Egg Hunt 2001
April 15, 2001
We had a ball!
Starting at 9:00,
April 15th 2001, everyone decorated as many as 100 hard
boiled eggs! The Underwater Easter Bunny took them out
and hid them in the sea. During this time, the divers got
their dive gear set up and ready for the dive. At 11:00,
groups of six (3 Buddy Teams including DM or Instructor)
entered the water to hunt for the most Easter Eggs. They
went at least 10-30 feet deep between the Shark Cave and
the Archway and found them. All eggs were retrieved and
brought back to the beach. Any trash brought back was
also worth points. We broke everyone into one of two
groups: "Hunters" or "Gatherers".
They had only One Hour to complete the dive and return
their eggs to the Easter Basket. Broken or late eggs didn’t
count. NO WHINING was allowed!
There were 3 Prize Categories: The team members with the
"Golden Egg", "Most Eggs", and "Best
Reef Clean-Up Job" each won cool prizes. After the
dive we hung out, kicked back, ate, partied and some of
us caught the sunset.
Entry fee was only $30 per person ($50 per couple) and
included the dive and Mimosa brunch! (Remember, No
Alcohol should ever be consumed before you dive!) Non-Certified
divers who had dove with Shaka Divers before were allowed
to participate but had to dive with an Instructor.
We had plenty of helpers assist with various parts of
this party. The Positions included: Instructor / Dive
Master, Food Prep and Servers, Underwater Easter Bunnies,
and Egg Boilers/ Decorating Supervisors. Big Mahalos go
out to Renee' Reger, Chad Ehlers, Courtney Foote, Murray
Thorn, Loretta Hamby, Pamela Macedo, Big Mike Lawrence,
Malika Weizbowski, and Glenn and Barbara Armstrong!
The Easter Egg Hunt and Reef Clean-up was even more fun
than last year’s Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest
and we video taped the whole event too. We can't wait to
do it again next year! We hope you can attend!
