    Let's get a little pre-Olympic warm-up going with our own Summer Games on Saturday, July 21st.

    That's right, the CHUM Summer Games are back, which means the CHUM Bucket is up for grabs again!

    Last year nobody managed to claim it. Let's see if someone takes it home this year!

    We'll be bringing back some classic Summer Games contests like CHUM-a-luma Ping Pong (a buddy team spoon race with ping pong balls) and "Musical" Platform, CHUM's u/w adaptation of musical chairs. Don't worry if you don't have a buddy, we can find you one once everyone's there.

    Opening ceremonies for the games (also known as “gearing up”) will take place at 9:00 am at the Blue Lagoon. Since we’ll need to enter the water as a group, please plan your preparations to be IN THE WATER at 10:00 am. (If you need extra time to get ready or have gear that needs to be tweaked, please consider arriving a little earlier).

    After the first dive, we’ll have an nice surface interval to give people time to refill tanks (there's a compressor on-site, $8 for an air fill), grab food (there's nothing close by, so be sure to bring what you want with you), etc.

    Keep in mind that you’ll need to pay the entry fees to the Blue Lagoon ($16, including tax). We have Shelter #7 reserved at Lagoon 1.

    Last year we had a lot of fun with this. Send me a PM if you're interested in joining the CHUM Olympic Delegation for 2012
