The Camanachd Association AGM takes place online this Friday with a 7.30pm start.

Despite the effects of Covid, finance director Daniel Palombo will confirm a 2020 operating surplus of £16,440 after tax despite turnover dropping to £352,819; a decrease of £261,749 from 2019.

The association’s reserves increased to £172,852 as at 31 December 2020.

The numbers of adult female and youth registered players fell due to Covid restrictions whilst the completed fixtures record was similarly affected.

There are no resolutions to go before the AGM and it is recommended that individual membership fees and competition fees remain unchanged whilst insurance levels return to 2020 rates; they were discounted last season.

There will be a new option of a new enhanced personal accident cover rate for adults and youths.

Director Lyndsay Bradley stands for re-election. Lyndsay, who has responsibility for officials, is involved in shinty at all levels at Ardnamurchan and has coached the South U14 girls and the Scotland U18 Ladies team.

The AGM will be followed by a short plenary session to discuss the 2022 shinty season, the new Camanachd Association Strategy and how everyone can work together to ensure shinty continues to progress.
