"Big Ball in the Sand" OTL in Puerto Peñasco

In Cholla Bay is where the Santa Claus Club started. The founder of the group John Fowler and the group of people behind it, started it to benefit the children of Cholla Bay as well as the children in need of Rocky Point. They have always been focused on helping to make for a better life for those that are less fortunate. The Santa Claus Club is a nonprofit group and it relies on fund raisers, charity events and donations. John Fowler has been very instrumental in making weekly trips from the Phoenix area to Puerto Peñasco bringing blankets, clothes, shoes, bikes and numerous other things and takes his items to the poor barrios of Rocky Point.
This Over The Line Tournament will be held across from Wrecked at the Reef on Sandy Beach October 21, 2017 from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. There is plenty pf parking, but get there early

This is great event and remember the proceeds go to benefit less fortunate than us. The weather will be great and if you have little ones, take the time and go visit our new aquarium in the Mirador area near Capone’s Pizza. There is so much to do while you are here from just sitting on the beach to playing in the Tide Pools or go out to Cholla Bay and hunt for Sand Dollars.
Remember Rocky Point is only 1 hour across the US/Mexico border and approximately 4 hours from either Phoenix or Tucson. If you have any questions regarding traveling to Rocky Point please email me at Blog@Puerto-Penasco.com.
