We have squeaked past $25,000!!!

The charge was led by longtime support (notice how often we use that term??) Robert Wagner (the diver, not the actor). Robert doesn't do much CA diving anymore but recognizes that protocols developed here are applicable worldwide and supporters our Catalina Chamber because it helps spread the knowledge around.

Also pitching in this week is NAUI. Yes, the National Association of Underwater Instructors. They realize that no matter how good the training you get is, mistakes happen and the need for a chamber can never be minimized.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree that support of your local Chamber, even though you might never directly need it, is something worthwhile and beneficial? If you do, how about a nice Challenge donation of whatever amount is right for you? Here's the direct link:

Our next benchmark is $30,000. Who's going to push us in that direction????????
