Chamber Day 2015 is very pleased to tell you that the Truth will be joining us this year on May 6. As many of you know, the boat is normally based out of Santa Barbara but has recently started spending the winters berthed at Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach and this year, they'll be available to help us raise much-needed funds for our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber.

We've got the Truth designated as an "open" boat which means that no store or club has pre-reserved spots and all the available spaces (35 divers total) will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis. You can sign up for this boat either though our website and secure server at www.chamberday.org or by calling our main number at 310/652-4990.

As with all the other fine boats in our fleet, a Chamber Day ticket on the Truth is $110 plus an additional $30 for food-and-air (which the event pays to the boat).

The Truth will leave from Rainbow Harbor at 7AM and head for Catalina. (You'll likely be able to board the night before and sleep on board but we haven't confirmed that yet.) You’ll make two dives at Catalina, get a commemorative Chamber Day 2015 T-shirt, and receive 5 daytime raffle tickets. To increase your chance of winning raffle prizes, you can purchase extra raffle tickets when you make your reservation, on the boat, or at the Chamber.

Before your dives, the Truth will dock in Big Fisherman’s Cove a little after 9AM and everyone will disembark for a 75-minute tour of our Chamber facilities, including a chance for you to hear from first responders from L.A. County Lifeguards, rescue helicopter crews from the Coast Guard and/or Sheriff’s Department, and the Chamber crew will walk you around the Chamber itself. You’ll even go inside and be pressurized to a depth of 1 foot. (Hard to believe, but you’ll have to clear your ears.)

The Truth should be back in Rainbow Harbor between 5 and 5:30PM. This makes it the perfect choice for those of you who will also be attending Chamber Evening at the Aquarium of the Pacific as the Aquarium is literally steps away from Rainbow Harbor.

Please also remember that Chamber Day is a fund-raising event and not a normal dive day. Due to the logistical issues involved, if weather conditions preclude the dive boats from safely going out on Chamber Day there will not be a make-up day. If weather forces us to cancel you will receive your Chamber Day shirt, be transferred to the Flying Dutchman, and will be given an additional 10 daytime raffle tickets.

The bottom line in all of this is that your continued support of our Chamber, in whatever form that takes, on the Truth or another boat, is essential for our Chamber to remain available and on-watch 24/7/365. And that means we need you to sign up for Chamber Day 2015. Come alone or bring a buddy, but join the Truth and the rest of the SoCal diving community for this special event!
