The reviews are in, and Jim Dalton is one rockin' hombre!
"On a scale of 1 to 10, Jim's debut was at least an 11! "
"Jim Dalton was absolutely solid, did not miss a step."
"...damn that cat can play!"

Remember, you will need a passport or passport card this time. If you don't have one and you haven't applied for one, do it TODAY! Come June 1, the new passport rules go into effect, and customs officials at the border will be strictly enforcing them. An RCPM board member recently applied for passports for the entire family (five members) in January. The passports arrived in about 4 weeks. So please DON'T WAIT until the last minute to apply for your passport. Should there be a big rush of last minute applications come mid-May, your passport could be delayed. We don't want you missing out on what's sure to be one of the most memorable concert experiences of the year. So please send in your passport application information as early as possible.

There have also been some concerns in recent weeks about the safety of traveling through Mexico. Rocky Point is safe. It has not experienced any of the violence being reported in cities elsewhere on the mainland. As when traveling anywhere, use common sense; obey local laws and customs and conduct yourself responsibly. RCPM will continue to keep you up to date on the safety of traveling to Mexico. Stay tuned into www.azpeacemakers.com for the latest.
