Boston Sea Rovers 54th Annual International 2008 Dive Clinic

I was a guest speaker this year at the Boston Sea Rovers 2008 Dive Show, March 8 & 9. The Boston Sea Rovers is the oldest, most well respected underwater association in the United States. For more than 50 years, the Rovers have brought together the Who's Who in the underwater community to help educate Scuba divers and the general public about the underwater world. A good time was had by all. Boston is a great city as were the Sea Rovers show organizers and members that we met during our stay. As in previous years, the show was held at the historic Fairmont Copley Hotel. Built in 1912, it is one of the most striking hotels I have ever roomed at.

My presentation entitled "Liquid Rush: Descent into Nakwakto Rapids" was held in the hotel's Oval Room. The audience was told that several famous individuals had performed in that very same room, Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, Vic Damone and even John F. Kennedy once gave a speech there. Very cool!
