Don't forget!

Loch Low-Minn's 5th annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest is this Sunday, October 28th!

Contestants should be ready to submerge by 1pm. They'll have a maximum of 40min to carve their masterpieces. Voting begins at 2pm, and everyone who didn't participate in the carving can cast their vote. Free snacks and drinks will be available. As always, we offer great prizes for first, second, and third place - and merely participating gets you $5 off your day's diving. You must bring your own pumpkin (uncarved and unmarked) to participate. Stencils are not allowed - you must show your own creativity.

Sunday promises to be sunny and warm, and this may be the last weekend of open diving this year, depending on the weather of the following weekend, so we recommend you make the most of it. Come down and enjoy some good, spooky fun and the best diving for miles around. We look forward to seeing you!

We need some specific items

We asked for items to decorate the bottom of the loch with, and you have stunned us with your generosity. We extend a sincere thank you to everyone that contributed! Because of your kind donations, we can now limit the search to only a few specific items: a motorcycle, a helicopter, or a small plane fuselage. These vehicles can be stripped and sunk in the loch to allow underwater recovery and rescue training. All donations will be sincerely appreciated.
