Lembeh Gulen Critter Shootout Day 7 – 3rd & Final Round “Fish” – Open For Voting

Lembeh Gulen Critter Shootout Day 7 – 3rd & Final Round “Fish” – Open For Voting

Last night’s deliberations among the Lembeh Team regarding which images to submit for the public votes were much easier than expected – the only problem that we encountered was having too MANY great images to put forward. We think that the final 12 that made the cut showcase some of Lembeh’s most unique and sought after critters. Will they be enough to beat the Norwegian’s cold water fish selection?

There’s nothing more that can be done except wait for the public to vote and keep our fingers and fins crossed. Whatever the result, it has been a fantastic week here in Lembeh and we’d like to say a huge thank you to our team leader Tobias Friedrich for all of his help, guidance and tutoring, also to Sascha Janson, our own Photo Pro who has been ready at the drop of a hat to (literally) dive in and help. All of our Dive Guides who found our participants so many of Lembeh’s iconic critters, Dive Centre Manager Lauren Siba for co-ordinating numerous boats going out on different schedules and for making sure we got to go to the best sites at the right times, Petra and Morten the Managers of Lembeh Resort for providing amazing food to keep our strength up and the most comfortable accommodation in the Strait, thanks to all of the team at the resort but most of all a massive thank you to our 7 participants who have dived hard, trained harder and have been in high spirits throughout. Thank you, Greg Sherman, Rich Charlton, Debbie and Jerry Arriaga, Nick More, Martin Gerard and Wayne MacWilliams.

A final thanks to Team Gulen who have given us a run for our money so far and kept us amused with their hot tubs and antics. It’s been a great competition right to the end and whichever team takes home the Gold Pot of prizes which includes liveaboard vouchers from World Wide Dive and Sail, Dry suit vouchers from Ursuit, resort stays and dive packages and many more diving goodies – they have definitely earned it!

After Rounds 1 and 2 we are still behind by 1% so remember to vote – we need your help! Voting closes at 2pm Norway time / 8 pm Lembeh time and can be accessed here: https://tradablebits.com/tb_app/436027 – Only ONE vote per person so please choose carefully.

Who will it be? Norway or Indonesia? Wet suits or dry suits? You vote, You decide.

As soon as the results are in we’ll be posting them on https://www.facebook.com/crittershootout with a full report and round up on www.lembehresort.com to follow tomorrow. Get voting, and stay tuned…….
