Home School Events in Wilmington
Same day, there will be individual and team events. I may pull someone from the individual events to participate in the team events as well if we need a person.
I will bring all the weapons, body cords, and lames. I think most people have their own uniforms. If you don’t, make sure you pull what you need this week and put it in my travel bag.
Women’s Tournament in Wilmington
Also the same day. Isabelle and Elinor and registered. Any of our women’s fencers are invited to participate. Make sure you have at least an Access Memebership from USA Fencing (which I think most of our fencers do). If you don’t have equipment, we’ll bring down equipment.
We are pleased to announce the return of our Advanced Camp. This is for current fencers, especially for those that have done competition. Many of our fencers that have done the Advanced Camp in the past have continued to earn ratings at competitions (of course, that’s not a guarantee. 🙂 ) The Advance Camp will be taught by Zoe Loh.
The Advanced Camp details
Date: June 3-5 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
Ages: Anyone currently in our program, ages 7-12, Teens.
However, we need a minimum of 10 fencers. If you are most likely going to participate in the camp, please fill out the online interest form. This is not the final registration form yet, so you don’t have to pay yet, we just need to make sure we have 10+ people that will be participating before we officially start registrations.
