    Default Weather Looks Good - Who's Shooting?

    The weather for this weekend looks good for the 46th Southern Open. Who's got the guts and fortitude to go spearing in 5 knot winds (and that's the forecast as it now stands for out to 60nm)?

    Myself, Iggy, El Gavilan., and Chris are going to give the Hatteras a go and "due West we are a rowing." We have room from Emo Spearo. Is he already booked on a boat?

    Synopsis...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE ACROSS SOUTH OR SOUTH-CENTRAL FLORIDA TO THE GULF THROUGH SATURDAY.

    Saturday...West winds around 5 knots. Seas 2 feet. Bay and inland waters smooth.

    I'm buying the train ticket today! I hope I don't get DQ'd for being out of state shooting the state championship

    Come on down and show us Florida divers that you can be the new State Champion. We love the competition.

    We already have divers from Indianapolis, Atlanta and Virginia coming to shoot. Good luck to all of you and thanks for stepping up to join a tournament where we will apply ALL the proceeds back to divers rights and community charities.

    Who else is shooting?

    I hope the weather is really nice. I'm bringing a ringer in from the East Coast and going deeper than I probably should in my little 23.

    See you all out there or at the weigh in on Sunday.

    After getting the mail from Wednesday and putting the info into the computer we have a pre-registration of 101 divers. The weather has picked up to 10kts out 60 nm - so those of you riding in a 15' Jon boat might want to re-think that trip to the Elbow!
