I can announce that Peter Stewart has tendered his resignation from the Executive Board, with immediate effect.
I would like to thank him for his many years of unstinting hard work on behalf of Fencing in Wales. A fuller report of his many contributions over the years will follow shortly.
Happy New Year!
As usual, we are about to start our scheduled series of Youth Events, with foil scheduled for Sunday 15th Jan, and sabre and epee scheduled for Sunday 29th Jan. We are looking for volunteer referees to support these events. Its not a huge commitment, but makes a massive impact into the running of these events. Please let me know if you, or anyone at your club, are able to come along and referee.
Please share this with your fencing friends and club colleagues. The more refs we have, the better!!
The Welsh Youth Sabre has been re-scheduled, and will now take place on the afternoon of Sunday, 29th January. This is to accommodate the clash with the Stratford Sabre LPJS.
The Welsh Youth Epee will still take place on the morning of the 29th January, with check-in scheduled between 9:00 and 9:30 am. The Youth Sabre event will follow, with check-in scheduled for 1:00 to 1:30pm.
