The Camanachd Association, Governing Body for Shinty, Scotland’s most iconic team sport, held their annual general meeting at the West End Hotel, Fort William on Friday 24th November.

At the AGM President-elect Keith Loades was appointed President of the association having served three years as a director

Keith Loades, President of the Camanachd Association, said:

“Having been involved with the sport of shinty all my life and having enjoyed the experience and having made a large number of friends I wish to give something back to the sport now.

“Recent appointments to the Board and to the staff have strengthened the Association and whilst outgoing and President Jim Barr will be a huge loss to the Association I look forward to continuing the good works and initiatives which he has created during his term in Office.

“My aim is to leave the Association in as good or better position than when I take over and we can do that by working together with our members to implement the new strategic plan for shinty.”

Daniel Palombo was voted on to begin his second term in office as a Director whilst Colin Cameron and Wendy Chamberlain were formally voted on to the board having served as Co-opted Directors over the course of the past year.

One portfolio change that has been confirmed is that Steven Mackenzie will be taking over from Keith Loades as Competitions Director.

The board of the Camanachd Association wish to pay tribute to the work of outgoing President Jim Barr who leaves the Association with our deepest gratitude and appreciation for his leadership and commitment to shinty during the past 9 years.
