Race Night
Watch this space for a date.

Highland Games
The 2019 Highland Games is on the first Saturday in August and will again feature a Merchandise stall and 50/50 raffle.  The Captains fundraiser in 2018 under Andy Macintosh had to be postponed due to injuries, but did take place on a chilly December day and over £250 was raised for club funds.

Shinty Dance
A very successful and enjoyable night was enjoyed at the Balavil Hotel who very kindly provided the meal at cost price which kept the ticket prices down.  Club President Norman Macarthur reflected on a very successful year with 7 out of 8 trophies being won by the two teams with the premiership Trophy being retained along with the Camanach Cup for a third year and the 2nd's having a clean sweep.  He thanked many volunteers to do so much to keep the club running.
Awards were made to:
Rory Kennedy - 1st team player of the year
Owne Fraser - 2nd team player of the year
Calum Grover - Young player of the year.

The 2019 dance will again be held in the Balavil Hotel on the first Saturday in December
and the music will again be provided by the Crash Banjos.

Williamson 6s
The annual Williamson 6s tournament was held on Wednesday 6th June 2018 on a glorius evening.  Kingussie beat Newtonmore in the Balavil Cup P1-3; Newtonmore defeated Kingussie in the Gergask Shield P4/5 and Alvie defeated Newtonmore in the Williamson P6/7.
Player of the tournament was Kyle Clark of Alvie.
All participants received a complimentary burger from the BBQ which also raised money for the club along with the sales of cans of juice.  The evening was run in partnership with Newtonmore PTA who also raised a sizeable sum for their funds.
