SAFC: Happy New Year! First night back and start of a new Beginners course!

This week: New Beginners course starts

Please take the time if you can to say hi to the Beginners! We have six signed-up and pre-paid thanks to JD’s wizardry.

Note, any current Intermediates or other club members, you are welcome to join the course. There will be no additional cost for quarterly paying members. This is a great chance to sharpen some of your skills. If you are interested, please mention it to Giles and he will add you to the attendee list.

Next week: Sabre Night

Epee road trips 2018

If any Epeeist are interested in competing in event on the continent (I think we can start calling it that again), then Peter Eames and Simon Pink are motivated and interested in sharing travel costs. They mention that cost of entry is typically very low and that it is a great way to fence new people. Please contact Peter (an ex SAFC fencer) for more details.
