I suspect some divers' phobia about the new year day of Y2K may be leaving several of the Peter Hughes dive charters unbooked for the first week of Y2K. I received the following which I thought some of you might be interested: >Date: 25 Aug 99 14:36:05 -0400 >From: "Peter Hughes Diving"<[log in to unmask]> >Subject: ONCE IN 2000 YEARS! <SNIP to the essentials> >And in the unique spirit of Y2K, Peter Hughes Diving would like to let you >know about an offer that you won't see in another 2,000 years.

Just >book a "WHY2K" week (Jan 2-9, 2000) and you can ALSO BRING A FRIEND FOR >FREE!!!! I would have booked this one before looking for a friend <G> (even though it comes one day after my 16 days' stay in Cozumel) had I been able to return on Jan 9 or Jan 10 on my Frequent Flyer Miles. The bulk rate of $1,500 roundtrip from ATL is not bad, but I already have enough FFM for THREE roundtrips to Palau and will have flown 75,000 paid miles this year to qualify for the Platinum Elite level. So, I am not going to pay cash for any Continental flight for awhile. That week is about the best time of the year to dive Palau. >NEWS/SPECIALS: CALL 1-800 DANCER (800-932-6237) to reserve your "WHY2K" >week right now! Airfare is available and reasonable. And, if your flight >is cancelled because of Y2K problems, we will give you a future trip on the >same vessel (boat only) for FREE ! Conditions may apply. -- Bob. P.S. This is not a spam. I am just passing on some info some Scuba-Ler's might like to know. I have no business affiliation with Peter Hughes or any dive operation associated with his Fleet.
