Last Update of the Year!
Happy Holidays! This is probably the last update of the year and it’s been a great year! Many fencers started competing in not just our local events, but sanctioned, regional, and national events! A few fencers earned or re-earned their ratings this year as well! The club got some new equipment and new fans! Although we always do lose some fencers and we’re sad to see them go, we have a lot of new students this year!
Fencers participated in one last event at The Southern RYC/RJCC/ROC at Myrtle Beach, SC. Results can be found here: https://fencingtimelive.com/tournaments/eventSchedule/A9E2EC3B25284CB09AC8228EDEFFB187#today
