Summer News

This is so very exciting, today we are launching our new website!!!!

We are so thankful for all the input and hard work it took to make this happen. We will be able to keep all our members, and friends up to date on events and news of the society.

I hope you all had a wonderful summer, we sure did. We had our summer picnic in August for all our members, and what a fun day. This day is very special to us as it is a chance to meet up gossip, and have some fun!!

This year we managed to have a game of football (soccer) which is always popular. Our very own Billy Edmondson was determined to play!!! Despite being in he’s early 80’s he was the very proud winner with a last minute header into the goal!!

The 152nd Scottish highland games was held on the hottest day in many years here in Pleasanton with temperatures reaching 118F!!!! Phew very hot!!!!- But it didn’t stop us all from having a fantastic weekend!!! Whisky tasting, Pipe Bands, Dancers and the Clan Village!!!!

Our very own Euan Houston finished first in the overall and under 16 categories at the kilted mile with a time 5.36!! congratulations Euan!!

Thanks to all competitors, entertainers, volunteers and everyone else who attended the 152nd consecutive Scottish Highland Gathering and Games at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. We’ll be back again next year on Labor Day Weekend (September 1 & 2, 2018).
