It was a pass fail in my class too

It was a pass/fail event, but a lot of things changed when we had a Dive Accident in Pool Comp, it was either Class 177 or 178, they backed way off on stuff for a little bit. A Congressman from MN claimed no Docs, HMs, Ambulance was around but our there were HMs undergoing Dive Medicine Training and doing coverage, plus a DMO with a Junior Doc and the Ambulance right where it always is by the loading dock. Still caused a lot of problems though, the Congressman went off on lack of safety, etc..total lies but did not stop the paper from printing his words. Apparently he was a US Rep when another kid did die in the past due to a water evolution, Apple Valley was the area I think, not 100% on that, been a wee bit of time.
