  On May 30, 2009 B.A.D. will be making its mark at

Windy Point Park on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas. 

This venue is great for camping, feeding the "perchana" and seeing some BIG catfish and bass.  We will be meeting at the lake at noon on that Saturday.  If you plan to camp, bring your tents and equipment; sites are available. If you plan to attend, please contact Christie at crazamora@earthlink.net.  For a map check out our website at www.bayareadivers.org or Windy Point's website: www.windypointpark.com for more details.  Come join us to get wet and have a great time.

 Windy Point Park is one of the top diving "hot spots" in the Central Texas area. It has been recognized by various divers and instructors from all over the state. Locally, several Fire Rescue and Underwater Rescue Operations use Windy Point Park as a training ground to help save lives. Windy Point is located at 6506 Bob Wentz Park Rd, Austin, TX 78732

Windy Point offers a wealth of items to find, explore, and seek out in Lake Travis. Divers will find boat wrecks and unique metal sculptures of a scuba diver, a sea turtle, a shark and a manatee along with other interesting objects. There is a jet ski, some small boats, a larger sailboat, a Pinto, and more! There are six platforms available for instructors to use for training.
