We are planning to run as normal this coming Waitangi Day, however, we will be taking a break over Easter weekend break. Our timetable is as follows:
Time Table

    • Seniors – 6.45pm – 9pm

Last Week of Training 14th Till 19th

Hi all. We are finishing up for the year on Saturday the 19th of December. However, a few house keeping things.

Borrowed Gear

We need all borrowed gear returned by the end of the 19th of December so that we can complete a stock take of all the Club’s fencing gear over the Christmas break.

If you do not return your borrowed gear, expect to see an invoice in the new year.

Last Session

Our last session will be on Saturday the 19th of November. We will be playing a number of fencing games and will finish early for a shared lunch and pizzas. Bring a plate of treats if you wish or some money for pizzas.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
