All,

 

As usual, December is a mess with tournaments and the holidays.  I apologize in advance and we will find makeup opportunities for you (see below).

 

Please note the following on your calendars:

 

THERE IS A MAKEUP EPEE CLASS SUN – 12/12 11-1230 FOR THE MISSED FRI EPEE CLASS – ALL EPEE I/II FENCERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND

ALL FRI AND SAT CLASSES,

BOUTING, AND LESSONS ARE CANCELED NEXT WEEK (12/17 AND 12/18) DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF FENCERS AND COACHES GOING TO THE SOUTHERN RYC IN MYRTLE BEACH NEXT WEEKEND

ALL FRI AND SAT CLASSES, BOUTING, AND LESSONS ARE CANCELED 12/24 AND 12/25 FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

ALL FRI AND SAT CLASSES, BOUTING, AND LESSONS ARE CANCELED 12/31 AND 1/1 FOR THE NEW YEARS HOLIDAY

 

ASIDE FROM THESE DATES, ALL MON-THURS CLASSES WILL BE HELD AS NORMAL.

 

This really stinks for fencers only attending on Fri and Sat.  You are invited and encouraged to attend any other classes Mon-Thurs this month.  The coaches will also be speaking with all of you this week about suitable makeup dates during the holiday break.  Let them know what would be convenient for you as a group.

 

As of January, we anticipate no further schedule changes!  The best way to avoid missing classes due to tournaments is to go to the tournaments!

 

Best,

 

Chris
