Attention All Saturday Fencers!
There is going to be a change of venue for training this Saturday the 2nd of November. This is due to a softball competition that we were only informed of on Tuesday taking place this Saturday in our fencing club rooms.
We will be training at Treadwell Street Hall instead of the grand stand. We have used this venue a number of times before but I have included a link to google maps below.
Training Time — 9.30am – 11.30am
Please note, along with the change of venue, there is also going to be a change in training times also. We will begin our session at 9.30am instead of the usual 10am start and we will be finisihing at 11.30am instead of 12pm.
Sorry for any inconvience that this has caused and we hope to see you there this weekend.
