    If you're not on our September Flower Gardens trip, here's something else you can do on Sep 13th - The Dive Pirates annual Cutthroat Chili Cook-off and Underwater Scavenger Hunt at the Blue Lagoon. :cool2:

    For those interested in participating in the chili cookoff, set up, tailgate prep runs from 8:00 a.m. - noon.

    The Underwater Scavenger Hunt is from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. There are some great prizes, btw. We took home some pretty nice stuff last year.

    Starting at 12:30 p.m., those of us not cooking get to enjoy feasting on chili and voting for our favorites. Scavenger prizes and chili awards follow that.

    Fees for the chili cookoff and scavenger hunt are paid directly to the Dive Pirates and can be found and paid here.
    (Please note, this doesn't include entry to the Blue Lagoon, which will be paid on-site upon arrival.)

    This is always a heck of a lot of fun. It's a great way to get some leisurely (and possibly profitable!) diving in, taste a bunch of great chili, maybe win some prizes, hang out with your diving buds, all while supporting a great cause. (If you don't know what the Dive Pirates do, you can find that out here.)

    CHUM will be cooking a batch of chili. You're more than welcome to hang out with us, but it'd also be great to have some chili cooking competitors. Can you bring the heat? :fire:

    You mean that was how you guys act when you're SOBER??? Now this I've gotta see!
    I'll be there Thursday night. I'll even try to convince Kurtis "The Shark Whisperer" to come along. I'll tell him to bring chapstick.


    ...and I just upgraded to "Tiger Shark." Thanks for all the laughs!
