Season Restart and new Venues / Times

As you have been aware, our venue at Gilbertson Park Hall is out of action due to COVID, and this will continue into next year.
Now the schools are back, existing block bookings for the Sandveien Hall will start and we have found no options for us in town for Wednesday nights.
To remain in town, we need to change our day to Tuesday nights. This will just be for the time we don’t have Gilbertson Park hall.
The venue in town will be Islesburgh Centre in the downstairs Hall. 
I’m well aware of, and am sorry for, the clashes that may bring with some who have other activities on different days. Please get in touch with me if you have a problem with Tuesdays.
Please keep checking our fencing calendar for dates and times at the bottom of our home page.
 
Good news is that during lockdown, kit has been upgraded and we have a lot of new training aids, although it will always still be a struggle to keep enough fencers kitted out with club gear. - see below.
 
Membership of the Club
We have had a good summer with a lot of Summer Camps for beginners and a limited number of our fencers training through the summer.
For a full restart to fencing, it is now time to do a complete reset of our membership. Can I ask everyone to let me know as soon as possible:
 
1. If they are coming back to fencing, if they have not already been back during the summer.
2. For those who haven’t’ got an active standing order for membership to set up a Standing Order to the club or £15 per month. (see email out to members or contact us). Please use fencer name as reference. This is due to start in September. New fencers just starting just need to a one off payment of £15 for now. Again see emails for bank details.
 
3.  If you are not coming back or at least straight away, it is really important you let us know what your plans are and we get your kit back  We have a high demand for places to start at the club and this is being held back by the amount of kit still out to past fencers.  Kit can be returned to Islesburgh Community Centre Main desk anytime. Please leave your name with the kit.  
 
I look forward to seeing you all back after the School holidays and please get in touch if I can help in any way.
