Helpful Tips for smooth scheduling
Scheduling request should be made in a timely fashion, as to allow 2 days advanced notification for the property owners.
Most requests will be processed within 48 hours of request (assuming all liability release forms have been received).
Double check the spelling of each diver's name and try to match it to what they submitted on their waiver (makes the verification process quicker)
Prior to submitting a quarry request, you may find it beneficial to check the “Event Calendar” (above) to see if there are any other large groups already scheduled.
