El Golfo Run – Today marks the beginning of the biannual Rocky Point Times El Golfo Run.

But, the Run must go on!  Golfo Runners will make their way on 4x4s, over the sands, to El Golfo de Santa Clara before returning to the area on Sunday, the 20th where there will be a TOAST to TOM party at Tom’s Ranchito around 2 p.m. Sandy says the Toast is for all Tom’s fans and friends!
