    Default 2018 NSS-CDS Midwest Workshop Oct 20th!

    Hey guys! Just want to make everyone aware of the date and place for the 20-8 Midwest workshop.

    Oct 20th 2018
    Hampton Inn St Robert MO

    I will have more information in the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to having everyone out again and planning for a great event. The obvious change to location of the workshop was based off suggestions of having it closer to the caves. The Hampton Inn is 9 minutes from Roubidoux. We've been pretty fortunate with good diving conditions in the past and I'm hopeful we can get lucky this year too.

    We will be working with Odyssey Scuba and Y-Kiki for air and trimix fills as well as any rentals for folks that fly in. Let me Bjorn Loftis or Bill Harrison know if you have any questions or suggestions. Looking for good speakers and presenters right now so if you have something cool to talk about give me a shout!

    Thanks guys!!
