Invitation – RESCUE THE REEF 2011

Invitation to Rescue the Reef 2011

A Force-E fundraiser for the benefit of Palm Beach County Reef Rescue

Sunday, May 15th

Join Reef Rescue  for a two-tank afternoon dive and BBQ to celebrate Florida’s reefs.

Diver check in 12:30pm, Boat leaves 1 pm

After the dives there will be a BBQ and Live Music starting at 6 pm.

You will have an opportunity to learn what recreational divers can do to help protect our coral reefs.  Reef Rescue divers will demonstrate techniques for properly documenting your dive observations, video and photos so it can be used to help protect our valuable reef resources. No scientific training or background is necessary.

You will learn how to use GPS to track and plot your dives, collect baseline data and document reef damage from algal blooms, anchoring, coral diseases, lionfish and construction impacts.

Force-E will provide the band and the BBQ chicken…bring your favorite side-dish and drinks! There will be a raffle to raise money for Reef Rescue coral reef conservation projects and proceeds from the dives & BBQ will be donated as well.

Price $70 for divers, $20 for non-divers joining us after the dives.

Call Force-E Boca Raton Dive Center 1-866-307-3483 to sign-up for the dives. Space is limited, the store will give you directions to the boat.

Event will be at Fish City Marina, 2621 North Riverside Drive, Pompano Beach , FL 33062

IMPORTANT: If the dive is canceled because of sea conditions, The Party and BBQ will go on.

If the BBQ and dive are canceled due to weather, the rain date is Sunday, May 22. The call will be made by noon for the dive and 5PM for the party. The Force-E Divers Facebook page will provide updates.

 People not diving but attending the BBQ need to call the Force-E Boca Raton Store to RSVP  866-307-3483  (We need to plan for the chicken).
