History of Sea Divers PartiesThe Sea Diver tradition of great parties with great food goes back to the early days of the club. Here we have a picture of a 1973 Club Eat In - note the keg of beer! Do you recognize these members? Larry Brown, Joe Scaffidi, Donna Mirka, Steve Maloney, and Laura. Donna, I don't know you but I love your outfit and hair! During the 1970's hot tubs were quite popular in California and many Sea Diver parties were combination Eat In and hot tub events. One current member, Peter Landecker, is still looking for his shoe from one of those memorable parties. Another time, the divers on a long trip from Cortez Banks were so desperate for a hot tub event, they warmed up the bait tank on the boat, the Toronado.
During the late 1970's and into the 1990's the TRW Sea Divers had about 2 Eat Ins a year and some fabulous Halloween parties. Betty Trenberth and Lois Musser were the primary organizers of these parties. Most were held at the Rebekkah Lodge in El Segundo. We had lots of great costumes but Walt Musser had to be the most creative. Year after year he surprised everyone including his wife with outrageous costumes!
The tradition of bouillabaisse parties started in the late 1970's. The original parties were at Veteran's Park in Redondo Beach after a beach dive. Many members came just for the Bouilliabasse, by-passing the beach dive, and at some point the dive was dropped. Some of the great chefs were George Hughes, Bill Garrett, and Allen Parker. For a bouillabaisse party, everyone brings seafood to contribute and in those days, quite a bit of it was freshly caught the day of the party.
The Sea Divers had a combination reunion and 25th anniversary party (it actually was our 27th year) on February 1, 1992 at the Hacienda Hotel. Both current members and those who were no longer active with the club were excited to come back for a visit. We all share fond memories of the dives, fun, and friends we have met through the Sea Divers. In 1999 a combined bouillabaisse and reunion was organized at the Port Royal Marina and the Marina continues to be our venue of choice. Check out the Pictures from 1999, 2001, and 2006!
