SOL Foundation

The first weekend of the 8th Annual Golden Buoy Competition fundraising was a fabulous success! Entertaining costumes, a few three-legged stumbles, and lots of cheering up and down the street in West End left everyone feeling elated. While the total amount raised has yet to be announced, I can personally vouch for the impressive crowd of three-legged ambitious drinkers so I’m sure the end result will be fantastic.

Next up in the Golden Buoy events: Horseshoe Tournament! Hosted by Scuba Roatan, another popular dive shop here in West End, the Horseshoe Tournament will be held at Margarita Grill, which is on the beach at the far end of West End next to Barefoot Ronny’s. That’s a great decision since the beach offers more space in that area, plus fewer children and dogs running around to be potentially horseshoed themselves.

Entrance fee per team of two is L500 (that’s $25). There’s a prize for the winning team, and any team that pre-registers is entered into a raffle drawing as well. So get over to Scuba Roatan ASAP and register your team!
