Shinty in Kelso… Washington that is!

Northern California Camanachd will be playing shinty in Kelso today. Not Kelso Scotland, which would be unusual enough, but in Kelso Washington!

The Kelso Highlander Festival will see the first meeting of three US shinty clubs - Northern California Camanachd, Oregon Shinty and Washington Camanachd. The matches on Saturday 11 September will create a little piece of shinty history, quite possibly the first meeting of three non-Scottish shinty teams ever!

More information on the event can be found at the City of Kelso website.(MRB 9/11/2010)
