The next big event for the fans is the Nairn County Reunion to be held at the Legion on Sunday the 29th of June, details here.   Graeme MacLeod recently gave fans an update on their "We Believe" facebook page, he said:
 "The Centenary Reunion will take place on Sunday June 29th at the Royal British Legion where the Team of the Century will be unveiled. A great turnout of current and former players and officials as well as supporters is anticipated. A souvenir programme is also being put together for this event."

Another big day in the fans calendar this year will be September the 20th, and it promises to be quite a spectacular afternoon, again from the "We Believe" page: 

"Future events planned include the Centenary March, which is going to fall on Saturday September 20th to tie in with the end of the sponsored West Highland Way walk and Great Glen Kayak.
Steven Bain, who is taking part in the kayak, explained that all of the kayakers will arrive in Nairn Harbour at around 2.00 pm and the pipe band will lead the kayakers, walkers and all supporters who wish to attend on a march up the High Street to Station Park for the home match against Deveronvale. This will be the final leg of the journey at the start of the West Highland Way in Milngavie to Station Park. There will be further publicity on these plans in the new season as it is hoped as many supporters as possible will attend the march."

Heather at Uncle Bob's Bar is organising a bus for those supporters who wish to meet up with Ali Nicol and his team who will be walking the entire West Highland Way at Kinlochleven for the final section  - details here.  If you want to walk the final leg contact Heather at Uncle Bob's.

Well done to the fans for having a fantastic launch. It really was an NCFC family afternoon with many fans and present players and their families there. It was also amazing to see so many past players and managers making the effort including; Ian Gibson (who took time out from his holiday), Neil Gibson, Ronnie Sharp, Derek Main, Colin Mackenzie, Mansell Craib, Richard Konzack, Tommy Macgillivray, and Innes MacDonald. Peter Macintosh Snr was there representing the other Directors who unfortunately were unable to attend due to other commitments. It was good to see so many women there as well with none of them in the capacity of 'tea maker'!
The book contains a wealth of information and history on Nairn County FC and is a must for all fans.
Really looking forward to the Players and fans reunion on Sunday 29th June in the Legion. Should be a great afternoon.
