First of all, let me apologize for those of you who attended the picnic who I did NOT get a chance to meet. (I also apologize for the extra hot weather...but I had nothing to do with that.)
Now, let me say the picnic was wonderful, and I had the chance to meet "lagun", who is a wonderful person. I'm sorry I didn't have longer to chat, but I was in the middle of lunch duty...since we're club members who actually want to volunteer and work, we're in demand (even if it is the unglamorous 'table cleaning' duty!).
The steak for lunch was great, but the lamb and txilndrón was even better at dinner. They also had chorizo sandwiches for sale at the side window.
This year's entertainment, in addition to the local dancers, included a group from Zuberoa in the French 'Pays Basque'. We left befor the evening's dancing began, but according to my wife, the band took so long to get set up, that when the equipment was ready, they had already retired to the bar. What a shock
There are a number of Basque clubs around, and those of you in NV, CA or ID may find another big event close to home in the coming months. Check out NABO\'s web site
