This Weekend Rundown is brought to you by the NEW Rocky Point 360 Business Directory!
We are well into October’s activities in Puerto Peñasco! Shrimp boats are making their way back and forth into the harbor as the season marches on, road work around town is advancing, and it’s time to once again rundown the weekend!
El Golfo Run – Today marks the beginning of the biannual Rocky Point Times El Golfo Run. A notable absence from this Fall run will be long-time Rocky Point promoter and aficionado, and Rocky Point Times editor Tom O’Hare who passed away in September. 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!
