Scuba Diving Texans Plan “Dive Around Texas” Event
They say that everything is bigger in Texas and scuba retailers and industry stakeholders are out to prove the saying is true – at least when it comes to scuba diving. DiveAroundTexas.com is launching the second annual Dive Around Texas contest to encourage divers to explore some of the best diving Texas has to offer.
In 2009, 45 dive retailers and 55 dive industry stakeholders – including equipment manufacturers, training organizations, apparel manufacturers and dive publications – joined together to promote the vast diving opportunities the Lone Star State offers. Blessed with more than 30 dive sites spanning rivers, quarries, lakes, natural springs and the Gulf of Mexico, Texas offers wreck diving, manatee encounters, underwater “flower gardens,” and much more. The 2009 contest generated more than 4000 Texas-based logged dives and attracted in excess of 140 divers to the final Awards Recognition Day where more than $17,000 US in prizes were awarded. And, just like the state itself, this year’s Dive Around Texas contest promises to be even bigger!
DiveAroundTexas.com challenges Texas-based divers to do what they love best – go diving – and every dive increases a diver’s chance of winning valuable trips and prizes. The more dives made, the better the chances of winning.
Stay tuned for more details and the launch of the 2010 DiveAroundTexas.com contest and get ready to Dive Around Texas!
