Central Opens 2020 – CANCELLED

Hawkes Bay Blades were planning on running the Central Opens tournament on 10th and 11th October this year. However, given the ever changing situation we find ourselves in with COVID-19 Alert Levels, it has been decided to cancel the event this year. It is with regret that we make this decision and we look forward to running this tournament next year.

Secondary Schools – CANCELLED

NZ Secondary School Championships – Cancelled

It is with extreme regret that following today’s government announcement that the country will remain in Level 2 until Sunday 6th September, Fencing New Zealand must announce the NZ Secondary Schools’ Championship in Christchurch will not go ahead as scheduled.

The Fencing NZ Covid Committee continue to monitor the situation and will meet again in the next few weeks to determine whether the tournament can be rescheduled and how we will proceed with any remaining National Events this year.

Covid Level 2

Unfortunately with the government announcing the move to level 2 there have been some changes made for the fencing club.

Presidents Cup

Presidents cup has been postponed to a further date. Unfortunately, we currently don’t know when this competition is going to take place but please keep checking your emails and the website for further updates in regards to this event.

Training

Training will continue as usual but with some caveats:

  • Saturday the 15/8 will be on as usual, ignore previous messages regarding its cancellation
  • We require all members & parents attending training sessions to sign in
  • Please ensure that if you are feeling unwell that you DO NOT COME TO TRAINING

Closing Comments

Keep calm, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at training this week.
