We're at it again! Wetpixel and DivePhotoGuide will be hosting our DEMA 2009 Cocktail Party on Friday, November 6, 2009.

Date and Time: 8:00pm Friday, November 6, 2009
Location: Rosen Centre Terrace, 2nd floor (take the elevators to 2nd floor and follow signs to TERRACE)

Check the front page of Wetpixel at the end of the Thursday the 5th for location change details, or drop by the Wetpixel /DivePhotoGuide booth #1068 for an invite card.

Last year's party in Las Vegas was packed full of photography and dive industry folks. This year, the gathering will probably be much more casual; we promise to make up for it in Vegas 2010. :)

(Guy behind the bar) "Yo buddy, you got your beer."

(Guy in striped shirt) "Yep, definitely in your hand."

(Guy with beer) "I can't hear either of you." :)

Mike,
Jim Yanny is on his way with a four thousand dollar present for you. (Well, that's what it cost me when I bought it!) So be nice.

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?

What a nice guy Eric is - and he didn't rise to my baiting in the cafeteria after either!
