75 Year Anniversary

2022 will be the 75 year anniversary for Welsh Fencing.  We propose to bring together a working group to define how best to celebrate this, and to plan any activities.  If you are interested in being part of this group, plase email Fran (fran.whalley@fencing.cymru).  It would also help it you could include any specific skills you have that you think would benefit the project.

Cadet Winton 2021

by Mark Ridsdale

Following the cancellation of last year’s event, we are pleased to see that the Cadet Winton team competition will be running again in 2021. The format has changed to one weapon per day to avoid overnight stays as part of the COVID mitigation measures. For this year only, there is also the opportunity for U18’s (born 2003) to take part as they will have missed out last year.

Domain Name Change

by Mark Ridsdale

Over the next few weeks, we will be moving to a new domain - fencing.cymru - so to get to our website, you should use this new domain name:  https://fencing.cymru

For the last few years, we have hosted our website on a shared hosting provider.  We have not been satisfied with the performance, as we are impacted by the other websites sharing the same server.  As we approach the end of that contract, we have established a new domain, and have moved to use AWS Lightsail.  This gives us our own Virtual Private Server, which we have more control over, and which we expect to perform much better.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Colin Hyndman, who passed away in his sleep.

He made a massive impact on Fencing in Wales, and was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award just over a year ago.
