Club BBQ and Fencing Xmas Market

Our annual Presentation BBQ, where we enjoy food together, hand out medals and awards, and generally have a bit of fun.

Speaking of awards, nominations are now open!  Nominate people for serious awards like Most Improved, Fun awards like “Most Spectacular Equipment Failure”, or make up your own award just because they deserve it.  Send nominations to any committee member.

This year you are also invited to bring any new or used fencing-related items you wish to sell at our Fencing Xmas Market. Naturally you should also bring some cash for those last minute gifts and impulse purchases!

Congratulations to Tim Davis for another great result in New Zealand

Congratulations to our sabre coach Tim Davis for another set of outstanding wins in New Zealand. At the New Zealand National Championships, Tim won gold in sabre, silver in foil and bronze in epee. He also won the trophy for overall best fencer.

We hope that you had a great holiday there afterward, in case they never let you back in to make off with more of their medals.
