together we are 'more
IMPORTANT UPDATE: 20th March 2020
In light of the current circumstances & to protect the health of our wonderful volunteers we have taken the decision to suspend our lottery until further notice.
If you wish to cancel your standing order you can do so at a branch of your bank, over the phone or via secure online banking.
If you choose not to cancel, any funds accrued will be split (unless you stipulate otherwise) in the usual way between the Club & the prize fund for the first draw when the lottery resumes.
Thank you to all who have supported us through the lottery over the years.
Stay safe & well & in touch.
Together more than ever, we are ‘more

Newtonmore Camanachd Club run a 3 number lottery that is drawn every week at one of four locations round the village. Tickets are on sale in a number of locations in Dalwhinnie, Laggan and Newtonmore including Dalwhinnie garage, The Monadliath Hotel, the Laggan Country House hotel, Grants garage Newtonmore, the Glen Hotel, the Braeriach Hotel, the Balavil Hotel, Newtonmore Post Office and the Golf Club Newtonmore. In addition to that a number of people sell tickets at the industrial estate and in some houses and residential facilities.
The draw takes place on a Saturday with the minimum prize fund being £200. If the draw is not won the prize increases by £100 each week until it reaches £1500 and it is then drawn till it is won.
Many people are finding it more convenient to play the lottery by standing order including Badenoch exiles. If you would like to take part in the lottery please download the attached form and send it to our Treasurer.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: April 2020 Highland Games Cancelled
In 2019 our stall sold over £500 in merchandise and our 50/50 raffle brought in over £500 as well..
The 2019 end of season dance will take place on Saturday 15th February 2020 at the Balavil Hotel with Shane Ward providing the disco. The 2019 1st team player of the year award will be presented at the dance.
A really successful event was held with funds being raised for the PTA through coffee and home baking as well as for the club through the BBQ. For the first time in a number of years Newtonmore won all three trophies. Many thanks to Colin Stewart for organising the evening.
The number of teams was up in 2019 and we had a high value raffle for tickets to Castle Stuart which meant we raised over £1800 as well as having a really great day. Many thanks to James Brannan for all the work he puts in to organising this.
The date pencilled in for 2020 is Sunday 26th July.
This takes place at every 1st team home match and will add over £2000 to club funds during the season. Sandra Grant would welcome help with selling tickets.
Sir Tommy Macpherson Memorial Trophy
Well it had to happen eventually. Having won the first four games since it was inaugurated in 2015 we drew the match then lost the penalty shoot out so the trophy is in Kingussie for the year. The match in 2020 will be on Friday 31st August at 1830 at the Dell as usual.
Jock Paul Mackintosh Memorial Trophy
Our Veterans 6s now includes a lady and a youngster as well as an over 50 in each team and is all the more entertaining. In 2019 we raised about £1000 from the bar and burgers and used it as a focus to sell summer raffle tickets. The date for 2020 has still to be confirmed.
It’s been going now since 1923 and is a fixture in the calendar for the first Saturday in December. In 2019 we took over £2400 in the sale from venison, home baking, the Xmas hamper, plus games/competitions. When merchandise, sponsorship and advance season ticket sales are added the figure was well over £3000. The only disappointment was the shortage of volunteers to run teas and coffees which we hope to do again in 2020.
We presented some player awards at the end of the sale. Young player of the year was Charlie Ferguson with the 2nd team player being Calum Grover who had won the young player award the previous year. The 1st team player award will be at the Dinner dance.
