Thoughts on the Season

As the spring advances and the summer gets slowly closer, we look back on the season and would like to take the time to thank some of the area clubs that welcomed our fencers while our club was closed for the construction in the fall of 2014:
Centre d'Escrime Excellence (CEE)
Club d'escrime Gadbois (GAD)
Club d'escrime Lagardère (LAG)
Club d'escrime Olympia Longueuil (OM)
Dynamiques de Brébeuf (BRE)
Seigneurs de la Rive-Nord (SRN)

This is the second time in recent years that Brébeuf has been able to help us out. In 2012, they generously provided their training room when emergency repairs left us without a salle d'armes for July and August.  This past fall some of our members were regularly invited by Gadbois, so even though guests are always welocme at EMR, and we were particularly please to return the hospitality and welcome several Gadbois fencers when schedule conflicts interrupted their training schedule.

Again everyone's generosity was greatly appreciated . . .

Un Gros MERCI à tout le monde

A friendly CMR Tournament

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu - April 25, 2015 , seven EMR fencers took the opportunity to compete in the second CMR competition of the 2014-2015 season. It was a friendly and fun tournament, which made for a great first competition experience for Jenneil Ifill in Senior Epee. It was also a great experience for Anastasiya, Anatoli, Egor, Ivan, and Kateryna, highlighted by gold, silver and bronze in under 15 sabre for Anastasiya, Egor and Ivan.  Links to all the results are available below.
Thank you CMR and Congratulations to Everyone!
Collège Militaire Royal de St-Jean (CMR) annually hosts 2 invitational competitions for their students as part of their Representative Sports Programme. These tournaments are for foil/epee in the late fall and epee/sabre in the spring. This spring's tournament was very successful: 36 épéeists (results: senior  / U15) and 37 sabreurs (results: senior / U15)

First Aid Course

Attention all club Members!

We are considering offering a Standard First Aid Course at the Club.

This 2 day course covers general first aid skills (treating injuries such as: cuts, sprains, burns, etc.), CPR level C (adult, child, infant) and AED (Automated external defibrillation), with certification valid for 3 years.  We have the possibility to hold this course at the end of May (23/24 or 30/31) for anyone who would like to get ready for the summer. EMR will cover the majority of the cost (normally  $125) so that we can offer this class to our members for $45 per person.

Whether you hope to add to your resume for a summer job; to have that extra security for your vacation; or just to be prepared for any accident at work, home or play; we think this is a great opportunity for all our members.

 If you're interest, we require a minimum number of people to offer this course, and we need to make a decision by April 30, 2015. Please email us, call or let John know in person, as soon as possible, if you would like to take this class now (before the summer), or if you would prefer a course in the fall.

As always, your input is appreciated.

UPDATE: May 1, 2015
As requested by the majority of interested members, we have schedule a 2 day First Aid course with St-John's Ambulance over two weekends (Sunday, May 24, 2015 and Saturday, May 30, 2015). Over the next few days, we will be confirming the dates with everyone who expressed interest.  If any other members are interested there is still room, so let us know ASAP.

UPDATE: May 13, 2015
Any attendees interested in an additional First Aid Manual should let us know by Thursday, May 15, 2015.  There is one manual included in the course, but if you wish to purchase additional manuals (French or English) on the day of the course, we will preorder them for you ($17 plus tax).

REMINDER: May 22, 2015
The first aid course will be held, this Sunday May 24 , 9am to 5pm and next Saturday May 30, 9am to 5pm.
