The 2016 Dive Gathering will take place at a new location!

Phillips Quarry in Muncie, Indiana will be the exciting new venue for Dive Gathering activities.  Directions to the main dive shop and Phillips Quarry nearby :

Phillips quarry is a private quarry. The locked and gated entry is only for those groups who have made entry arrangements with Leaird's dive shop. The Dive Gathering group will have a key for the gated entrance. All Dive Gathering participants must register at Leaird's Dive Shop and sign the diving waiver forms before being allowed to dive at Phillips Quarry.

Entry fees: $15 per diving day.  Parking is free inside the quarry gates.

Air fills:  Though the dive shop normally closes at 1pm on Saturdays and closed on Sundays, we have made arrangements for air fills on both days during specific times (to be determined).
