Hi…and happy May and Mother’s Day! Here is information for the month of May.
DFA will be closed May 9-11, Friday-Sunday. We will be in Pasadena for the Pacific Coast Championships. If you are interested in fencing in PCC’s, go to the Pacific Coast Section website and click on tournament registration which will take you to AskFred. The deadline for registration is May 2. After that, the registration fee is double and triple at the door.
DFA will be closed Saturday, May 17, for our end-of-season tournament and awards ceremony. Please visit the San Bernardino Division website, www.usfasb.org, to view the Division Points Winners.
Congratulations to Max Barber who earned his C08 rating in epee at the April 19 tournament at Harvey Mudd College.
We have lots of fencing going on:
- Monday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., electric sabre fencing
- Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., electric epee fencing
- Friday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. open electric fencing
- Saturdays from noon to 2:00 p.m. electric epee fencing
On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., if fencers want to come in to do footwork, drills or spar, please feel welcome to come on in and workout on those days which may not be your regular lesson day. It’s your club and everyone is most welcome to come in and practice footwork, etc., or make a “date” with another fencer to come in and get in some extra sparring practice. Wednesday is turning into a good day for our junior sabre fencers to come and get in some extra sparring practice.
We will be going into our summer schedule starting Monday, June 16 and will close for our summer vacation on Monday, July 28. DFA will re-open on Tuesday, September 2.
Our summer schedule will be posted to our website on May 1.
Wishing everyone a merry month of May and blissful fencing.
