I would love to have some fun but the Compliancy Dept. of the HM Inland Revenue & Customs (UK) has informed me that if any of my trips abroad have ANY element of leisure, none of the expenses can be set against my profit for the year. So I will be there but I will be miserable and shall certainly be at work 100 percent of the time.

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

Hi Fred,

I'd love to be there but had to go to Korea on short notice for work. Dangit! I really wanted to see some MkIII housings too.

Have a drink for me guys and gals.

Cheers

Eric & all,
thanks for your DEMA coverage so far.
You don't look like shit (yet) but let's say Orange isn't your best color.
Hope to be able to accept some of sponsors' kind hospitality and join you Friday.

NOTE about the 8pm happy hour on Friday. It isn't exactly at the lobby bar of the Rosen Center. Walk to the bar and turn left. Go down the lobby/walkway about 50 ft and look for the private nook on the right. We'll be there!

Hmmm I wonder if I could catch a flight and drink enough to make the flight cost worthwhile...LOL

Alex, Have a second drink on me!! I expect you to wake up in a strange place and not know how you got there by morning.

Good work ERIC looked great. :) :D :P

Me and Kelly will try to get there next year now that we only have to drive 20 km and go through 1 stop light to get to the airport instead of flying/driving 1200km ;)
