March Madness! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This Weekend Rundown sponsored by RPRMexico – Home of the Sonoran Spa & Sonoran Sea Resorts

March! In like a lion they say…  our lions this weekend can be found at the Municipal Gym where they’ll host the inaugural tournament of the Sonoran Wheelchair Basketball League. Viva Los Rolling Rockies! On a side note, given ongoing roadwork along Blvd. Benito Juarez the best way to get to the gym is along Ave. Zobarzo (straight down from Ley Express) on the north side of Maricopa housing community.
