2019 NABO Convention
Last weekend we celebrated NABO’s annual convention in Bakersfield, California hosted by the Kern County Basque Club who was also celebrating its 75th Anniversary. The weekend was full of activities for young and old, and was enjoyed by many. You will find the results of the pilota games on the Pilota Events page. It was our pleasure to present NABO's Bizi Emankorra award to Mayie Maitia, Anne Marie Minaberri, and Maite Curutchague. You can read their biographies on the Bizi Emankorra page. Txerriki winners were Marin Sonoma Basque Association for tripota, Billy Bookerberry for lukainka, and Michel Hardoy for txorizo. Zorionak deneri! We have put together a photo album of Friday and Saturday events for you so that you can too share in the festivities. Photos thanks to Lisa Corcostegui. Enjoy!
