2011 Big ab and Ling comp in Manchester RFA fundraiser
« on: January 06, 2011, 10:20:15 AM »
I wanted to put this up so that you all could mark your calenders and plan for it.

From Tino about the 2011 Big and Big Ling comp RFA Fundraiser in Manchester.

5th Annual Big Ab Big Ling Dive Event, June 11th 2011, Manchester KOA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok,
So I have been fielding e-mails and calls daily about when next years event will be held so I figured I would make the formal announcement.

This years event will be held June 11th, in Manchester CA, at the Manchester KOA (same as last two years).

I had to bump the date out due to previously scheduled events at the KOA, and hopefully we will see some better weather.
Reservations are already being made for cabins and tent sites so get them while you can. Last year they were all booked by March.
The rules will pretty much be the same and the event will be even better with more sponsors and tables for product displays.

I was going to limit the event to 100 divers but have decided against it.
This is one of my favorite times of the year regardless of how hard it is on me. I love getting so many great divers/people in the same place at the same time.
Make sure if you plan to attend you stick around for the group dinner that night. The event is fun but the dinner is the BOMB!!!
Hope to see you all there...

2011 event web site will be up some time in January so stay tuned...
and YES Amadeo Bachar will be doing the artwork for the shirts and hoodies.

Trying to sign up for this comp, is there a link set up yet?. I have campsites reserved, but wanted to sign up early enough so I can get in on the sweatshirts. Does anybody have the link?

I registered Jo and I last night we have had a cabin for months can't wait to get there.

I hope do do a lot more diving this year as well.  I may start this weekend. ;) Wife wants to camp and crab at bodega so I will see if I can get a little me time to get in the water as well.

This just in from Amadeo

11 more days until the shirt orders will be closed. May 20th is the date that I need to get final numbers in. After that there is no guarantee you will get one at the event.

Register and reserve your shirt and hoodie at the BABL 5 site Tino put up. http://www.bigabbigling.com/

Thanks for posting the update up Matt.  I would not find this thread on here or I would have done it.  Here's the artwork for the event shirt.

Just a reminder guys.  Deadline to guarantee getting a shirt with your event registration is going to be the end of this weekend.  I'm going to send the numbers into the printer bright and early Monday.

Thanks for supporting one of the best events on the north coast.

Is the closure of the Manchester State Beach going to affect this at all?
