Learn to fence

Hi everyone,

our first learn to fence course has just been completed. It was a great success and everyone had a great time.

Just reminder that the next course kicks off this Friday at 7pm. If you’d like to reserve a place, please head into the sports centre at MQ uni and speak to reception.

The cost of the course is only for $55 for MQ uni students and $85 for everyone else.

An annual novice membership of only $20 will be offered at the conclusion of the course.

This is a great way to get involved in a new sport. Fencing is great fun, just hard to get into without the right avenue. This is a great opportunity for you to get the experience.

Merry Christmas

Fencing@MQ hosted its annual foil comp last Friday. As always there was a big turn out. Everyone had a fun time. Many thanks to Bill, without his help the comp would not have been nearly as successful.

Congratulations to Steve, our learn to fence course coach, who won the foil comp. He came out of retirement to compete in the comp.

Congratulations to Derrick, our Silver medalist. Well done to Robbie who finished equal third. Congratulations to Katherine, who was equal third overall and winner out of the women.

The club wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

See you Jan 11 for another year of fun at fencing@MQ.

Last Night

This is our final night of training for the year!

We hope you have had a great 2012, and have achieved all that you set out to achieve this year.

We look forward to seeing you at training in the new year!

Don’t forget that tonight we are holding our annual foil competition. Please arrive no later than 7pm. The comp will not be completed otherwise. Pizza will be on hand at the conclusion of the night out the front of sports centre.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Last Night

Hi everyone,
I must apologise for last nights debacle.
For those of you who went to macquarie uni expecting to fence, you will have be sourly disappointed. The centre was closed for a private function.
I was NOT told about this closure, even after double checking the centre would be available for the remainder of the year!
I have not yet spoken to management about this. I will be speaking to them on Monday.
Fencing@MQ will have its final training night next Friday 21 Dec. We will be wrapping up the year with a foil comp and pizza night.
I look forward to seeing you all there for the final night.
Once again, I am sorry for last nights debacle.

End of Year

Just a quick reminder that the last training night of the year will be Friday 21 December.

For the last night of the year we will running a foil comp. This is open for everyone to take part in. There will be pizza provided at the end of the night.

We will be resuming training on Friday 11 January.

Look forward to seeing you there.
