Ol’ Man Winter is still fighting us, but the rescheduled meet at West Lafayette will be this Saturday, February 1 at the Burstfield Gym (Salisbury and Lindberg). The meet is free for WLHS and Harrison fencers, and WL will provide electric equipment for us to use. So, if you haven’t fenced before, this is a great opportunity to fence in a live bout for the first time with little to no costs involved.

The doors open at 2:00 pm, and spectators are welcome (family, friends, school mascots, etc.). Since we will not have much time prior to events starting, perhaps we can meet about 1:15 pm at the Faith West Community Center to get warmed-up and stretched for the upcoming bouts (without gear). Leave a comment down below if you would like meet before the event for warm-ups.
If you will be competing, bring snacks and water since there will be no concessions. As always, if you have any questions, just let me know. We still have to keep an eye on the weather–the forecast is showing a 50% chance for snow on Saturday though I haven’t found anything suggesting any significant accumulation. If you’re on Facebook, stay tuned through our group page.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there!
