Annual General Meeting

Unless we have a new problem with Covid restrictions, the Annual General Meeting of the club will be held at the club on the 23 July, and all members eligible to vote are invited to attend. To allow for votes from both sessions to attend, it will be held at 8PM, after the first session and before the second. Recent experience is that we can continue with normal fencing about half an hour later.

The meeting will be held outdoors if the weather permits. Please consider bringing a face-covering in case it's needed for moving about while indoors.

The business of the AGM includes the election of the new committee, who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the club. Paid-up members over 14 vote in person; a parent of each member under 14 may also attend and vote. Other people may attend and speak, at the discretion of the chair of the meeting, but they are not entitled to vote. This year, the committee consider that someone is a "paid-up member" if either:
  • they have fenced at the club at least once in 2021 and have paid the fees due for the sessions they attended - this includes juniors and beginners; or
  • they were paid-up on an annual or termly basis when the club was suspended in March 2020.
Although we have only been able to fence for 8 weeks, I am very grateful that we have been able to fence at all. Please do attend the AGM, to contribute to the quorum and to show your support.

Please also consider standing as a committee member, to help run the club next year - it is not hard work and the club cannot run without it!

Booking now open

Booking sheets are available here for next Friday, 23 July, which will be the last night of fencing this term. 

Under the rules for "organised sport" we are able to fence indoors, with pretty much the traditional format. Guidelines for reducing Covid risk are set out in this page: covid.php. These include a couple of things to do in advance:

  1. British Fencing has ruled that everyone needs to be a member in order to count as "organised sport": the introductory membership is free for 90 days. You can get details at https://www.britishfencing.com/.  Note that fencers at Guildford will normally be in the South-East region.

  2. You need to book for each session, as there is a limit on capacity and also so we can notify you if we have to cancel. You need 48 hours to set up an account the first time, then it's easy - see covid.php.
