Diane Swain has just rung to say that there will be no fencing at the United fencing Club.(Avonside Girls High School) on Tuesday night. Avonside Drive was one of the worst hit areas in Christchurch.
However, there will be some training, weather permitting, at the Olga Jeykll Salle (my place) starting 6.30pm for those dedicated enough to turn up! This will include electric fencing!!!
The Sabre Sessions will take place on Wednesday (and the Sabre Club meeting later!) at the venue and the Sabre Camp will also be taking place on the weekend.
Those turning up for the Sabre Camp are: Alex Chan, Mike Mercer, Sasha Green, Eoin Queen, Luke Robertson, Hannah Ramsay, Katherine Taylor, Katie Logan, Garth Shillito and Susan Fourie. Among the fencing fodder they will face will be two former national sabre champions, a top Pommie import and other sundry sabreurs all dedicated to helping our men and women sabreurs prepare for the Commonwealth Fencing Campionships in Melbourne.
