We are very pleased to be able to announce that keeping within Government and Scottish Fencing Guidelines, EFC are working towards reopening for our U18 Annual Members on 24th and 25th of November. Full details of the U18 sessions we will be offering, and how to reserve a place, will be sent via email once we finalise our plans and receive risk assessment approval from Scottish Fencing.
We are limited to only opening on Tuesday and Wednesday nights to begin with. Don McKenzie and Naomi Farmer will return to run our Wednesday Cadet Foil and Sabre Classes, all session start and end times will need to be adjusted to allow for cleaning and set-up/take-down, there will be restrictions on numbers to allow for social distancing, and fencers will need to book their place in advance. Although our Kit policy is that owning at least Basic Kit (Glove, Breeches and Mask) is now compulsory, we appreciate that current circumstances may make this prohibitive for some of our young fencers to return to the club. Therefore we are introducing a new Club Kit Deposit Scheme, where certain items can be borrowed for a set period, by paying a refundable deposit. It is still mandatory for everyone to own their own glove, and we will advise on the best option for you.
Our Armourer Martin can take orders for free delivery to the club, and 10% discount on Allstar and Uhlmann branded items (other suppliers and brands are available).
So, watch out club members, for email updates!
