The Euzko Alkartasuna Basque Club in Macachin Argentina is the host of this year's International Mus Championships September 22-October 1st. As such, the club created a promotional video that was originally part of Macachin's bid to host the tournament that is now being repurposed as a promotional spot to bring more visitors to the area. NABO representatives will have the opportunity to explore the city of Macachin and its surroundings first hand. Tiburcio Sarratea, and Francisco Vargas, representing Santa Rosa Basque Club, are this year's NABO Mus Champions. Pierre Etcharren, NABO Mus Chairperson, will also accompany the team on the trip.
