JOPLIN, Mo. — Scuba divers took a dip this morning for a worthy cause.
“Calypso Scuba” held their 22nd Annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest.
Nine divers were given two and a half hours to dive down, design, and cut their jack-o’-lantern.
The pumpkins were then judged by KSN 16’s/KODE Action’s 12 Josh Oldham.
All money raised from today’s competition goes to benefit “Charlie 22 Outdoors.”
“We are always so happy to help Charlie 22. Looking forward to having a great day. It’s a kind of cold and grey and damp day today, so it’s a perfect day to try and find something to do indoors,” said Valerie Earl, Calypso Manager.
Prizes were awarded to all the contestants.
The prizes consisted of a wrist diving computer, scuba equipment, and gift cards.
