Wave Line

Welcome to the 2017 Polar Bear Club!

We had a great turn out and put 28 divers in the water. The air temp was in the 60s and surface temp was mid 50s.

Special thanks to Grapevine Scuba for the fresh cooked breakfast, it was great! We would also like to thank each and every person that attended the event as you are the reason we do it! Special thanks to CB, Robert, Allen and Karen Johnson for all you do!

If you have comments, suggestions or any ideas that would make this event better, please drop me an E Mail.
