We had a great day in the sunshine at An Aird on Sunday with teams from as far and wide as Beauly, Kingussie, Aberdour and Inveraray. It’s testament to the parents and coaches that more than one hundred youngsters were able to take part in a fantastic day of sport, so a big thank you from the organisers for all the arranging and transport that went into it. Thanks also to the Camanachd Association for donating an international strip for the raffle, and thanks to all the volunteers who make the tournament happen every year.
More than £530 was raised between the snack bar and raffle ticket sales,
which will be donated to support disability shinty. The youngsters displayed
some top class shinty and in some cases even put the adults in the shade.
Daniel Toal, who won the skills competition in the P7 and unders category,
achieved a record score for the youth competition and even beat the majority of
the adults (including international players) with his impressive skills. A big
well done to Daniel and all who took part.
