Deerfield Beach Pier CleanUp and Guinness World Record 2018
DEERFIELD PIER CLEANUP 2018
Join us Saturday morning for the big event - our annual Pier Cleanup! Dixie Divers with help of City of Deerfield Beach has arranged to have Deerfield Beach Pier closed on June 16th 2017 from 9:00am until 11:00pm so that divers can maneuver among the pilings with safety. Volunteers are needed to dive the pier and for the land duties such as pulling up the buckets the divers will fill with mono-filament line and lead sinkers and to co-ordinate the surface onlookers. Sign up right now: www.racersignup.com/world-record-attempt-longest-human-chain-underwater/volunteer This is the 13th annual Reef CleanUp presented by Dixie Divers. City of Deerfield Beach will keep records of the trash weights and different composition. Dixie Divers will be video taping the divers and volunteers who participate for a DVD that will be given to City of Deerfield Beach and Broward County for their environmental education programs. The Pier dive is one of the most fun for local divers because of the variety of creatures and the abundance of life there. Normally closed to divers because of fishing this once a year treat lets us help the environment and dive a forbidden spot all at the same time.
