Ok so you see a diving competition, what prize would make you enter? No silly suggestions please, just a bit of feedback on what you think a decent prize would be?  Thanks all.

<font color='#000080'>I'd enter anything, could always sell it in the unlikely event of winning. But holidays would tempt me most for myself.

Always bearing in mind that some reg sets can cost the same as a trip to the Red Sea nowadays! Or a dive weekend off a UK hard boat!

If we are talking about buying tickets then the prize would have to be a holiday or lots of money to spend at my LDS. If it was an internet competition and free to enter then any prize is better than nothing.

I won a Tusa mask in a raffle last week. I have never won a raffle before in my life, the fact that the mask dosen't fit makes no difference!!!!

Hypnotherapy, for the wife!
So when I said I'm going diving all this weekend and next and the following one she'd say
'Yes dear, and what time will you be home so I can clean your kit, make your tea and have sex with you'
Probably not going to happen, but I live in hope.

An all expenses trip to the great barrier reef for a month...with at least 2 weeks of this on a top class liveaboard diving the sites that are out of the reach of the day boats...

As I doubt that I will have saved up enough money to travel there before it disappears forever!!!

I enter any competiton I see, most of them are free so why not. Only ever won one thing, a £90 Citizen dive watch in March, not bad for 2 one-pound raffle tickets though

A Reg set would be ideal for me at the moment. Mine are "Donald Ducked" and I can't afford a replacement. Been borrowing Dees for 2 months now!

If you talking about a sensably priced prize then I would sugest the type of thing most divers dont have. My first choice would be a decent umbilical torch. £340 list for the 10W HID from Halcyon is a good start.

Probably 75% of the divers I see on boats have rubbish tourches or good tourches that are hand held. A good umbilical torch is much better and would make a realy positive diferance to the winners diving experiance.

A 10-day liveaboard trip to Cocos Island or the northern part of Galapagos, including return flight from Europe, transfer, a night or two in a hotel each end etc etc. You should be able to arrange it for under £4000.
