I'm a relatively new diver from the Chicago area and keen to get back under water.  I'll treat any buddy to lunch!  Just ping me an email and let me know if you can join me  (my wife won't let me dive alone and she can't make it).  Thanks!  Andrew Y.

Thanks for the post/reply Greg.  Do you want to plan on touching base that Friday or Thursday before (Jun 24-25)?  What is your direct email and mobile #?  You may reach me at andrew_yeager@yahoo.com.  Would appreciate the company so I may dive the Quarry!

Evening gentlemen,

I will be at Haigh on the 26th. I have my open and advanced with a few specialties. I just completed a dive at France Park in Indiana. Looking to try my new camera and housing... Any takers?

Just let me know.

Jeff

Greg and Jeff:

Sounds like a plan.  Let's connect the week of 6/21 and arrange a general meeting time, etc.  As my plan stands now, I'd like to get to be in the water at the quarry before 10 am on Saturday, 6/26.  Talk soon.  Andrew Yeager

Morning Guys,

I can be there before 10am.. It is about a 2hr drive for me.. No sweat! I am hoping to use a new underwater housing that I recieved for Fathers Day. If it cmes in on time... Let me know if we are still on.. I'll check the board daily to make sure..

Jeff and Greg:


I'm still planning on driving down this Sat. morning, 6/26.  I will be there before 10 am.  Look for a silver Volvo wagon w/ IL plates.  Per Greg, let's check in w/ each other Thursday night with a weather report.  Cheers,  Andrew

Ok, Thursday evening it is.. I will be driving a white Dodge Grand Caravan W/IL plates. Might be a good idea to meet at the pro shop.. I am supposed to have my Camera housing and light by then.. Could be some pretty cool video opportunity.. Chat again, Thursday..

Jeff,I don't want to burst your bubble of excitment.If you have done diving at Haigh before,I don't have to tell you that the vis is not the greatest.Depending on how many classes are going on...After being at Pearl on Sat.I'm hoping I can see more than 10 to 15'.No joke....Anyway,I have a Red Chevy P/U.Dan Tag on the back...Crossing my fingers on the weather...Talk soon Guy's..

Hey Greg, Yeah.. I know what you mean. I have been to Haigh before.. I love it, it is clean and well run. That being said, NOTHING in the Midwest compares to the Caribbean. Been there done that (and loved it).. My goal is more to test out the camera, maybe get video of some wildlife etc..  and have a great time. So far according to Weather Underground, we may be ok.

Hi Greg:

Yes, Jeff and I met up and had a good day at the Quarry.  We both learned at 50 feet, it is darn cold!  Hard to dress for that cold when it's 90 degrees top side.  Only my 7th and 8th dives, so it was great having an experienced diver like Jeff to coach me along.  We're going to try to meet up at the Quarry again on a Saturday in August.  Sorry we missed you, let's all keep in touch.
