I must confess that all of us on the Chamber Day Committee are amazed and gratified by the initial response this year. Whether itís because o four 20/10 anniversary theme or simply that Chamber Day really IS the social event of the diving community is moot. The bottom line is that weíre starting off very strong.

For the first time ever, weíve had sponsor request for EVERY table at Chamber Evening. (This doesnít mean there arenít still seats available, just simply that the sponsorships for each table are already assigned.) Weíve started off very strong on the Chamber Challenge and are well ahead of last yearís pace. The boats are starting to fill up. And even though it appears the Flying Dutchman is running slow (only 11 divers so far), thatís actually ahead of last yearís pace which ended up being a record. So weíre in the pinch-me-Iím-must-be-dreaming stage.

So letís keep the momentum going. Remember that the monies we net from this event all go to help keep our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber on sound financial footing. And lest you think the Chamber isnít needed, I can tell you that there have been four cases that theyíve dealt with in the last four weeks alone.

Our Chamber is a vital safety net for the SoCal diving community. Your support keeps it strong. So get involved with one or more aspects of Chamber Day 2008. Hereís where we are as of noon on 3/21:
