Who's Who at PASC

Keith Anderson - President 

Keith Joined PASC over 30 years ago when he was 8 years old.  He has been on the management committee for the past 20 years as a committee member, water polo convenor, assistant president and now as president.  He is also co-coach of the portobello senior team.  Keith has also been juvenille, intermediate and junior PASC swimming champion at one time or another.  Keith has played water polo for Portobello all his life and has played in the Scottish junior team, under 21's and senior team. He represented the GB senior team in 3 European Championships and also played for Great Britain Universities water polo team at the world student games.

As  President he is responsible for the overall direction of the club and for ensuring that the club is run effectively and efficiently.  Much of this is done by trying to co-ordinate the various convenors and the work that they do.

 John MacDougall - Swimming Convenor

Like so many others, John started as a volunteer after his kids joined the club (Jenny in 2001, Scott the following year). He is a past president of PASC ('05 - '09) and a swimming judge so you're most likely to see him dressed in white as an official at galas. His role as swim convenor means liasing with the coaches, managing the competition schedule and running the Hy Tek meet entry system. He is the man to contact with questions about competitions, both internal club events and all of the external events that we attend.

John also represents the club in some external activities, sitting on the East District Swim Committee and annually attends the Scottish Swimming AGM. This year (2011) he is also helping with the Edinburgh Schools organising committee. Ten years ago, he was never near a swimming pool. Now, he's never far away from one (well, he does live close to the Porty pool).

Kate McBain - Assistant Secretary/Treasurer

Like most other Committee members, Kate started out as a parent helper.  Her two children have been members of the Club for over 4 years and she became a member of the Club's Management Committee 18 months ago.  Kate's main responsibility is to collect all the gala fees, so you can guarantee that most parents run and hide when they see her coming!  Kate also provides support and assistance to Shirley Lonie and Alison Connelly and can occasionally be seen at galas with a stopwatch in her hand.

 Shirley Lonie - Swimming Secretary

Like most other Committee members, Shirley started out as a parent helper. Her child has been a member of the Club for over 4 years and she became a member of the Club's Management Committee 9 months. Shirley’s main responsibility is to call committee meetings and AGM, prepare agenda, take minutes and provide officers with copies. Deal with the day to day running of the club including correspondence. She can also occasionally be seen at galas with a stopwatch in her hand.
