Event:  Enjoy a fun weekend camping out and diving at the famous - Twin Lakes Dive Facility.  

 

Camping at Lions Pioneer Park Campground in the Community of Winfield. We are in the unreserved group area. Look for the dive flag. The group site does not have power water or sewer.  But if needed, some hook-ups might be available.

 

Friday: Most campers arrive after 5:00 pm on Friday.

 

Saturday: Buddy Teams arrange for dives at Twin Lakes on Saturday.  Hopefully, Wing Divers can guide those new to the site.

 

Saturday 7 PM: Pot-luck Supper:  Our potluck dinner is a wonderful gathering of hungry divers and guests, with tons of amazing food. This is the part of the weekend where the group really comes together to laugh, relax, tease, re-hash the day, plan more diving, swap tall tales, meet new dive buddies and build great friendships. Bring your favorite campfire food and stories to share. Some folks bring deserts, some bring a meat dish, some bring salads, and some bring veggies or carbs. We never know what’s for supper, but it’s always good, and there’s always lots to eat.

 

Sunday: Pancake Breakfast on Sunday 8 am - provided by Wing Divers Club, with a few planned dives possible on Sunday am, then pack up & travel home.

Don't forget to RSVP (see email above) or via AUC Group Facebook Event Pg
