CHAMBER DAY/EVE UPDATE (#1 - posted 3/26/06)

We’ve gotten off to a good start so far this year but we’ve got a long way to go until the finish line. And we can only do it with your help by getting you to sign up for Chamber Day, Chamber Evening, contribute to the Chamber Challenge, or buy one of our commemorative Chamber Day 2006 tiles. Full information on everything can be found at www.chamberday.org . And, after some delay, we’ve got our secure server up and running so you can either sign up on-line or call us at 310/652-4990 to get involved.

Here’s where we are on the various event aspects right now.

BOATS (sponsor):
Aquatica (Douglas Dive Club & Dive ‘N Surf) - Available
Bottom Scratcher (Open) - Plenty of spots available
Cee Ray (Reef Seekers) - About ¼ full
Flying Dutchman (Open) - Plenty of space
Great Escape (Open) - SOLD OUT
Island Time (Sport Chalet) - Available but filling
Magician (Sport Chalet) - Well over ½ full

Psalty V (Scuba Schools of America) - SOLD OUT
Sea Bass (Grant Graves) - Available
Second Stage (Scuba Schools of America) - SOLD OUT

The best bet for a sponsored boat is to call the sponsor directly. For an open boat (or any questions) call 310/652-4990.

Tables can be booked either through the sponsoring organization, the website (indicate what table you want to sit at), or through our co-ordinating store at 310/652-4990.

We’ll do a separate post in a day or so but right now (Sunday evening) we’re at $1520. We’ve got a long ways to go to beat the $23K we did last year but - with your help - we can do it.

We’ve already sold three full murals ($500 each) and some assorted individual tiles. These are great keepsakes and truly collectibles,. They also make nice gifts.

So that’s where we are overall. One thing we’ve noticed this year is that the Chamber Evening tickets are selling at a much faster pace than they have in years past. We don’t ever recall having this many tickets sold and accounted for (228 out of 400 available seats) this early on.

So what that most likely means is that if you’d like to make sure that you have a place at the table this year for Chamber Evening, don’t wait too long or you may find tat the event is sold out. We can only accommodate 400 divers (and even that’s pretty tight quarters) so don’t get left out in the cold. Take note of who the table sponsors are and be sure you’re sitting with your buddies.

This whole thing represents the largest single source of outside income for our Chamber as well as one time in the year when the entire scuba community gets together to work for the greater good. We appreciate your support in the past and hope to have many of you with us again this year.
