June 27, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
The partying pineapples are back! They’re having FUN at a Luau ‘ which is exactly what you’ll be doing when you join us June 27 for fun and games, laughter, sunshine, camaraderie, prizes, and FOOD! Diving you ask? Of course you can dive, but it’s not required. This annual funfest ‘ a combo Scubadillo and Diving Rebels event ‘ is a day to get out of the house, enjoy some games in the water and on land, eat, party, and hang with your favorite fun divers. You don’t want to miss it! And this special year, we’ll be encouraging physical distancing and common-sense, safe practices. (If you’re sick, stay home!) See below for all the details and how to get your tickets.
Wheeler Branch Reservoir Park in Glen Rose.

The lake has a dive platform, a sunken bus and helicopter, and lots of fish! Might be chilly; 3-5 mil suit recommended. Be sure to arrive early (approx 11 a.m.) if you intend to dive. Expect low 70s on the surface at this time of year and colder past the various thermoclines as the lake can get past 60 feet for true deep dives. Bring proper hoods, gloves and lights if you go this deep as it is a night dive at this depth ‘ but the water gets clearer! Diving begins in the morning or when you arrive. Raffle
Bring plenty of cash for the raffle to win great prizes. First raffle begins around 2 and the second around 4:30. Let the games begin!
We’ll start the games around 2:30. Horseshoes, batting, water balloon toss and water cup toss, along with water cannons and water bucket competitions are planned. Bring your Frisbees, if you like. This is a family-friendly event. Kids are welcome to participate. Chow down!
The Luau Feast begins at 1 p.m. We’ll have pulled pork sandwiches. Bring a side dish to share, if you wish. Visible alcoholic beverages are not allowed at the park (like most park rules), so remember to bring appropriate beverage containers for your favorite drink. It’s a Luau.
