Tips for the Dino Dive

 Wear your diving clothes under the clothes you wear to the event; then you don’t have to change into it just to change right back out of it!
Choose your “Dive Day” outfit (or post-dive gear) with this is mind: you will be cold and possibly numb, so loose-fitting, easy-on clothes without a lot of snaps, zippers or buttons are best.  When your fingers and toes don’t work so well, it’s not so easy to get some of that stuff back on!
Bring a loose pair of shoes to wear after the dive: something that will slip easily on and doesn’t have tricky laces (think Crocs). 

Costume Contest

Just be creative.  A costume is not required.  Some people like acting a little crazy and that's ok!
