Special thanks to Patti of International Scuba that won the Best Represented Dive Shop for the 8th 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, YUM! We would also like to thank each and every person that attended the event as you are the reason we do it!
