Based on several factors including the expected wind chill factor, the Club will not have a formal presence at the Polar Bear Dive. Sadly, this puts our run on as the Best Represented Club at the end. We will be back! We wish Clear Springs, Grapevine Scuba and all those participating a safe and warm New Year!

While the Club may not have a formal presence this is a CSSP event not a Rebel event. I don't want anyone to be confused and not go thinking that CSSP canceled. If you planned to participate and the conditions are agreeable to you to participate, that is a decision you best make for yourself.
