Camanachd gu leor a’ dol fhathast!
Plenty of shinty on the go even though the league season has come to an end.
First up is the first ever Sir E Scott V Nicolson Institute shinty match of the year (indeed ever), which will take place in Tarbert on Friday 16th September at 2pm.
Then on the Saturday, lots of the boys are away to the Bught Park to hold back Dukey if he gets out of control whether Newtonmore win or lose! Actually we hope to have a big presence to ensure that we stay in the minds of the Camanachd Association in the lead up to the decision on league entry. If you are travelling to the game, wear your club colours and encourage any neutrals you know to do the same. Turn the final Blue and Black!
Then on Wednesday 21st September we are playing the Northern California Camanachd Club (& a few ringers from Skye) in an International Challenge Match – this is the first time they have been over to Lewis so get along and play or support the club, starting at 6pm at Bayhead.
We will be training with the Americans on the Thursday (as long as they get around the island quickly/safely enough with Diablo looking after them)
Then on the Saturday 24th the first Causeway Shield between Lewis, Harris and Uist at youth level will take place in Tarbert, starting at 11am. Senior players should try and get along and help out with refereeing etc.
All in all its nice to be busy with the Mod Cup on the horizon on the 15th of October.
