What a wild ride . . .

We have now (as of 6PM 5/10/19) closed down the donation page on the website for any late stragglers for both the Dutchman and the Challenge. So here’s are the final full list of Challenge donors.

And we must acknowledge a wonderful $1,000 Gold donation from Melinda Herndon (of Scuba.com) which we came in after we did our day-of calculations. It is appreciated nonetheless. (As are a myriad of Bronze $100 donations that you’ll see as well.)

Many thanks to all who participate and donate each year through the Chamber Challenge. It’s really an integral part of the overall success of this event and a huge reason as to why we, as a diving community, can get our Chamber on solid financial ground for another year. As we’ve said before, it’s like insurance: You hope you’ll never need it, but you’ll be thankful it’s there if/when you do.

Be sure to mark your calendars for Chamber Day 2020 on May 6. We’ll start collecting Challenge donations March 1 and we’ll hope to have you all with us again.
