Rock & Soccer II
In just one week, the spirit of Sonoran Sand Soccer will come alive again on Sandy Beach in Rocky Point for Circus Mexicus Rock & Soccer II! A huge ¡Muchas Gracias! to everyone who signed up to play this year. Because of your great response, we were able to double the size of this year's tournament to 100 people. This year's field includes players from 4 countries, 9 states and 2 genders.
Players, a few reminders: bring tight fitting socks or go to www.soccerinthesand.com to order (socks only, no shoes), send a team captain to JJ’s Friday night to pick up jerseys (or we’ll have them for you Saturday morning) and be prepared to meet on the beach in front of Wrecked at the Reef at 8:00 Saturday morning. Each team gets at least 3 games, bring your own water and good spirits.
Fans are also encouraged to stop by and cheer on the teams. Admission is free!
Wrecked at the Reef is providing live rock music from La Merca throughout the day, street tacos and plenty of cold beer and Mexican Moonshine. Wrecked is on the beach between Sandy Beach and Cholla Bay (pretend you're going to JJ's). Look for the only stop sign between the resorts and Cholla, and turn toward the Sea of Cortez where there should be a big sign on the beach.
We’re collecting any gently used soccer equipment for the newly formed Penasco soccer league supported by Mayor Zepeda. Balls, shin guards, jerseys, socks for kids or adults....we’ll take it!
And finally, stop by and say hello to representatives from the Larry D. Large Foundation www.larrydlargefoundation.org and check out the incredible work they do for the people of Rocky Point.
