DEMA: It’s Ho Lee Smokes time again. I’ve been to some exhibitions in my time but, if you are in to scuba diving, DEMA is amazing. I felt like a kid in a candy store, a dog with two tails, a cat with cream and a fresh mouse…… WOW. And it’s SO big. When time allowed I wandered happily through the aisles oohing and ahhing adding up just how much I could dent my credit card. Mercy. “Happily” I settled on a new BC (thank you Zeagle for a stunningly good deal); and a Heinrichs Weikamp TTL convertor which has been repackaged by a German company into a seriously neat project. (if you want to know more, email me)
I was hoping to do a Live From DEMA blog but with the Convention Centre (center?) wanting a cool $99.95 a day for Internet access, I thought maybe not. How can they possibly charge a $100 a day for Internet! Clearly the days of highway robbery are not over.
The KBR stand looked terrific and hats off to KBR owner, Mark, for the design. Although the show was, I’m told (this was my first DEMA) quiet, the KBR stand had a steady flow of visitors. And, similar to the NEC show in the UK, there was lots of really nice things said about the resort, the staff, the food and the diving. Cool.
So now there are LOADS more people in the US know about KBR and what we have to offer. So come on, don’t be left behind. Brilliant diving, fabulous resort, great fun, seriously relaxing, a Knock-Out DEMA special for the next few days… and I can show off my new BC and, errr, Heinrichs Weikamp convertor. Nerd anyone?
