The Guillermo Larregui Basque Club in Chacabuco is already warming to get through a 2017 that is full of activities. The first in an extensive list is the “BAC,” but the dance performances will continue at other area festivals. The Basque Club will also be the site of the National Mus Tournament, an event that organizers are anxiously awaiting. And a group from Chacabuco is getting ready to travel to the Basque Country in September.
Chacabuco, Argentina. Mus is the first activity to resume at the Guillermo Larregui Basque Club. In hopes of determine what team will represent the club at the National Tournament, the Basque club has held two of the four qualifying tournaments. The first winners are Hugo Rato and Heber Rodriguez, with Hugo Nicoemo and Luciano Gatti coming in second. During the next few weeks, two semi-final tournaments will take place to determine who is in the finals.
The two winning teams will be the ones to play in the name of the club hosting this year’s National Tournament in Chacabuco. The tournament will take place June 16-18, at the Guillermo Larregui facilities and will coincide with the celebration of the 28th anniversary of the institution. Remember that the National Championship decides who will represent Argentina at the World Mus Championships that will take place in the United States later this year.
