DFA May 2021 News

Hi to All…Happy May…Happy Mother’s Day!!!

We hosted a mini epee tournament on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at the club with 6 fencers.
These tournaments are always fun to host and gives our fencers, especially new fencers to the sport, the opportunity to participate in a tournament on a small scale, at the club, and with their sparring partners.

Making his tournament fencing debut was 13 year old Preston Ellis, who took 3rd place! Below is the photo.

Memorial Day is Monday, May 31. I know it is a 3-day weekend. I will check with all the Monday fencers to see if they will be away for that holiday, the club may be closed on that day.

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9. Chocolate, flowers, brunch, a nice card may all be excellent gifts and surprises to present to your mom.

Wishing everyone a marvelous May, a wonderful Mother’s Day and, as always, blissful fencing.

Leslie, the fencing coach
