We were in town again for the 4th of July and I really enjoy this event. This year, there were 48 divers. I dove with Alex and Denny and had a good dive. Alex was very experienced. Denny had some new equipment and was struggling with buoyancy. We went counterclockwise around the lake. We got separated from Alex and then Denny and I used a buddy cord.
They did the prizes again this year and there were several masks, regulator bags, (2) dive computers and for some reason a lot of flashlights and dry boxes.
