gloves for my DUI suit

    I sometimes wear gloves in MO. My last dive I didn't, and it probably saved my life. See this thread: http://www.cavediver.net/forum/showthread.php/33907-Not-able-to-breathe-during-a-cave-dive
