I’m sure we’re speaking for the whole club when we wish Cameron Park (Coach Helen and Graeme’s son) and Emma Christie (Jonathan’s big sister) the very best of luck in next week’s ICG. Both swimmers swam for RASC before moving to EK for some extra training hours.

Watch 15 year old Shiwen Ye come from nowhere to win the world championship 200m IM! Good lesson in finishing.

This from the ICG organisersâ€¦Can you please let your under 16 volunteers know that we will be in touch soon to let them know when to come along re training and the event itself.
And alsoâ€¦‘We need another 6 under 16 helpers as bag carriers/medal carriers for the Childrenâ€™s Games.’
If you can assist, can you help Lindsay know ASAP.
As you know each year at the Mini League final there is a raffle and the money goes to CHAS, for your informationÂ below is a copy of a letter sent by them regarding an open day, if you are interested please contact CHAS direct. ‘The Robin House open days are on 28 and 29 September and you and members of the Clyde Coast Leagues are most welcome to join us and see first hand how your donation has been used to support the children and families at the hospice. No families will be staying during the open days and we will provide refreshments. The guided tour takes around one hour and ten minutes and must be booked in advance. Tours go round in groups of eight from 9.30am until 7.00pm. We would be delighted if you could spread the word and pass on this invitation to as many as possible.’
If you’re in Glasgow this weekend 23rd – 24th July, why not pop into the City Chambers between 12 and 4 to race a Commonwealth Games swimmer on the Wii!

As well as the fantastic portraits taken at the disco, Denise Noone took some great action pics at the pool in the afternoon. Denise has given us these free of charge so feel free to download and print out â€“ please remember to thank her if you do!
