Proposed New Welsh Patch

Over the last few days, we have been running a poll over the proposed design of a new patch.  It has generated a lot of comment, both through email and through social media in general. 

It's clear that we didn't get this right, so we have 'pulled' the poll and are proposing an alternative approach to ensure we get a broader input from the Membership, both in terms of design and in selection.

Our intention is to offer you all the opportunity to submit your thoughts over a proposed design, whether that is to retain the existing design, to use a traditional design, or to use a more modern style.  You are also invited to submit your own designs.  Please submit those designs and ideas to me by 21st December, 2017.

Clearly, there will be more designs than we can reasonably submit for public selection.  We therefore propose to establish an independent selection panel, who will be charged with reducing down all those ideas submitted to a more manageable number for public selection.  That selection panel needs to be representative of all members of Welsh Fencing. The Board will have the final decision over who is on that Selection Panel, but only to ensure it is fully representative.  The Selection Panel will have the final decision on the designs to be submitted to the Membership.  If you are interested in being involved in that selection panel, please let me know, again by 21st December.

Community Pages - FAQ

The Community Pages part of the website is designed to offer clubs the opportunity to advertise their activities more widely.  It can be used for competitions, training camps or pretty much anything.  The only proviso is that the Club must be affiliated to Welsh Fencing.

How do I get my article onto the Community Pages?

First of all, you will need to create the necessary article on your own website.  We do not host the article - we will only link to it.  That way you can easily  keep it up to date and add any further documents yourself.  To request that your article be published, you will need to send an email detailing the request to webmaster@welshfencing.org along with a  link to the article to be advertised.  We will also need to know when to take the link down.  Once we have received your request, we will review it and make a decision as to whether we will accept it or not.
