2016 Annual
Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest

The third annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest at Loch Low-Minn saw lots of new participants! Fifteen artists descended into the spooky waters and carved for glory and prizes.

We want to thank the participants for their fantastic work and all the Loch Low-Minn guests for coming out to enjoy this great last weekend of open water diving. Your continued support is invaluable, and your enjoyment makes it all worth while!
Special thanks goes out to Rhea's Diving for helping make this year's contest more competitive and to Kelly Lynn Baker for her help with setting up all of the spooky underwater decorations.

2016-10-20 The leaves are lovely and the air is getting chilly, but the water is still warm (77°F above the first thermocline)! Be sure to catch the last few weekends of open water scuba diving this year by visiting Loch Low-Minn. Portable grills are welcome by request with adequate precautions, so come make a day of it! We hope to see you before the end of the season!

Lost Wetsuit

Friends of Loch Low-Minn, we need your help! One of our new rental suits - a Seac WarmFlex 7mm wetsuit (LP size) - seems to have been misplaced sometime in the last three weeks. If any of you happen to have noticed it lying around the resort where it shouldn't have been or might have found one has mysteriously appeared amongst your own scuba gear, please let us know! We're sure it is scared and homesick, and we would like to see it safely back on the Loch Low-Minn storage hangers for future divers to enjoy. Thanks for all your help!

Hornet Nest Removal

Loch Low-Minn cares deeply about the safety of our customers, so when we were informed of a giant black hornet nest between tables 9 and 10 last weekend, we sprang into action!

We grabbed our trusty wasp spray and ran straight toward... our fellow diver Darrell Haynes, who bravely and professionally took care of the terrifying pain piñata for us.

We considered leaving the empty nest up as decoration until the end of the season, but frankly, we were kind of scared that the hornets might come back. Now, the seating area is safe once again, so be sure to thank Darrell when you stop by the loch this weekend. The weather should be fantastic, and the hornets are no more! We hope to see you there!

Farewell, Jim Cruse!

This year, Loch Low-Minn must wish a fond farewell to our own Jim Cruse, who is moving out of state before we open for the 2016 diving season.
Ever since he joined the new Loch Low-Minn only a few short years ago, he has quickly become an invaluable asset and a good friend. His enthusiasm for adventure and attention to safety were an inspiration to us all.
Although he will be sorely missed, we wish him all the best in his new home and hope that he visits us again soon!

Jim Cruse
