Mikel Markez & Noka at the JT in Gardnerville
The folks at the JT Basque Bar & Dining Room in Gardnerville are proud to announce a concert by Mikel Markez and Noka on June 5, 2014 at 8:30pm as part of their US tour. Many enjoyed these wonderful singers at the NABO convention last weekend in Bakersfield, but if you didn't get to hear them, you won't want to miss them in Gardnerville. For further information, please contact the JT at: 775-782-2074 or visit them on Facebook.
BSU Summer Soccer Camp
The Basque Studies Program at BSU let us know about a soccer camp in Boise this July that would coincide with the annual San Inazio Basque Festival there. But this is not just any soccer camp; the instructors at this camp would be members of the Athletic Bilbao Women's Team as well as some of the coaching staff from Boise State University's Women's Soccer program. Before going forward they would like to find out if there would be interest in such a camp, and so are asking folks to fill out a survey that can be found here. Tentative camp dates would be July 21-24, 2014 and it would be for both boys and girls. They hope there is enough interest to run this camp as it would be "a unique opportunity for all!"
A huge ZORIONAK to the Kern County Basque Club on a phenomenal convention and on the club's 70th anniversary! A great time was had by all and club president, Louis Iturriria, and the board of directors deserve special recognition for all of their hard work, along with the many, many volunteers that made the whole thing possible. For a taste of the weekend I again send you to EuskalKultura.com for some the highlights. Zorionak!
