Edition 14 June 26, 2003
The 19th of June we had 5 divers participate in our first tailgate dive which took place on Big Cormorant Lake. The evening was pleasant and those diving had a good dive.  Those diving were Pat Johnston, Jim Hammer, Ryan Sandvig, Greg Bach and Seal.  Also attending but not diving  were Lindy, Logan, and Brea Johnston, Tracy, Randi, and Whitney Granger and Kiera White.  Our next tailgate dive is Thursday July 3, 2003. Attached are some photos of the tailgate dive.
The Pelican Lake cleanup went well and there were a lot of nice door prizes and prizes given away for the trash that was found.  Attached are some pictures of the event.  Tri-State Diving would like to thank Crystal Pierz Marine for hosting this event.
Earl Paulson found a medallion while doing his check out dives 1 and 2 on Pickeral Lake and collected on an air fill card.
The big medallion has not been found as of yet.  We have run out of clues so we will host a find the medallion dive on July 12 where we will mark off the general square area within 200 feet diameter of the medallion and allow everyone to look.  If no one finds it we will place the names of all of the divers that register at the dive center that morning and dive that day and have a drawing and the winner will win the dive computer. We ask that you meet at the dive center by 9:30 AM as we will leave for the dive site at about 10:00 AM.
