DFL 2022 FIJI Wrap up

Bula / Hello Everyone! That’s a wrap for Fiji 20, 21, ‘22 I hope you all got home safely from Fiji or your subsequent travels in the South Pacific or Australia/NZ! What an amazing week we had! It was great to see the Diving For Life family come back together after COVID and do what we do best – dive, celebrate & raise money. Thank you to anyone who bought raffle tickets, bid at the auctions or sold raffle tickets. It was through your generosity that we raised USD$110,000, which will get distributed via your dive club nominations, to health charities that cater to LGBTQ+ needs in your local area. The board has green lit a draft proposal to modify the way in which funds are distributed; we hope this will reflect the modern nature of the organization, and will allow every attendee to have a say in what charities receive the funds. We will be using this new process from 2023 onwards. Stay tuned for a future eBlast that will explain this. Remember- you can help DFL throughout the year by using Amazon Smile and American Airlines Business ExtrAA. As a volunteer organization, there are many people who work behind the scene during the year to make an event successful. And then when we are on the ground at the event, even more people offer their assistance. We thank you all for helping us do what we do. We know that you are all passionate about the event and […]

A Message from our President

For two years now we have been waiting to be able to get together as the Diving For Life family. With the world getting vaccination and putting procedures in place for international travel,  we can look forward to DFL 2022 in FIJI–Our 29th annual gathering. As you may have seen announced on Facebook, the Board recently held our Annual General Meeting via Zoom. After 15 years of service to the Diving For Life community, David Doom stepped down from the Presidency and the Board. David will still be a face at DFL–the DOOM REPORT may yet live! I want to personally thank David for all the work he has performed behind the scenes to ensure that DFL remains the successful and preeminent not-for-profit LGBTQ+ SCUBA event that it is. Our new Board member is Jeff Tennant. Jeff and his partner Bruce have attended many DFLs and are well known to you all. Jeff will be a great board member. FIJI SUNDAY OCT 9 – 16 Many of you have been patient and rolled your registration over so that at this point we have no diver positions available. We, the organisers, are waiting until early in the new year to allocate everyone to their rooms, after which we will do a final call on cancellations. IF there are any vacancies we will open these up. Those currently on the waitlist will likely get a spot. Fiji will run from Sunday to Sunday. We made this decision due to the effects of […]

Fiji 2021 Postponement Announcement

UPDATE ON DFL 2021 Fiji Hi Folks, Recently the Diving For Life Board met to discuss our up coming trip to Fiji in October. Fiji has had very low instances of COVID in the community. In fact flights into the country are grounded, and only returning Fijians are allowed into the country. Recently, Covid escaped for a quarantine hotel (when a citizen returns they have to spend 2 weeks in mandatory hotel quarantine) and got into the community. This one case turned into 4, and two major cities were locked down ( a government enforced stay at home order). Snap lock downs are a common thing in some countries, and cannot be predicted. Right now, it cannot be said when flights will resume into Fiji. In fact Australia is now not opening our borders until 2022. Even if we could get into Fiji, we don’t know what restrictions would be put on an event of our size. We couldn’t guarantee that we can hold a Diving For Life as we have in the past. The Board therefore has taken the decision to postpone Fiji once again until 2022 ( third times a charm). We are working with the resort and dive operator on the contractual impacts. Similar to last year we are also working on an election process to Roll over your registration, or Refund it. Once we have the technical side worked out, we will contact you again. Of course we are all disappointed, as we expected that after […]
