It all starts at around 12.30 when the Kayakers bring the Centenary Baton into the harbour. The Baton has travelled the West Highland Way with a team of County Fans and been taken up the Great Glen on water by Nairn Kayak Club. In the process the Kayakers smashed the record for crossing Loch Ness in a canoe from Fort Augustus to Dores. The baton still has to make its way to Station Park but first on Saturday there will be a march behind a pipe band to the Links Bandstand where fans will pause for a picture. There will also be a BBQ.
Everyone welcome, just bring something yellow and black. The Centenary Baton is on display in the Town Barbers window on the top of the brae until Saturday. Full time table of events on the poster in the Gurn sidebar. For a bit of background on this fundraising initiative watch this Gurn interview with Stephen Bain and Ali Nichol.
See you there - it's only once every hundred years :-)
