Happy Earth Day, BTW . . .

Okay, we KNOW it's a slow economy and we KNOW that the war in Iraq probably occupied a lot of your attention but we hope that we can get back to something that should be near and dear to every diver's heart . . . the financial health of our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber.

The Chamber Challenge has slowed down in the past week or so and we need your help to pump some life back into it. Every little bit helps whether it's a $25, $100, $500, or $1000 donation. And every dollar you donate goes directly to our Chamber, to keep it available on a 24/7/365 basis for divers in need.

Although we would hope never to have any of you truly need the services of our Chamber, the very essence of the word "community" means everyone coming together to help out everyone else. So, are you willing to do your part? The fine folks listed below were.

We start off with a big thank you to long-time Chmaber supporters Mike Emmerman and Pat Stockhausen who live in New York but recognize the vital role the Chmaber plays in Sotuhern California diving. How about those of you who live and dive here? As we're fond of saying . . . WHO'S NEXT???
