NABO Regional Mus Tournaments

Mus Many Basque clubs have returned to limited in person activities, most of which have been combined with their annual Mus Tournaments.  This year, in the interest of keeping encounters smaller, NABO Mus has decided to hold regional Mus Tournaments, with winners of local tournaments advancing to the regional level, and eventually advancing to the NABO Mus Finals. To this end, the five NABO regions have been adapted a bit to include, Northern California, Southern California, Nevada, Idaho and Salt Lake City that includes clubs in Wyoming and Colorado. Regional tournament dates have been set for most areas including Northern California on October 24th in San Francisco coordinated by Valerie Arrechea; Southern California on October 30th in Bakersfield coordinated by Pello Urrutia, and Idaho’s tournament in Boise on November 13th coordinated by Tyler Smith. Salt Lake City, coordinated by Mayi Petracek, will be held on October 23rd. Tournament date is yet to be determined for Nevada coordinated by Anita Izoco. Complete information on each of these tournaments will be shared on NABO’s Mus page as details are firmed up.  For more information, email Pierre Etcharren NABO Mus Chair. Sorte on deneri!
