Rock and Soccer - Quickly Approaching!
Hola amigos y amigas,
With just over a month to go until the first annual beach soccer tournament at Circus Mexicus, we thought we'd kick things off with some tips, suggestions and misc info.
Please make sure your entire team is on Sandy Beach in front of the Sonoran Spa and Sea by 9:30 AM Saturday June 12 for check in. Matches start at 10, all teams will be playing at 10 or 10:30. Also, please make sure you leave your counterclockwise watch at home. We've got to keep this tournament on time or else the band will be without their singer for sound check. Not good.
Each team needs to bring their own equipment to warm up with, match balls will be supplied. Consider bringing some type of socks (no soled shoes) so you don't blister. Assume it's going to be hot although Poseidon normally blows a cool breeze from the southwest all weekend. If you have pop up tent(s) bring them along with beach chairs and your own water.
All of our team slots are currently full. But everyone is invited to come down to the beach and cheer everyone on. A limited supply of extra soccer jerseys will be available on a first come first served basis with proceeds from all things soccer going to the Larry D. Large Foundation benefitting several local charities.
Our Circus Mexicus partner Chango's Bar and Grill will be providing suds for sale and we'll have the requisite Mexican street meat taco stand. Please support them all weekend, gracias.
Circus Mexicus weekend starts with a pre-party at Four Peaks in Tempe on Thursday June 10th starting at 4... a great way to meet up and plan everything from caravans to contraband.
Don't forget the FREE Hot Dog and a Smile show at JJ's Friday night. Three bands (Railbenders, Jason Boots, Random Karma), no cover, just bring an appetite for weiners and household goods for La Esperanza children's home. The Mañanathon is Sunday afternoon for those who still haven't had enough.
Get your family, friends and enemies down to Rocky Point June 12 to watch you play during the day and party all night with the best band on the planet. Tickets for the concert are on sale at www.azpeacemakers.com for $30. Tickets will be also be available the day of the show at the gate for $35. Children are free with paying adult.
Lastly and most important... prepare yourself and friends for a killer night of rock n roll. Mariachis @6, Eddie Spaghetti with the Railbenders @7, and RCPM starting a long night @8. Come one, come all. Looking forward to meeting you all.
