I've gotten to know a lot of the DM's that were involved in this test, so it was even more fun to watch. First the recent grads of the dive master program get together and choose a theme; this group obviously chose to be smurfs (brilliant idea if you ask me!). In the evening everyone gathers on the beach, there is an MC hosting the event, and the games ensue.
The evening started with a vow to always uphold the PADI guidelines (after this evenings festivities of course), and to drink whatever was put in front of them. Easy enough. Next were relay races including beer and shots of course. One included drinking a shot, spinning around with your forehead on a broom and then taking another shot. Another relay included sticking your face in chili infused water to retrieve and egg, which more times than not broke in their mouths, followed by a no hands shot. Next was a friendly game of "Never have I ever". Unfortunately its a small island and every knows everyones business, so some of our DM's suffered through some embarrassing and fun questions. The night ended with the snorkel test, where each DM was fed a disgusting cocktail of god knows what through a snorkel. Just about everyone vomited at the end, and one DM ran naked into the sea. All in all, a successful snorkel test from what I can gather.
To end this post I will leave you with this thought....these are my predecessors....I will eventually have to follow in their footsteps.
....god help me!
