Thursday session cancelation 10/03/22

Unfortunately Myself and Una are still feeling under the weather so we thought we would make the call that our Thursday training will be cancelled this week. Apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

Please note that the gear requirements for this competition are:

  • Plastron: Jacket & Plastron 1150N total 
  • Breeches: 350N 
  • Masks: 350N 
  • Weapons: FIE / S2000  

At this stage, classes should resume on Saturday as per normal.

No Fencing Saturday and Monday

I hope you are all well. Unfortunately, due to the Waitangi Weekend competition and me still feeling under the weather, we will unfortunately need to cancel this Saturday’s session.

For the senior fencers who usually participate in the Monday class, this class will also be cancelled due to the competition running on Monday also. 

Sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Fencing Resumes Thursday the 3rd of January

Fortunately, the test results for out coaches COVID test came back negative so we can resume training from this Thursday onwards.
As a reminder, our Thursday class runs as per below;

  • Junior class – 7.00pm – 8.00pm
  • Senior/Adult class – 7.00pm – 9.00pm

We look forward to seeing you all this Thursday. 

Fencing Postponed Monday 31st of January

Unfortunately, there was a recorded close COVID contact last Sunday at the Auckland airport. This means that unfortunately, I have had to get a test and self-isolate for the next few days before I receive my results.

This means that fencing on Monday is postponed this week. For our usual Thursday class, we will wait on the results of the test before making a call.

I am currently symptom-free which is very fortunate but I would like to encourage those of you who participated in the training camp and were flying home on the 23rd of Sunday to please get tested ASAP. More information on close contact can be found here.

Please stay safe everyone and I hope that we will be able to resume our scheduled training sessions as soon as possible.

Fencing Resumes 31st of January

I hope you all have enjoyed a long deserved break and are as excited as we are to get back into training.

We will be resuming training from Monday the 31st of January at St Bernards. Our class start times have gone unchanged and you are more than welcome to attend the sessions that you were participating in before the break. As a reminder, our schedule is:

  • Monday 7pm – 9pm – Senior and Adult fencers
  • Thursday 7pm – 8pm – Junior/beginner fencers
  • Thursday 7pm – 9pm – Senior and Adult fencers
  • Saturday 11am – 12.30pm* – Junior/beginner fencers

* Please note, at the discretion of the coaches, we have decided that it would be best if we cut the Saturday class by half an hour as we have found that 2 hours is a little too long for our younger fencers.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FILL IN OUR CLUB REGISTRATION FORM HEREWe require all of our club members over the age of 12 to have been double vaccinated and must be able to provide their vaccine passport if asked. This means that if you have not filled out our club registration form for the year, we are unfortunately unable to allow you to participate in our classes.
