Rebel’s/ Dillo’s Wine and Cheese Party and Arctic Dive

The Scubadillos will join with the Diving Rebels and any other interested divers and non-divers for the annual Arctic Dive/Wine and Cheese Contest on February 27, 2021.

This event will take place at the Inland Divers at Possum Kingdom Lake about 2 hours West of Dallas. There is a $10pp entrance fee. This is a new location from previous years.

There will be a number of activities associated with the outing. For those hardy souls with thick wet suits and with dry suits, the pool (lake) will be open for diving. We’ll dive on an as come basis, with no certain times scheduled for diving. Talk to other Diving Rebels or Scubadillos who will be diving, and coordinate your dive schedule with them.

Sorry, this year there will not be a silent auction.

Rebel’s plan to serve a meal at about 5:00 pm, consisting of hotdogs/burgers/potato salad/beans. To assist in meal planning and preparation, we’re asking attendees bring either appetizer, side dish, dessert. To help offset the expense, we are also asking $5 pp.

After dinner, we’ll start our wine and cheese contest. So scour your wine cellar or favorite liquor store to bring your best/worst red and white wines that will be judged by an erudite panel of vintner wannabes who will closely taste and scrutinize the entries for bouquet, flavor, clarity, and all such hoity-toity wine things. We’ll award winner gift certificates for first prize for the best red and white wines. We’ll also award a loser gift certificate for the worst wine. After the wine contest, we’ll choose the best cheese, and the winner will also win a gift certificate (no entries for worst cheese, please!!). We need judges for both contests, so if you are not a contest participant or related to a contest participant and would like to judge, please let me know. We will plan to have a small fire going most of the day and well into the night.

Camping will be available. Contact Phil at
