In-House Tournament & Secret Snowflake
At the end of each quarter, we have a tournament within the club. This quarter it will span the last 2 practices, the 2nd and 4th of December.
Around the holiday season, we will be having a Gift Exchange! The exchange will happen on the last day of practice, December 4th, after medals are awarded. If you would like to sign up, use this link and be sure to make a wishlist.
Sign up for the Secret Snowflake by Monday November 25 so we can start getting gifts!
Armory Session 11/15
We'll be having an armory session on Friday the 15th, from 5pm - 7pm at Davis Fencing Academy. Come help the club maintain and build equipment for future quarters to come.
Please fill out the link provided by Travel Secretary Patrick to determine your availability and ride needs: https://forms.gle/u961ccjv7ceAxoRc8
As always, there is a $5 fee if you can't attend either session this quarter.
Thanks and see you there,
CalPoly SLO has announced the date for their tournament (Saturday 11/09). Because of the large distance between Davis to SLO, we need to plan accordingly for an extended overnight stay.
Please answer the survey below so we can gauge the amount of people going to the tournament in order to plan for hotel rooms and car rides.
Especially since this is a 600mi round trip, we need all the drivers we can get. Please consider becoming an approved club driver if you can.
Travel Secretary, Co-Treasurer
Gear Washing Instructions
If you intend on washing your gear before a tournament, please remember to do a cold wash and rinse.
Do not use bleach.
Also please air dry your equipment. This means you can't wash the night before and have dry clothes in the morning.
Sadly, there is some paperwork we all have to fill out before we can start fencing. Here's a quick rundown of what you'll need to do for this year:
1. Fusion Waiver. Instead of B2H, this year we have Fusion. Go to the UCD Rec page, here, and scroll down till you find the "Sport Clubs" icon. You'll then be prompted to log in with your kerberos ID; from the list on the page that follows, find "Fencing" and follow the instructions. Through this process you will sign the waiver and pay the yearly insurance. It will only cost $20 for an entire year of insurance.
2. Health Information. Fill out your basic medical and emergency contact info on Presagia Sports, so we know who to contact in the event of an injury.
3. Pay the club dues if you haven't already. Cash to Kha Ton or Patrick Trieu works, and we also have a new Venmo account @UCDfencing.
If you made it through all that, then congrats, you're all done with pesky paperwork for now! Thanks and see y'all soon!
We are so excited to begin the 2019-2020 academic year! Can't wait to see y'all at the gym.
Our practices for Fall quarter are Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:00-9:30pm in Upper Hickey Gym. See "When & Where" tab for detailed directions.
Awesome! No experience is required. Just stop by for practice and we'll teach you the art of the blade!
Please wear athletic clothing and footwear. Long pants and closed toed shoes are required or else you can't practice.
The first three practices of the quarter are free. You've got nothing to lose...and everything to gain.
Decided? Be sure to check out the Incoming Fencers tab to find out how to officially join the club.
Not New Here?
Welcome back! Remember to sign up with Fusion and Presagia Sports insurance before the first practice (see post above) and pay your dues to our Treasurer, Kha Ton.
ALL FENCERS MUST COMPLETE THESE IN ORDER TO COMPETE.
Thanks guys, see you soon!!
