A little update from Josh on the event,

Hey guys,

May 26th is rapidly approaching.  These are some things that divers should bring if they have them...... #1 is your CA fishing license. No other license or permit is needed but you do need a fishing license.

Please tell your divers that if they have one or more of these items please bring them;
Collection bags,
SCUBA tanks,
float lines,
safety sausage or small floats,
kayak,
5 gallon buckets,
small rock hammer,
three prong garden claw,
pole spears.

I'm trying very hard to have find a portable CDA compressor so we can fill tanks there but if that doesn't work we will have to shuttle the tanks all the way to Rohnert Park or Santa Rosa to refill.  Please bring as many tanks as you can. 

I've been in contact with DFW enforcement.  The debrief on Saturday will be mainly what is legal and what is not.  At this point, enforcement is completely fine with us crushing the urchin in the water so long as we are using them for something, ie. attracting fish for spearfishing or photography.  Each persons daily limit will still apply but 20 gallons of crushed urchin is a lot of urchin.  If your group would prefer to collect we will have kayakers to exchange their full bags for an empty one.  There have been a lot of questions of what we will do with the urchin.  I have a property owner in the area that will use them as compost.

Thank you for helping to promote this event and make it a success.  We will dive rain or shine.  If the water is rough we will relocate the dive to Fort Ross but we will still meet in the parking lot of Ocean Cove at 8 to debrief.

See you on the 26th,
Josh Russo

If that's how the prizes are determined I'm going to do my best to roll through and drop a couple Lincons.
