May 4th is Star Wars day, we don’t have training that day so instead we’re going to have a bit of fun during this whole week.
Dress up in Star Wars theme, whether it’s a full costume, a T-shirt, or waving a lightsabre. Yes, on this one day we will relax the rules so you can fence in costume, provided it is a costume you can actually fence in. (No, you can’t use the lightsabre). There may also be prizes.
It is also bring a friend week! Introduce someone (friend, acquaintance, relative…) to the sport by bringing them to your training session with you. They’ll be able to join in with whatever you are doing, at no cost.
We will also welcome parents of fencers who would like to learn a bit more about the sport, showing you some of the basic moves, ideas and terminology so you can better understand what your kids are up to.
Each session will provide food and drinks so fencers, friends and parents can enjoy a social session and get to know each other a little better. It’s also a chance to show off your Star Wars merchandise.
If you don’t like Star Wars, you can dress up as Zorro in protest. It’s all fun.
