    Exclamation Scuba World Spearfishing Records Association

    All Scuba divers/Spearfishers,

    A new non-profit organization is in the works for a Scuba World Spearfishing Record Association. This will give current and future generations to come access to current world records held by others in the scuba spearfishing community worldwide. Such an official organization does not exist. Your support and membership are the only ways this will succeed. A board of directors is being developed to create and manage the details of this organization. Please take the time to read the following attachment to educate yourself of what this organization is about. If you are interested in being a member of the Board of Directors, complete application or you can nominate someone, whom i will contact myself. This will be emailed to dive clubs all over the world. The broader, stronger, more diverse representation on the Board, the better for the organization. I will do my best to keep everyone informed. If one member from each dive club will volunteer as a main contact and disperse updates to their club, it would be greatly appreciated. Please include; club name, contact name and info, and location. Thank you for your support.

    Sounds great, the Hell Diver's have been keeping their Top 10's for the last 5 years. And we know the La. Council has great records.

    What are the harvest rules???

    If you or anyone you know may be interested in being a board member, please apply. This is going to be really really hard with zero help! Thanks!

    I take it you have read this thread?
    http://www.spearfishingplanet.com/f4...ld-records-10/
    Just curious if you have contacted the Underwater Society of America and/or the International Underwater Spearfishing Association yet to get their input?
    Will there be some sort of governing body to legitimize the records like the Louisianna Council of Underwater Dive Clubs(LCUDC) or perhaps the Florida Skin Divers Association (FSDA)?

    As explained in the other thread, a couple of us in the Florida Skin Diver Association (FSDA) talked about being the governing body for a scuba world records association but the birth of my son made me cut short my involvement and I dont believe any further work has been done since.
    You may wish to contact Bill Hardman (capt.Bill on this board) to seek his input on this as well as he is the current FSDA president and may potentially be a good candidate for board. He can certainly recommend some key people in the industry.
    The FSDA may still be interested in being the governing body if you are looking for such a thing???

    Anyway, I would love to hear more about this and wish you luck!

    I have to commend Abbey for taking up the challenge and getting ready to sacrifice her time.

    Yeah, this was all supposed to get organized back in 07' and it didn't. Me and Ritchie talked about it back then and I was busy in the woods and he was busy doing whatever he does in the winter. So we never did shit. Let's not kill the Buzz!!!

    Abbey, you will be making a major contribution to the spearfishing community. Call me later, I have a few good ideas to make things run smoothly.

    I have talked with Larry, President of IUSA. And he said he is willing to give me any advice needed. We have their support. Step one is we need board members. I need a board of people to help me govern and make decisions. people who's ultimate goal is to make this organization work and last, more importantly. I know many people have attempted to develop such a thing before but nothing has come of it. Any information from previous attempts is appreciated. No one has done it so now i am, whether you know me or not, i would appreciate your support. THANKS
