After the mayor’s welcoming remarks, the board members, chaired by Nora Idoeta, presented gifts to all the participating delegations as well as to the women participating in the tournament. As a thank you for supporting this event, they also gave him a typical Basque beret.

It should be noted that Saladillo is hosting the National Championship for the second time, having already received this honor in 2013.

The campaign lasted until Monday and ended at noon with lunch for 80 people and the award ceremony.

On this occasion, the Organizing Committee presented several gifts and announced that the 44th National Championship will be held in La Plata next year.

Visibly moved, Daniel Altamira thanked everyone for their pleasant presence and addressed very moving words to Héctor, his father: “We have enjoyed three days dedicated to Basque culture, and that makes us proud… How beautiful the mousse is!” He gave me many friends, but above all, my father.”

For his part, “Tito” Altamira acknowledged the trust that the Basque center had in them in organizing the championship.

Satisfied with the results, the President of the Argentine Mus Federation, Fernando Mujica, said, “The way they received us in Saladillo was really a luxury.” We congratulate the people of the Basque Center because it has met expectations. We take very nice memories from it; it’s a great family.”

At the end of the event, Mayor Salomón also congratulated the Itxaropen Center, whose members are characterized by agitation, intensity, and also very generousness, since during the pandemic they had the gesture of ceding their facilities as a field hospital to house the patients of COVID. “It’s an institution that not only works to preserve the traditions of Basque culture but also has a very human side for the good of the community,” he added.
