The Inaugural event at Ginnie Springs was a big success with over 100 attendees. There were divers and industry insiders there sharing information and talking about the sport we love. Divers stayed busy all day demoing gear and only took breaks for the Neutral Buoyancy Clinic with “The Chairman,” Pete Murray of ScubaBoard and to enjoy the delicious lunch, complete with homemade chili, served by Chris Richardson of Deep 6 Expedition Dive Gear. Those who pre-registered by clicking the RSVP link on the event page at www.trytechgear.com were given tickets for a drawing at the event. Lucky divers won a set of Dive Rite fins, a Dive Rite Reel, and a set of Deep 6 fins. On April 7th we move on to Blue Water Park in Pelham, Alabama for the second event and it promises to be even bigger and better.
