Our annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt in Monterey will be on Saturday, March 24th. As always we’ll have lots of GREAT prizes, one for every egg and some for our raffle too! The hunt area will be at the west end of San Carlos Beach, opposite the breakwater and down the stairs from the restrooms. Everyone will need to be on the beach between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. to sign in and receive a dive orientaton. The area of the hunt will be cordoned off underwater with yellow rope and there will be floats on the surface marking the area from above. Boats may be moored outside of the hunt area BUT all contestants must remain ON THE SURFACE until the whistle is blown.
At 10:00 sharp I’ll blow a whistle to signal the start of the event, at which time you should descend. In order to give everyone a fair chance to find an egg, only 2 (TWO) eggs may be found during the first 5 minutes aMer which the whistle will be blown again and you may collect as many as you can find. There will be extra weights and a safety diver in my boat, anchored in the center of the area.
We will have children’s activities organized on the beach while parents are searching for their eggs underwater. If you, or someone that you know, would be willing to help with the children’s activities please let me know.
Prizes for the adults and children will be awarded at the evening buffet and awards ceremony at Crazy Horse Restaurant, located above the Bay Park Hotel, near Hwy 101 & Munras Avenue. The menu selections will be the same as last year with tri-tip, halibut, hot vegetables, soM drinks, the Crazy Horse signature salad bar, and even Chocolate mousse for desert. Please see the flier, posted on the web site and available at meetings, for more information and to sign up. I will post a map with directions on our web site and e-mail them to everyone who has signed up for this event. Social hour will start at 5:00 followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m. and the prize presentations immediately after dinner. Be sure to bring money for some GREAT raffle prizes!
