Underwater Pumpkin Carving Brings a Halloween Twist to Diving


New M Essentials™ Halloween blog post highlights underwater pumpkin carving events, tips and tricks.

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

M Essentials™, the watersports repair and maintenance brand by McNett®, announces a new underwater pumpkin carving blog post, just in time for Halloween. Featuring tips, tricks and local events, M Essentials equips scuba divers with all of the gear and information they need to complete a successful underwater pumpkin carving dive.

“Underwater pumpkin carving is a fun event for divers and non-divers of all ages,” said Charlynn Andrews, owner of Gone Diving in Bellingham. “We have a potluck and all non-divers get to vote on the pumpkins. We award prizes for categories like lamest, most creative and most aquatic pumpkin. Everyone looks forward to this event!” Gone Diving will host the shop's seventh annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest on Saturday, October 27.

Underwater pumpkin carving combines the fun of diving with the challenge of keeping a buoyant object underwater (while using sharp implements). It also provides an opportunity for diving buddies and shore support to get to know one another. It's a great way to celebrate Halloween, meet new divers and learn more about the local dive community.

“Don't be frightened if you see creatures dressed in black, emerging from the murky depths, wearing masks and brandishing knives,” said Gerald Craft, consumer relations specialist at M Essentials. “It's just your local dive shop's annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest.”
