DUNSMUIR SCOTTISH GAMES (14 & 15 July 2007)
Oakland, California

Our seventh year at this local Scottish Games found us fielding a record number of players on Saturday for our lunch time demonstration match. The setting at Dunsmuir House is unique and beautiful, and for us especially fun to be in the very centre of the games. While the heavy athletes took a lunch break we took field and played a spirited game... check out the action!

In addition to our demonstration match, we manned an information tent at the corner of the field and spent our non-playing time looking for the next generation of Northern California shinty players!

After our Sunday match a number of our club members took a turn at throwing the 88 pound Heather Kincaid Memorial Stone. Tim Christopher and Max McKay topped our contingent with throws of just over 12' and 10' 6" respectively!
