Special thanks to Patti and Brian of International Scuba that won the Best Represented Dive Shop for the 7th time in a row! Their group always shows up in force and are a big part of the Polar Bear Dive. They also provided breakfast for everyone! We would also like to thank each and every person that attended the event as you are the reason we do it!
If you have comments, suggestions or any ideas that would make this event better next year, please contact me. These are just a few pictures and will post lots more asap. Feel free to save a copy and if you would like a high res copy, drop me an e-mail and I will be happy to send it to you.
