June Fling - CHUM trip to the Flower Gardens

Discussion in 'CHUM Dive Trips and Events' started by Earl Grey, Feb 5, 2017.

    Sure, it has been a bit cold lately and everyone is thinking about the Super Bowl (or avoiding it). But now it is time to start thinking about those summer dive trips and the annual CHUM trip to the Flower Gardens. As always, positive thoughts for good weather!

    The format for the weekend will follow the normal Fling schedule starting with boarding the Fling on Friday night June 2nd, dive Saturday 6/3 (up to 5 dives), dive Sunday 6/4 (up to 2 dives) morning and then head back to Freeport. We have spots for 9 divers + our julie, Earl Grey. Feel free to reach out with any questions also see the Flower Gardens primer here.


    The Fling website is http://flingcharters.com/

    Directions to the dock are on the Fling's contact page at http://flingcharters.com/contact.asp

    When:
    On June 2nd, early boarding begins at 7:30 pm. The dock space will be needed for unloading from the previous trip, cleaning and restocking so be sure to give them some room and not arrive and unload earlier than 7:00 pm. We return to the dock on Sunday, August 21st between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. Click here for the the address to the dock.

    Where:
    Flower Gardens - Saturday 2 morning dives on the West Bank of the Flower Gardens, 2 afternoon dives on the East Bank and 1 night dive. Move to Stetson Bank during the night and make 2 morning dives on Stetson before getting underway for Freeport. As an FYI, this is the usual Fling itinerary but as with all dive trips, the sites are subject to change on the spot.

    Cost:
    $585 Tiger Sharks ($603 via Paypal or credit card) and $620 ($639 via Paypal or credit card) for Nurse Sharks (includes a 1 year Tiger Shark membership). Nitrox is $65 ($68 via Paypal). Included in the cost are tanks, air, meals and drinks - soda and beer are an additional charge. Please note that we assume all divers are using Nitrox, so the payment for Nitrox has been included in the "first payment" subscription. If not planning on using Nitrox, please let me know.

    If not Nitrox certified, please consider it prior to this trip as it requires repetitive deep dives.

    Note: payments are only refundable in the event of trip cancellation or if there is someone else to take your place on the trip.

    Deposits:
    March meeting - March 16 - Tiger Sharks $355 ($367 via Paypal or credit card), Nurse Sharks $360 ($372 via Paypal or credit card)
    April meeting - April 20 - remaining balance

    Payment Method:
    By check: payable to CHUM, handed to the Treasurer or mailed to CHUM (P.O. Box 980573, Houston, Texas 77098),
    By PayPal/credit card: Here's the PayPal link - we can scan your credit card at a meeting.

    Enrollment for Tiger Sharks is now open so snap up your spot now - it will open to Nurse Sharks the last week of Feb.
