Hi to All…Happy March…Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
We are resuming mini saber and epee fencing tournaments at the club!
Our Saturday, February 27, 2021, 7-fencer mini saber tournament was a BIG hit! (Pun intended)! Making their competitive saber debut were Alex Allen and Chloe Sontz.
We even had parents come and watch the action: Chloe’s mom watched as did Alex’s mom and dad and Josiah’s mom and dad. Glad to have the parents with us!
Our next mini tournament will be Saturday, March 6, a 6-fencer mini epee tournament.
All these mini tournaments are sanctioned by the USFA, which means ratings will be awarded, as well as medals for 1st-4th place. It’s a great way for our DFA fencers to actually get their feet wet in competing in their respective weapon without the stress of participating in a large tournament setting.
Our goal is to continue hosting these mini tournaments at the club up until the end of the fencing season in July. Also planned are 3-fencer team events on Saturdays.
Everyone, please continue what you are already doing…wearing masks, bringing a water bottle, keeping distance. It all works for everyone.
Wishing everyone a blissful March and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
– Leslie, the fencing coach
