Happy New Year!

With the start of a new calendar year, we are now entering the competition season for high school fencing. I’ve pulled together a short list of competitions for our fencing club. Prior to each event, I will send out a sign-up sheet for the upcoming tournament with key information. If you plan to compete at an event, I will need you to return the sheet with the information requested so that I can make the appropriate arrangements for equipment and transportation.

I’m excited about competition season, and I’m looking forward to seeing how each of you will do this year! As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
