Circus Mexicus Weekend


Friday, June 10

6 p.m. - Back by popular demand, PH's "A Hot Dog & A Smile" Charity BBQ at JJ's Cantina. PH will once again fire up the grill and serve his own Heaven on a Paper Plate. All proceeds go to benefit the children at Esperanza Para Los Niños Orphanage. You can find more information at Donations for household items such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, paper towels, brushes, shampoo, soap, etc. will be collected. Donations for hot dogs and soda for the BBQ appreciated. Once again, Friday night at JJ's also features an incredible lineup of music headlined this year by The Hickman-Dalton Gang. Jim and Johnny will be on stage with their guitars late into the evening. And they're bringing a few friends to play with them, including Tony Nascar of The Railbenders, and a certain hot dog server might jump in behind the drums. Other folks playing that night include Jason Boots, Tramps and Thieves and Random Karma.

We're also encouraging those who will be playing in the Rock and Soccer Tournament the next morning to pick a team captain and pick up your team's jerseys and schedules at JJ's on Friday night.


Saturday, June 11

8:00 a.m. - Rock and Soccer. Mandatory check-in time for players in the second annual Rock and Soccer Tournament. Check-in will be on the beach in front of Wrecked at the Reef Cantina. There will be three fields this year.

8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. - Soccer tournament! We're on a tight schedule, so we need players in place and ready to play at their assigned times. Failure to do so may result in your team forfeiting. We understand you'll be at JJ's the night before. But last minute hangovers or players claiming they canceled their wake-up calls won't excuse you from being late. At stake is a certain soccer-playing lead singer who could miss sound check! All proceeds from the event benefit the Larry Large Foundation. For more than 10 years, the Foundation has contributed over $1 million dollars to the people of Puerto Peñasco. The charity has built homes for families, bathrooms for the elderly, given clothes to families and put computers in schools. More information can be found at Spectators are encouraged to show up and cheer on the teams. Live music will be provided throughout the day from people playing gringo rock-n-roll. The event is free for everyone!

All teams will get a minimum of three games. Socks are encouraged as the sand can be a little rough in addition to really hot by the afternoon. No sand shoes allowed. Mexican pork tacos and other great food and drinks will be for sale at Wrecked at the Reef.

To get to The Reef, turn left at the ONLY stop sign after condo row on Sandy Beach on your way to JJ's. It should be easy to spot because there a couple of events going on, so there will be a lot of cars and the RV lot will be full.
