The last time we did anything like this was in 2010.  It was very popular and I think many forum members enjoyed themselves.

But a non commercial forum organising dive trip is more complicated than what most think.  There are so many considerations, especially for safety.  So yes, its really exciting that DIN is putting together another trip.. but I wonder who will be doing the shitty background work!  :P :P :P
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...
