Our annual Turquoise Lake Camp Out, treasure hunt and lake clean up was a great success. 47 people participated and it was a day of high excitement. While diving for the treasure hunt golf balls we collected a whopping 12 pounds of trash! Mostly, beer and pop cans the fishermen threw overboard.

We had a BBQ that evening and then prizes were awarded for the treasure hunt. Everyone went home with a prize! It was a great weekend and if you missed it, put the first weekend in August in your calendar for next year. After all, how many times do you get the chance to dive at an elevation of 9,500 feet!
