Hi all,

Our group has a trip scheduled to Wakatobi in late September 2008. It is for a 10 day stay at the resort. Everyone is sharing equally in any discounts offered, in other words it's not a commercial trip. Unfortunately, two of the group have had to cancel. We have filled one of the two openings. We are now looking a female diver to join the group.

We are a fun group of underwater photographers. Before the trip, several of us will be diving in Bali and, after the trip to Wakatobi, several of us are going to experience the diving in Lembeh. However, the diving at these other destinations is optional.

Since the trip was arranged in 2007. the trip is available at 2007 prices.

If you are interested in joining us and would like more information, please feel free to contact me by PM.

All the best,

Ellen

This is going to be one super trip. Some members of the Wakatobi Wackos were in Curacao last month and can I say I never dived with a more funner group of people. SI's were a blast and all were courteous photogs and safety conscious divers.

Female?!?!

That is so sexist! From now on i'm not offering my seat on the bus to any damsels in distress! hehe :)

You should offer it to a guy and charge them extra for the privilege of sharing a cabin with a female! Charge them extra and send the money to a charity!

OK, Simon, out of the goodness of my heart, I've decided to let you take the female spot since you've been seen and photographed in a dress :lol:

Now, for the $$$ aspect (or pounds in your case, sorry, don't have a symbol for that on my keyboard), you've got to pony up the funds NOW.... I'll be nice, though, I won't ask you to send a Western Union Moneygram to my Nigerian bank account :)

It is funny you mention that, last month I made alot of money wiring someone in Nigeria, $15 mil. Still waiting on the check, they said they sent it, but I guess mail is slow sometimes :)

Never fear, Drew. I've heard that good things come to all who are patient....

Isn't that about the same as waiting for an important piece of uw photog equipment to be returned from the shop just before an important trip? :)
