The celebration in San Carlos will take place at the same time as the one in Michigan, and will be held at the Captains Club on Sunday, October 30 at 2:00pm.

Together Against Cancer

Research shows that 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime, and it is the most common cancer among women.

Early detection is the key to increasing survival rates. Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health. Women under 40 with a family history of breast cancer should consult with their physician about when to begin mammography screening.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To bring focus to this important health issue, MDS Lab & Imaging is offering deeply discounted prices on Mammograms and Breast Ultrasounds at its Integrative Health Care Facility right here in San Carlos.

For the whole month of October and November, Mammograms and Breast Ultrasounds will be 50% off! 

The regular price for a mammogram is 1,290 pesos, and the discounted price is 645 pesos. The regular price for a breast ultrasound is 1,020 pesos, and the discounted price is 510 pesos. That is a combined savings of almost 1,200 pesos! So tell your sister, mom, friend, or neighbor, and come in to take advantage of this special time-limited deal.

MDS is working for the community! For every 10 patients that take advantage of this October special, MDS will donate 1 free mammogram to someone who could otherwise not afford it. Also, for every 50 new followers on Facebook, MDS will also donate a mammogram. Click here to “Like” MDS Lab & Imaging. Have a suggestion for who could benefit from this FREE mammogram? Call or come into MDS and let them know! Selections will be made by raffle.

With state-of-the-art medical equipment and the clinic’s expertise, your experience at MDS will be professional and worry-free.

To take advantage of these time-limited offers, book your appointment today. Call now to make your appointment at 226-2060.

This Week’s Special Events

First Birding Group Outing of the Season, October 27

Hola Birding Enthusiasts,

The first of the season Birding Outing will be held this Thursday, October 27 at 7:30am. We will meet at the Esterito Cafe located at the end of Bahia San Carlos on the road out to the west side. It is expected to be quite hot so bring your sun screen, hats and lots of water. We will head out to the El Palmar settlement pond so bring your binoculars and a folding chair and we will try and find some shade and observe the birds as they come for water.

If you are not familiar with our group, it is a very informal group of birders of all levels who get together once a week to go to interesting birding spots and then out to lunch afterwards. All are welcome to join us.

San Carlos is an excellent place for birding – we have a large number of species that are relatively easy to spot. Pictured is an Osprey hunting for food in the Sea of Cortez.

Día de los Muertos celebration: Mexico’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

The UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), besides maintaining a list of World Heritage Sites,
also keeps a list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. These are traditions or living expressions which are passed down through generations in the form of oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, or knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe.

UNESCO proclaimed the “Indigenous Festivity dedicated to the Dead”, or Día de los Muertos celebration, as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2003 and this proclamation was inscribed in 2008.

El Día de los Muertos is a tradition and celebration that has been a part of Mexico’s culture for over 3,000 years. This tradition has evolved over time and different regions of Mexico have different ways of celebrating.

It is a special occasion in which Mexicans remember and honor their family and friends who have passed on. The festivities take place each year from October 31 to November 2. The spirits of the dead are thought to return at this time to visit their relatives and loved ones, who prepare special offerings for them. Click here to learn more about Day of the Dead in Mexico.

Watch UNESCO’s interesting video on Día de los Muertos.

You can join in el Día de los Muertos festivities at Guaymas’ Festival de la Calaca. See above for more information.

Fishing Report

Summer doesn’t want to end! Even with the wind today, the sun still felt hot. When it’s not blowing, which has been a lot, it has been very warm. We had thunderstorms pop up, and even have a category 4 hurricane far to the south. The water has been 80 – 83.5F, and even showed 90F in the middle on Monday.

The fish though I think are expecting a change. A few bonita are coming up, along with Sierra in close. My friend’s jigged up a few yellowtail at the Island, and another boat caught them on the other side.

One big change is all the billfish and dorado showing in close. A few boats released up to five marlin over the weekend. My friend’s caught a small Blue 400 yards out, and we caught a 200 pound Black in the middle of the Bay. Today we caught a marlin about 80 yards off Deer Island, and a 14 pound dorado twenty yards off Doble. I missed one big sail right outside the Seamounts. We’ve seen packs of marlin on small bait, and most within a mile. It looks great 22 miles out, but we’re saving fuel where we know the fish are.

There has been some great inshore activity. There are some larger Roosterfish around and a number of big jacks. As long as there is good bait, water temp isn’t as important, and it is nice and blue right up to shore at times. There’s still plenty of time for winter to arrive, and I’m warm blooded anyhow.
