Souldivers contest winners announced

There was a lot to see, buy and win at the Duikvaker fair on 1 and 2 February. For example, the Rotterdam diving center Souldivers was present at the PADI EMEA stand with a competition. And because Souldivers is the only diving center in the Netherlands with its own diving travel agency under SGR's guarantee, a great trip could be won. By completing three questions you could win a diving holiday to the Philippines worth € 1795.00. There was of course a lot of enthusiasm for this, about 900 visitors to the fair filled in the competition.

Saturday 8 February the draw took place among the correct entrants, but what exactly were the correct answers?
1. How old do you have to be to start diving? 8 years
2. What does PADI mean? Professional Association of Diving Instructors
3. What does SCUBA mean? Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus

And last Saturday LUCIEN CRAFT from APELDOORN received a call from Marja Mulder, the travel manager of Souldivers: he is the lucky winner of the trip to the Philippines! Thanks to Souldivers, he can now make his dream of diving in the Philippines come true much earlier than he ever thought. He will soon be going to Rotterdam to collect his prize personally.

Despite the fact that there were actually no other prizes to be won, CHANTAL HOLLINK from DINTELOORD also won a prize. When asked about the meaning of SCUBA, she definitely had the most original answer: Snorkel Chantal Uit Bed Please. Chantal receives a snorkel from Souldivers!
The prizes are offered by 5* PADI IDC Dive Center Souldivers and Cebu Fun Divers in the Philippines.
