OUR FIRST NCCC TOURNAMENT!
We held our first inter-club tournament at the inaugural Livermore Scottish Games on May 15-16 2004. The field was fantastic, the weather superb and the matches excellent (three out of four games went to overtime periods), and we even enjoyed several additional pickup games during the weekend. The club had a chance to show off our new jerseys and we were able to watch and learn from special guest (and native Scottish Shinty player) Ross MacPherson who joined in both as a player and referee during the weekend. A good time was had by all!

More pictures will be added over the coming weeks...
