    We had a vaguely similar group come before my local city council in Largo (for a completely unrelated issue). They allowed a group spokesman to have a significantly longer presentation time in lieu of each individual getting 3 minutes. I think that's a fairly standard thing to do in order to expedite council meetings.

    Just pick someone who is well spoken. At least in Little 'ol Largo, there was the capability to present slides/videos along with the speaker. The presentation is also simulcast on local TV. I'd have to guess the larger council over there probably has even better capabilities. Hopefully someone is working on creating a nice PowerPoint or something to go along with the discussion.

    Factual information, no. But an opinion from an out of state diver who will be traveling to West Palm (with an expectation to spend several hundred dollars in 2-3 days), specifically to dive BHB... that is a letter I could write.

    Do you have contact info for Jim Abernathy, Jeff Nelson or Dan Volker? They are among the ones to most likely provide you with concrete, first hand information.

    I suspect there are quite a few of us who used to travel there specifically to dive BHB whose tourist dollars will be missed.
