Dixie Divers will be videotaping and creating a DVD for the city and county of those who participate. Registration begins from 7:30 a.m. There are only 90 free spots available in the Main Beach Parking Lot by the fire station (first come, first served).

Bring cutting tools (for mono-filament), snips, scissors and a small rake. The dive will be 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is a free event T-shirt and goody bag for all volunteers (only if you pre-register online). Bring family members to help clean-up the beach and pier area too. Please contact Dixie Divers at 954-420-0009 for more information.

Stay around because from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., divers will attempt to get a world record for Guinness Book of World Records for the longest underwater human chain.
