The PDE Extravaganza – Everybody Wins!

10/22/2007 11:36:06 AM
It’s not often that a situation comes around where everybody wins, especially when you can win while doing something you plan on doing anyway. But the PDE Extravaganza is just such a thing, and it’s starting soon.

Kicking off on Memorial Day and running through Labor Day (May 28 – Sept. 3, 2007), the PDE Extravaganza invites you to support DAN Research and Project Dive Exploration (PDE) by sharing with DAN the dives you’ll make this summer. It’s easy to participate, and by doing so you’ll qualify to win prizes, including a grand prize of $250* to spend at DAN!

To recognize the first 10 dives you submit (dives must be completed between May 28 and Sept. 3), DAN will send you a special commemorative T-shirt to mark your participation, and we’ll automatically enter you in the drawing for the $250 grand prize. For every additional five dives you submit, we’ll enter you again. The more you dive, the better your chances of winning!

If you’re new to PDE and are using a Level 3 computer, here’s how to participate:

  • You can participate if you use a Cochran, Dive Rite Suunto, or Uwatec downloadable dive computer and already collect your dive profiles electronically using the latest version of the computer manufacturer’s software. Complete the Diver ID Enrollment Form.
  • Go diving!
  • Log your dive profiles electronically, use your DAN diver ID and submit to DAN.

Are you already a regular contributor to PDE? You don’t have to change anything. Just continue diving and submitting your dive profiles as you already do; we’ll simply count your submitted dives during the Extravaganza period and enter you in the raffle for the grand prize.

Are you using a Level 2 computer?
If you're using another computer besides those listed above and are interested in participating in the PDE Extravaganza, contact DAN Research to find out how. Just give us a call at (919) 684-2948 or send us an email at Research@dan.duke.edu. We’ll be happy to get you started.

Divers have until Oct. 1 to submit the dives for the PDE Extravaganza. Only dive profiles collected between May 28 and Sept. 3 will earn you your T-shirt and entries in the drawing. All T-shirts will be awarded after the Extravaganza closes, and we’ll announce the grand prize-winner on Oct. 31.

The PDE Extravaganza is an exciting opportunity for you to win and do something you already love to do. And not only will your win be in the form of prizes, but you’ll know that by sharing your dive experiences, you are supporting DAN Research and helping to increase not only your own dive safety, but the safety of divers everywhere. Everybody wins!
