March Monthly Update
I hope everyone has been keeping well and active during the lockdown. We are back to fencing this week with the normal level two procedures – Social distancing, no hand shaking, signing in on QR codes and using hand sanitizer on entry and exit. Lastly do not come to training if you are sick or awaiting results of a covid test.
Competitions – We had a busy month in February with competitions the Bubble Ensemble and W Dawn kicking off for the year. Congratulations and great work to everyone that competed and put their hard work to the test.
I have attached to this email a competition calendar for the year. It is advised that you plan ahead and let me know which competitions you’ll be committing to and confirm this with your parents. This will allow us to work together to get you in the best condition to get the desired results.
