WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT: 

This weekend is in memory of all divers we have lost over the years, and for some of us that know who PS is, it will always hold a special place. Join the Underwater Outlaws for the Two Jack Camping & SCUBA Weekend. Each camper must reserve, and pay for their own campsite. Go online at: Banff Reservations or phone Banff Reservations helpline: 1-877-737-3783.

 

CAMPING: A number of SCUBA divers have reserved spots together in Two Jack Main Campground, Loop 37. The group meals & campfire will likely be there. Watch for a dive flag. Most folks show up Friday and leave on Sunday.

 

COST: Each camper must pay their own camping fees but the event is free for Members in Good Standing and their guests. Annual club memberships ($40) can be renewed online or paid with cash at the event. NOTE: for liability reasons, you must be a member in good standing to dive with our club.

 

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME: Bring your C-Card. If you are new to the club we will make a point of making introductions. It’s a good social group. (REQUEST to long time members: please make a point of introducing yourself to the new folks and make them feel at home.)

 

DIVING After breakfast on Saturday we coordinate fun dives. Depending on where you want to go, you can dive Lake Minnewanka and/ or Two Jack Lake.

 

CAMPFIRE: Most campers gather 'round the group fire on Friday and Saturday evenings. Lots of laughs and tall tales. Watch for the dive flag.

 

PANCAKE BREAKFAST: 9:30 Saturday. Non-camping club members, please drive out by 9:30 and join us for breakfast before diving on Saturday. The Pancake Breakfast and Pot Luck dinner will be on Saturday in one of the campsites of the Two Jack Main Campground. Look for the Dive Flag.

 

POTLUCK DINNER: This dinner is the highlight of the weekend. Dinner is laid out at 7:00 pm sharp on Saturday evening. Everyone brings their favorite camping comfort food to share. It’s a wonderful meal with lots of bonding and storytelling over a truly amazing meal. The Pancake Breakfast and Pot Luck dinner will be on Saturday in one of the campsites of the Two Jack Main Campground. Look for the Dive Flag.
