Our World Underwater 2007 is February 9-11 in Chicago IL right near O'Hare airport. Ryan Spence...... Yes, our very own Ryan Spence will be speaking and having a Display of his Cousteau equipment. There will be approx. 25,000 diving public walking through over the three days of showing. There are also around 160 booths of retail diving folks to show you their wares. Paul Shutt will be there with Helix for underwater photographer info, Kathy Church who has been underwater filming expert since I think around 1967 will be there doing workshops on cameras and underwater filming. Bob Marx famous treasure hunter will be there telling tales of treasure and artifacts discovered. If interested, go to the website, or contact me. I will be there if you need a coat tail to hang on to. There is also an underwater photography contest dishing out $35,000.00 in prizes. This is the second year for this, so you may have a crack at some cash and prizes here. Come on David Haas...... Enter some of those beautiful photos of yours. Come and have some fun. It's Chicago, and in February you better bring your arctic gear for weather protection. Let's support Ryan!! It'll be fun.

Pearldiver ... thanks for the info ... I might enter it if you don't have to be there to win (I'm in CA). I don't usually enter u/w photo contest cause some of them steal your images (I think there is one in Virginia were they make you give up your copywrite rights; so have to be careful) This one looks ok.
This does seem to be a good one. It is the second year they have had it, and 35k worth of prizes. So, to get in on only the second year may be fruitful. I didn't take a whole lot of photos to enter this year. Take care, hope to see you there. Gayle
