A little over a month ago, a gunman rained down bullets on hundreds of people as they watched a concert on the Las Vegas strip leaving several dead and injured. As the effects of that horrible crime lingers in the dry Nevada air, close to 120 plus Tauans from the Philippines and United States, including family and friends, descended into Sin City to re-establish ties, renew brotherhood and celebrate the 15th year since the establishment of the Tau Mu USA Foundation.
The three day affair’s main venue was the Treasure Island Resort and Casino, where most Tauans stayed at from October 27-29, 2017. The organization of this year’s reunion fell on the shoulders of the Vegas brods consisting of Bro. Dr. Romeo Kwan Chang, 13 Pieces of Silver, Bro. Dr. Solomon Nicolas Javier, Sweet Jams, Bro. Dr. Manuel Sioson Atienza, 14 Kilalang Tauans, Bro. Dr. Francisco Antonio Barros Corpuz, Fighters 13, Bro. Dr. Clifton de Jesus Martires, 13’s Got It, Bro. Dr. Jose Luis Rayos Berroya, 12 Tauan Sentinels, Bro. Dr. Melvin Ibarra Nario, 10 Commandments and Bro. Dr. Conrado Christian Dilig Concio, Vigilantes. Preparations for the event commenced about a year ago after the New York/New Jersey gig where it was announced that the annual fall reunion will be returning to Las Vegas this year.
