This Weekend’s Sanctioned Tournament
This weekend’s tournament is getting to be a big event! If you haven’t registered yet, please consider competing. It is a sanctioned event which is why we have more participation from other clubs!
Event fee: $40
Remember, you must have at least your USA Fencing Access Membership. I’ve already e-mailed the participants that need to either renew or upgrade their membership: https://www.usafencing.org/page/show/698114-individual-memberships
Open Fencing on Thursdays!
Don’t Forget Thursday is OPEN FENCING! This is a great day to come out for extra practice. It’s also a day that we do a lot of epee fencing if you want to try your hand at that. Open fencing starts at 7PM. There’s no additional costs! Largely there are mostly teens and adults, but if you are actively competing and would like extra practice against some of our experienced fencers, come down and join us!
