POSTPONED: SWS Underwater Golf Ball Clean Up Tourney
« on: December 14, 2016, 08:08:19 AM »
More details to come but wanted to post this up to save the date of Saturday 1/28/17.

I'm working with the Pebble Beach Company folks to figure out logistics and prizes...

Should be a good time, and give folks who use the SWS area a chance to help do our part to keep it clean.

 :)

Sincerely,

Jim

I say free and scuba both allowed together...no diff really...most of the balls I have seen have been in shallow around arrowhead point...

To me the main goal is to get as many balls off the bottom and out of the water as possible...the comp/tourney aspect is just to make it a little more fun, and to give us an excuse to get together and challenge ourselves to see who can get the most.

 :)

Sincerely,

Jim

I totally agree hope my questions did come off rude they were not meant to be. I agree sounds like a good time for a good cause and it is definitely needed. I have dived over and it is littered with golf balls

Sounds like fun - I've got a little hole already scouted with a pile of balls.  It's a place where the current seems to push them into the hole.  I had alway been thinking of cleaning it out just for fun. Now there's a good reason.

I'm going to be in pacific grove that week. I might try to join in on the fun. Is it worth bringing a gun along? If the fan will let me dive, they will want me to come home with dinner. :-)

I'm tempted to make a trip out of it if the weather is nice.  But would have to shoot some fish  at some point because it's tough to eat golf balls

Stoked some of you guys are interested!

Should be fun, and I am excited to get a chance to help clean up an area that I frequent so much diving, fishing, kayaking, playing with family and friends.

Definitely worth bringing a gun!! I have found tons of Lings, cabs, grassies, and monkeys etc in shallow in the areas where I think most of the balls will be...

Would not be surprised at all if some really nice fish were seen/taken while looking for golf balls.

Here are a few pics I have handy of fish I have taken in shallow in areas where I have seen balls...

 :)

Sincerely,

Jim

Awesome Chuck!

Even if rough we should be able to work the north side of arrowhead point in the shelter of the cove...

Not a golfer so I assume they are worth something.
