National U15 and Cadet Championship 2021 Results

First of all I would like to begin by thanking all of our volunteers for helping over the weekend of the competition. We ran an exceptionally successful weapons control and café this year and everyone who was a part of it should be especially proud.

Thank you Bordeaux Bakery

A big thank you goes to the team at Bordeaux Bakery for supplying a large amount of the delicious baked goods that we had on offer. They supplied us many different treats such as a large variety of Danish’s, brownies, rolls and croissants. If you are ever craving these treats again, I know I am, they can be located either on Thorndon Quay or at the Lower Hutt morning market on Saturdays. A link to their Facebook page can be found here and a link to their website can be found here.

Alternative Fencing Venue For Saturday 8th Of May

Hi all Saturday morning Fencers.

We have managed to book in an alternative venue for our Saturday class on the 8th and 29th of May 9th and the 19th of June. As mentioned in a prior post, we were unfortunately unable to use the St Bernard’s hall on these dates so we have had to seek out an alternative venue. We will be using Moera Community Hall for training in lieu.

Alternate Training Schedule

However, with this change of venue we are required to leave very promptly. Please refer to the times in the table below.
