2016 NABO Mus Results
This weekend 42 Mus teams, representing NABO Basque clubs, gathered in Lincoln, CA, to compete in this year's National Tournament. Hosted by the Iparreko Ibarra Basque Club, home of last year's Mus champions, teams competed for the honor of representing NABO at the International Mus Tournament that will be held in Donostia this fall. At the end of the day, Alberto Blanco and Pedro Sanz, representing the Fresno Basque Club, came in first, with second place going to Peio Urrutia and Miguel Irigoyen from the Ventura Basque Club. Zorionak to our winners, and thank you to everyone for participating.
