Practice will be held tonight, 1/23. School is open and the roads seem okay locally. Please use caution and drive safe as always, especially if the temps dip back below freezing.
REMINDER: Practice will resume today for all fencers, including our intermediate group and our September beginners moving into that group. New Beginners will also have their first class today. All classes will start at 7pm in North Asheville.
Tomorrow will be the last class of our fall session. All fencers from the fall session will be able to continue to Winter session as part of the intermediate group.
At practice we’ll have a brief discussion of what happens after a cycle of beginner classes. The full scoop will be at the link below. Please feel free to ask Bren any questions at the end of practice.
Practice will be held today. Please also note that we are planning to be open Wed Dec 19th but closed Wed Dec 26th and will hold our first practice of the new year on Jan 2nd.
Our next chance for beginners to start is Wed, January 2nd, 2019 at 7pm.
If you would like to attend our free trial beginner class at this time, please email us to RSVP at FencingClubAsheville@gmail.com.
Once we get more RSVPs than we can safely squeeze into the gym we will close registration.
This applies to brand new beginners only. If you have fenced with us previously, or have fencing experience in general please come back and fence with us either in the intermediate class or at open fencing.
Our next chance for beginners to start after January will be Wed March 27th.
Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, our location will be closed and therefore we will not hold practice this Wed. 11/21. I’m Sorry we didn’t make an announcement earlier.
Enjoy the holiday!
Club T-Shirts are coming soon. The cost will be $20. If you’re interested please send the size you want (sizes are adult unisex S to 2XL) to us by email at FencingClubAsheville@gmail.com
Our next practice after tonight, falls on Halloween, 10/31. Since many fencers have holiday events we are expecting very light attendance. Beginners won’t miss anything in the normal class sequence if they choose not to attend that practice.
Bren will be around to give lessons at 7pm and Open fencing will happen as usual at 8pm, but we may close up early if attendance is spotty. If you’re planning to come, please be on time so we don’t miss you if we close early.
If you’re planning to attend holiday events instead, Have fun and be safe! Normal scheduled classes and practice will resume the first Wed in November, so get ready to sweat off those treats!
Please note that if you enjoyed the free class last week and want to keep going in our Fall Beginner class you need to complete the $10 USA Fencing Non-Competitive membership at the link below:

See everyone tomorrow! Check out some of these bouts if you want to get excited about your first foil bout! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBEtKw56qm0
Our beginner class will start next wed, 9/12. Class is full and we have already sent out notifications to those on the wait list whether we had room for them or not.
