Scubadillos ! ! ! It is Travis Time!!! Lake Travis that is. We are going to Lake Travis this summer, July 16th and 17th. Put it on your calendar and join us! Lake Travis is located just to the northwest of Austin. Our plan is to arrive at Windy Point Park on the morning of July 16th. We will be diving at Windy Point throughout the day of Saturday July 16th. Plan on camping Saturday night at the park. Check�em out at http://www.windypointpark.com! HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART ! ! ! For the adventurous folks, we will go diving off the Giant Stride on Sunday morning. What is the Giant Stride, you ask? The Giant Stride is a bona fide dive boat !!! On Lake Travis !!! Yes! So, the Giant Stride is a Coast Guard certified dive boat operating on Lake Travis. The boat operator is Lake Travis Scuba!! Check�em out on the web at http://www.laketravisscuba.com! So, as your outing coordinator for this outing, I, John Richerson, REQUIRE the following commitments from all club members. If you intend to go diving on the Giant Stride, I need to know before June 10, 2016. This advance notice is necessary because a number of logistics have to be handled in advance of our July outing. If you intend to dive with us on the Giant Stride, I need the following artifacts: First Name Last Name Contact Phone number Certifying Agency (for you knuckleheads, I am talking about your Scuba certification) Certification Level Certification Card Number Certification Year When we arrive Sunday morning at the marina, the Giant Stride will be ready to receive us. The Giant Stride will haul us out into the middle of Lake Travis. Depending on the temperament of the boat captain, the Giant Stride will either drop us into the lake in the middle of nowhere; or if we ask politely, Robert, the boat captain, has his favorite dive sites. Dive sites such as: Starnes Island Fiesta Haus Wall Oasis Wall The Shaker Plant West Point Cypress Creek Wall Wreck Alley What is that? You say you have never heard of any of these �dive sites�? Well, you have never been aboard the Giant Stride. Please come join us! It will be a blast! I promise. The diving fee to board the Giant Stride is $45. For $45, we all get to take a 4 hour, 2 tank, dive excursion to wondrous dive sites across Lake Travis!! These dive sites are only accessible by boat so the dive fee is well worth it!!! Please come join us!
After the conclusion of our Giant Stride outing, it should be approximately 1230pm on Sunday. We can all go eat dinner. I have heard the Austin area has some mediocre restaurants. But no worries! We will find some place to chow! After eating lunch, I plan on driving northbound on I-35.

I ABSOLUTELY DEMAND the following. If you intend to dive on the Giant Stride, please notify me before June 10th. I have to make reservations well in advance of our outing to ensure that we all have seats on the boat. As part of the reservation process, Lake Travis Scuba requires that full freight prices be paid in advance�. That means I need $45 from everyone. I will accept personal checks, or cash. If you prefer, you may write a check to the club and make notice to the treasurer and me regarding payment for the outing.��
