Scuba for Charity
UW Treasure Hunt
It is with sadness that we announce our decision to cancel the 2020 charity event held at Mermet Springs. After consulting with the staff and reviewing all our options we feel it is best to not have the event at this time. There are so many unknowns and our Governor here in Kentucky is moving the goal post back with closures and reduced capacity, etc, etc, etc. Other states will likely follow suit and we feel that there are just to many unknowns out there right now.
In every aspect of what we do from teaching to diving for fun, the safety and well-being of those with and around us has always been and will continue to be our primary concern. It may be that everything would go off without a hitch, but there also a chance that a gathering of that many people could result in someone getting ill, maybe not. I’m not willing to take that chance with myself, my staff, the staff at Mermet or any of the hundreds of people who participate and gather for the event.
We will hope and pray that the event can return in full swing in 2021. Please save the date on your 2021 calendar— September 11, 2021.
In an effort to raise a little money for the Charity and having already purchased an 80cuft tank to raffle at the charity event, we will be selling raffle tickets in the Mermet Springs office from Sunday Aug 2 until closing on Saturday September 12. First thing Sunday morning, Sept. 13, a winner will be drawn. We will be doing the same raffle in our store in Owensboro with a second tank. So there are two tanks up for grabs! You will be required to turn in your half of the winning ticket to accept your prize. Ticket cost will be $5 each.
We appreciate all the support for our event in the past and we hope you will join us again in 2021 when, for all our sakes, life is better! Stay safe, stay well and stay in the water!!
PCB Trip Cancelled
Ok, this is officially the craziest dive season for travel we have ever experienced. We have come to the sad, but necessary decision with participant safety in mind that we will not be able to do the Panama Trip in August.
The Covid-19 cases in the Bay County area have been rising consistently over last several days with 200-300 new cases each day. This could all be because of increased testing or it could be something else. We are not willing to bet anyone’s health on why the numbers are up. So we apologize to those of you who were planning on going in August, we have been cautiously optimistic about going and now things have changed. In addition to the numbers rising in Bay county, Kentucky’s Governor has just reduced gatherings back to 10 or less and he is requiring a 14 day quarantine on anyone returning to Kentucky after traveling to several states of which Florida is one.
We have always said the health and safety of our staff and our customers is our top priority. We feel this is the best decision at this time to keep both of those in check.
We will reschedule the Panama City Beach Trip for August 19-21, 2021. Stay Safe and hopefully next travel season will be better!
