As to other aspects of the party, I am working on a drink and food specials and we are going to be selling the 2017 OWU T-Shirts at the party for $15.00 with $5.00 going back to SUDS.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite or at front counter during Friday Night's show. As to the Show itself, we have some great speakers and a super Saturday Evening Film Festival lined up. There are multiple trips being given away each and day.

We are offering a couple great 2-fer incentives for coming to the show. Scuba Emporium and Chicagoland Scuba Center have generously offered two free airfills for any one showing up with a wristband from the show. Windy City Diving is offering a 2 for 1 Wednesday Night Single Tank Dive Charter to anyone buying an All-Inclusive Weekend Ticket.

That's right the All-Inclusive Weekend Ticket is back. After receiving a lot of flak for dropping the multi-day ticket when I switched to Eventbrite, I have given up fighting. The deal is you will get a wristband that you will have to wear all weekend just as if you at Lollapalooza. The All-Inclusive Ticket costs $100 and includes $135 worth of stuff, including:

* Friday Night Floor
* Party with a Purpose
* Saturday and Sunday Floor & Seminars
* Saturday Evening Film Festival
* T-Shirt
If you have any questions regarding the show just pickup the phone or shoot me an email.
