Is there a phone or email contact for the organizer(s) available? I don't have facebook and that looks like the only platform for communication on this one. I'll be in CA from Australia in October and I think I can make this comp. No idea what I'm doing but would be good fun to participate.

I like how you are the first one to volunteer to do nothing. Must’ve learned that in the coast guard.

I apologize. I was just answering based upon DFW limits, not contest rules. I don’t know what the rules are.

I'm literally going to text you my wife's # so you can explain that to her! She opted us into doing something called a "Jack and Jill" baby shower which is guys and girls come. The only good thing is that most of the guys that are coming, I've taken them spearfishing before, so we might do a spear trip on Sunday after the shower.

I'm also in with a +1.

So it's only purple urchins we're allowed to collect, and not red urchins, is that right?
