CHAMBER DAY/EVE UPDATE #2 (4/10/06 - last posted 3/26)

We continue to make progress as we march towards May 3 and the annual fund-raiser for our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. 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 .

Your local shops, clubs, and boats should now have our official posters and we've got some postcards (with the Chamber Day logo) going out this week. And we're getting great reaction to the Flying Dutchman logo (http://www.reefseekers.com/Ken%20pages/FD_bevel_500.jpg) which is a take-off on the main logo. (Our personal favorite is the bony starfish skeleton.) This will be the image that'll be on the back of the Flying Dutchman t-shirt, available only to those who sign up for the Dutchman. As an added bonus, this year we're not only giving you the shirt (it says "Flying Dutchman crew" on the front) but we'll also throw in a poster. All this for your $85 donation. So get yourself signed up for the Dutchman before it . . . oh wait. It can't fill up. Unlimited supply and all that.

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

BOATS (sponsor):
Aquatica (Douglas Dive Club & Dive ‘N Surf) - A little over half full
Bottom Scratcher (Open) - About 1/3 full
Cee Ray (Reef Seekers) - About 10 spots left
Flying Dutchman (Open) - 20 so far - unlimited space (t-shirts & posters!!!!)
Great Escape (Open) - SOLD OUT
Island Time (Sport Chalet) - About 15 spaces left
Magician (Sport Chalet) - SOLD OUT

Pacific Star (Scuba Schools of America) - 6 spots left
Psalty V (Scuba Schools of America) - SOLD OUT
Sea Bass (Grant Graves) - Grant's in Cayman so we're not sure . . .
Second Stage (Scuba Schools of America) - SOLD OUT
Sundiver (Ocean Adventures) - 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.

Chamber Evening is filling up faster than it ever has before. We've also gotten more requests from groups for tables thane ever before. As a result of the increased demand, the Committee voted at the last meeting to add six more tables for the event. But that's the absolute maximum capacity. So if you want to go, make sure you get a hold of us before we sell out, as it appears we will do. Here where we are as of today:

CHAMBER EVENING - 460 seats available (353 sold, 107 left available)

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 update this one separately but as of 4/10 we’re at $6640. 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 eleven full murals ($500 each) and fourteen individual tiles. These are great keepsakes and truly collectibles. They also make nice gifts.

So that’s where we are. We'll keep you posted over the next few weeks and, as always, we thank you for your support.
