USA fencing non-competitive membership link is below. Non-competitive or better is a club requirement for all members and those starting beginner classes this month. See everyone tonight!
Tonight is the first class of our winter Beginner Class. We’re expecting a pretty full house, so if you haven’t already called, emailed or spoken to me to RSVP, I’m afraid you will need to wait until our next session. Next Chance for beginners to start is on Wed, March 7th.
Note that we are located in North Asheville off Merriman / Beaverdam.
There will be no practice the Wed before thanksgiving, November 22nd. Practice will resume the following week, 11/29.
See everyone tonight!
Practice Tonight! (9/13) All fencers, new and experienced, please make sure you have a current non-competitive USA fencing membership. https://member.usfencing.org/
Registration is now CLOSED for our beginner class starting tomorrow. If you’ve already communicated with one of the coaches
(Todd Wilson or Bren McAneny) you’re all set. If you haven’t reached out to us before now to confirm you’re coming, our next chance for beginners to start will be Wed 12/6. If you show up tomorrow without having contacted us before the deadline, we may have to turn you away due lack of gym capacity. Asheville Catholic students will be given priority.
Our next beginner class starts Wed, September 6th.
Full info is available here: http://www.fencingclubasheville.com/beginner-classes/
Spots for the Sept 6th class will be limited because our gym is only so large. Please RSVP by emailing FencingClubAsheville@gmail.com with the name and age of the student enrolling, if you haven’t already done so.
Nobody who RSVPs will be turned away, but we may turn walk-ins away if we can’t safely squeeze them into the gym.
Hey, practice is BACK ON tonight. See everyone there! Also, this is a reminder that USA Fencing memberships are due for renewal. Get your membership renewed ASAP before we start checking at practice. Non-competitive ($10) at a minimum is required for all fencers at the club either at open fencing or beginner class.
Link to renew is here: https://member.usfencing.org/
Practice for today, 8/2, is cancelled due to issues at our location. We will resume as normal next wed.
Due to scheduling conflict at our location we have some changes for two weeks from now, May 31st:
Beginner class will NOT happen at 7pm. Open fencing will commence at 8:15pm. ALL beginners are invited to open fencing from 8:15-9:15 (or later) and private lessons will occur on request during open fencing.
If a beginner can’t make the 8:15 time, don’t sweat it, you won’t miss anything. We won’t cover new material. You’ll only get some extra practice time on the stuff from previous classes and some time to fence open bouts.
Our next Beginner class will start this week on Wed, May 3rd.
Our next beginner class will likely be the first Wed in September, unless a lot of folks ask us to run a July class.
