SOB’S is “South of the Border Singles” in Rocky Point. It’s a group of adult singles that meets once or twice a week to socialize, have dinner or breakfast, or other events. Wednesday’s 4-5:30PM cocktail hour, at Playa Bonita’s beachside restaurant is often followed by smaller groups for dinner at different restaurants. Sunday 9AM weekly breakfasts at various restaurants, have lots of coffee and great food to get the group planning the next event or trip adventure in the area.
Several retired members have been in this group for many years, with lots of neat stories about RP and its inhabitants! Some members are new semi-permanent arrivals, and others are weekend warriors, still working. The group diversity is growing and a lot of fun! There are groups of new friendships born thru SOB’s networking and social events. We take occasional day trips and multi-night trips to neighboring towns in small groups. Last year, the overall group, with a membership fee of $15.00US/year helped sponsor a lot of activities; a pre-paid Christmas Dinner at Playa Bonita, a 4 day trip to San Carlos, a pizza baking contest, and several pot luck dinners. 2013 has already sponsored a 3 day San Carlos excursion, with another trip to San Felipe in mid-March for the annual Arts and Jazz Festival. Monthly business meetings are the first Wednesday at Playa Bonita at 5:30PM., except a few summer months. All adult singles are welcome to join us!
