Publicize Your Club Events in Astero
Have you ever read about a particular club's event in Astero and wondered, "How can we get our events out there?" Well, here is the answer: All you have to do is send your event information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can include it in Astero. Please provide event details including, place, time, fee, a flier or photo, and any other pertinent information that you feel may be helpful. If you prefer, you can also send your club's newsletter to this email, and we can find out what is happening and take it from there. Community events, that are not strictly Basque club events, are also welcome if you feel the Basque community would enjoy finding out about it. These may include, dance performances, exhibits, other festivals that the club, or Basque community may be involved in, etc. Looking forward to hearing from you all about your upcoming events!

If you have ever been to a Herri Kirolak (Basque rural sports) event, and wondered how to say something regarding it in Basque, search no more. A group at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) has created a series of dictionaries just for you. Three are currently available in Basque, Spanish, French and English and are dedicated to Estropada (rowing), Harri-Jasotze (weightlifting), and Aizkora (wood chopping) respectively.
