Following the turmoil which agitates it, the 5e chapter of the Brotherhood of Asparagus in Tarusate Country, which took place on Sunday May 12, promised to be tense. Around twenty friendly brotherhoods from the great South-West took part, even if the absence of cofradias from beyond the Pyrenees was deplored.

In the cinema room, the grand master, Claude Lassalle, surrounded by a dozen colleagues in green and white colors, inducted four dignitaries who swore to defend wherever they were, the sprinkle of sand from the Landes. And the one who will carry this message the furthest is Stéphanie Barneix, world champion in coastal rescue and author of several exploits, such as crossing 8,000 kilometers, in relay, on a simple rescue board, in the South Pacific, in the benefit of children with cancer. Cause of great importance to her who overcame four.

Many inductees

On May 20 in Pau, at 5:42 p.m., at the request of Tony Estanguet, she will carry the Olympic flame as a member of the scout community. “I appreciate the honor done to me,” she confided. All the Landes will be with me that day. I owe a lot to sport which has helped me through many challenges and my commitment in various capacities will find its culmination there because carrying the Olympic flame only happens once in a lifetime.”

Closer to the terroir, the other inductees are Alain Labarthe, asparagus producer, mayor of Bégaar from 2001 to 2014 and president of the Interprofessional Committee of Foie Gras Palmipeds, Jean-René Hauquin, beekeeper and member of the Panturon de Rion brotherhood , Daniel Lecardeur, member of the Bidaou brotherhood of Biscarrosse and the sibusate Jean-Pierre Lahillade on behalf of the Maïsadour asparagus producers.

Everyone handled the peeler with dexterity to peel the asparagus in public and enjoy it with a glass of Tursan. It remained for the mayor, Dominique Urolatégui, to renew his support for the brotherhood “which carries the colors of Pontonx high and which has its place in Europe Week”.
