Day 2 in Budapest

Barry Lewis had another successful day here in Budapest finishing in 5th (medals awarded to top 6) against a strong crowd and almost breaking a Canadian record in the 100 free. Siubhan & Adam started off their pool swimming. Adam had a great 100 breast, finishing 28th overall. Siubhan was happy to have a cheering squad who got to watch her get on and off the blocks multiple times as there was some sort of equipment malfunction.

Call for Volunteers: EMSC Casino – Aug 29 & 30th, 2017

Good evening EMSC membership,

The 2017 EMSC Casino is here! This August 29th and 30th (Tues-Wed) at Palace Casino, EMSC will host our next Casino event. These Casino dates, which fall roughly every 18 months, are the primary fundraising source for the club, helping to pay for items like coaching salaries, pool fees, and EMSC’s community involvement.

The Casino, however, cannot run without the help of volunteers like you! In addition to helping keep our club solvent and helping out of the goodness of your own hearts, volunteers will be provided with a reimbursement volunteer credit per shift worked which can go towards reducing your fees for next season. Volunteers do not need to be current EMSC members, so feel free to bring a friend along with you.

Signing up is easy on the following excel sheets on Google drive:

August 29th Shifts

August 30th Shifts

Though there is more information to give if you so choose, you really only need to fill in the field Full Name to reserve your shift.

There are only 36 shifts total, so be sure to reserve your shift as soon as possible to ensure your reimbursement credit.

If you have any questions or difficulty using the forms, feel free to email James Phelan, our club’s VP/Fundraising at
