No Fencing Saturday The 26th of October
Unfortunately, there will be no training this Saturday at 10am due to the National Opens this weekend.
We Also Need help For Weapons Control…
We are running weapons control this year for nationals and need some members to work in some rostered roles spread over the weekend.
We are also running the cafe so not only could we use a hand with running it but we would also appreciate some tasty home baking and snacks.
Lastly, a big part of running a competition as a region means that we are required to help set up and pack down as part of the regional body. The set up for the competition will be Friday the 25th at 5.30pm at Wellington High School.
If you can help out we need help throughout the duration of the competition, so if you are interested in helping out please contact:
