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.

A successful spring break at EMR.

A spring fencing day camp was organized from 2 to 6 March, for the students of Mykhailo Strashkin.  During the camp, the group developed not only physically, but also moved a step forward in technical and tactical skills.  Everyone showed a great desire to win, a desire to learn and work.    We hope that this is just the beginning of continued improvement and ultimate success.
