Fencing all Summer

As usual, the club will be running our normal training sessions all Summer - rain or shine.

The class runs from 7 to 9:30pm every Thursday.

 

Holiday Period

Our last night training before the Holidays will be Thursday 13th December. We will start back on Thursday 3rd January 2019.

We will have a Christmas night out at the Atholl Arms at 7pm on Thursday 20th December. They have their feastive food menu available.

Beginners Night - 4th Oct

Give us a couple of hours of your time and we will teach you how to fence. Bring a friend - it's better to learn together. There is no charge for this course. The class will run from 7 to 9 pm on Thursday 4th October.

All specialist equipment will be supplied by the club - this will be worn over your own clothes. Wear clothes you will be comfortable working out in - but no shorts due to safety concerns. You need to bring some indoor sports shoes with non-marking soles. The building has changing rooms and showers available.

New coach

We are delighted to welcome Calum de Sainte Croix as the new head coach of GWEFC - he is the son of Graeme (aka Dusty) who was our founding coach (some years ago).

Calum brings a wealth of coaching and competitive fencing experience - also, refereeing, armoury, competition organisation, film extra-ing.

 

Farewell Mark

Tonight will be Mark’s last night coaching at GWEFC - he is planning on more time on the other type of piste.

We look forward to more Facebook updates from his skiing and biking adventures. Also, expect to see him back at GWEFC as a fencer.
