    I replied to this. Since Teca does not post on this board I will have to check with her when a date is finalized. She might be able to come.

    If we decide to do a night dive, will the operators have primary lights for rent? I'll pack a small light that would make a good backup, but it'd be nice not to have to lug a primary around.

    Good question. I hate to haul lights halfway around the world for one or two dives

    I've passed along the question, with the time change it might be a day or two for response.

    So the word is they do have 3 or 4 lights available at $4/dive.

    Personally, I don't really distinguish between primary and backup anymore. Bright high-lumen lights are coming in rather small sizes now. I use something like this.
    But I have come to where I don't want a lot of light so as not to scare stuff away. I also have my video camera and it's lights as backup.

    Do I need to bring my own boots? Or will that be part of the equipment rental? Also, did I receive a text from you saying ordering a team T-shirt or something? Sorry about not responding to your text earlier. I was coaching and then in an advance coaching training all week + weekend. Just got home tonight. Haven't had time to handle anything else. May I reserve 1 light for a night dive? Haven't had any night dive experience. Would like to try once if we are planning one. Thank you. (P.S. I will text you tomorrow if I hear from you.)

    WaterMonkee, I have already left for Taiwan at 11:40pm on the 3/5 so can not attend the meeting. Is there anything I need to be aware of?

    Hi McLot, that's a good choice. Due to my late arrival (5:30pm -> maybe out of Custom after 7pm), I have decided to stay close to the airport at Belmont Hotel Manila. When will you be back at the airport to meet up with the team?

    Todd, since I will miss the pre-trip meeting since I have left for Taiwan, please let me know what time and where I can meet up with the team. Thank you. :))

    I'll be back at the Airport (Arrivals) maybe an hour before the flight arrives or so. Everyone will need to clear immigration and customs and luggage before the shuttle.

    This trip will have a photo contest so stay tuned for those details, but in the meantime, you've got a place here to put your pics when you guys get back.

    Its not a malarial area fortunately. When we went to Botswana in 2010 had to take malaria pills. What a pain.

    Here's the scoop for the photo contest - pretty short and sweet.

    The rules are the usual suspects - everyone can submit up to 3, they can be topside or underwater, and the winner will get an extra submission in the annual photo contest.

    The voting will be the week of the 15th so you'll have until then to get them uploaded and submitted to me. But don't worry, I'll keep reminding you once you guys get back.:p I just wanted to plant the bug now that we want to see lots of pretty pics.

    Here are some of the forms for participants to fill. Please bring to meeting Thursday night, the airport Friday, or to Manila if arriving separately.
