Just a reminder to please fill out the form below and send through your
deposit if you are interested in attending the prom trip. We need to make
camp site bookings on Monday so it would be ideal to have an idea for
numbers (and deposits) in by then.

Hard to believe it's that time of the year again - time to start planning
the annual *EPIC long weekend diving down at Wilson's Prom!*!
To sum up, the dive trip will be held over *Melbourne Cup Day long
weekend (3-6th November) *and will involve awesome diving with boulders,
swim-throughs, lots of marine life, seals everywhere, and if we are lucky
even dolphins and WHALES!!! Check out this youtube video
made of the seals. And also check out this article in The Age
how awesome the underwater world at the Prom is.
If you don't want to dive (but why wouldn't you???) or if the conditions
aren't suitable for diving there's heaps of amazing bush walks, beaches,
and overall social shenanigans. The Prom is about a 3.5 hour drive from
Melbourne and we camp at Tidal River. There are hot showers and flushing
toilets :) There are also other dive clubs down that weekend and on
Saturday night it is our turn to host the annual Scuba Divers Federation of
Victoria's BBQ and raffle (which means it's going to be awesome and you can
win some sweet prizes!!).
Please note there is also quite a lot of work to be done on this trip,
especially regarding launching our two ton boat by pushing it by hand into
a surf beach, filling tanks, cooking meals and such. This year since we are
hosting the BBQ so we will also need ALL HANDS ON DECK Saturday evening for
cooking, organising etc. Diving at the prom can also be quite challenging
in cold water (12-14C) and swell, please let me know if you are unsure of
your diving abilities and would like to discuss further.
*You will need to be a member of both MONUC and MASC for this trip*.
Estimated cost is around $400 for the entire long weekend, including
donations for boat fuel, boat use, compressor use, camping fees, and group
meals...excluding membership fees, gear hire and transport to the prom.
If you are interested, please complete the google form that can be found
are also requiring a *$75 deposit* to confirm your spot,* since campsites
require payment upfront. Once you complete the google form, please also
transfer your deposit to:

*Please include your name in the deposit description.*
Get excited!!! And let me know if you have any questions.
