MOWI Shinty Club Profile
If you would like your Club profiled please contact your Regional Development Staff Member. We would like Clubs from all locations and levels.
How are the Club responding to the current serious challenging situation?
Players: Players have been keeping themselves entertained by carrying out various skills challenges and posting on the club’s Facebook page and keeping fit cycling and running. During the month of May, club members (mostly our ladies team) completed 1000 miles either cycling or running which raised a sum of money for charity.
Club Members: There has been plenty of reminiscing on social media with old photographs and tales of games gone by being shared by former players. Some ex-players have been providing insight into their favourite games and best players they have played with. A challenge has already been laid down by the over 30s to take on the under 30s when it’s safe to play games again so we will look forward to some (self-proclaimed) legends coming out of retirement to show the young guns how it is done!
Community: Club members have been actively involved in the community response to the COVID situation, regularly delivering food packages to those in need. Bute Shinty Clubhouse will be used as the distribution hub for Argyll and Bute Council’s food parcel delivery. This scheme provides around 500 food parcels to families across the island.
Sponsors: We are so grateful for the continuing support of all our generous sponsors:
Ardmaleish Boatbuilding Company
Ardbeg Mini Market
Ettrick Bay Tearoom
CLUBMARK LEVEL: Currently foundation level and we will be looking to use the downtime to work with our development officer to obtain the next level.
