No fencing on 23 November!
A reminder to all fencers at GFC - the school will be shut on the 23rd, we will not be able to fence.
Local Surrey competition

Lost and Found
A junior size fencing glove was found at the club on 16th November.
Please contact me (Tim) if you want it back before the 30th November,
otherwise it will go into the club cupboard with the other gloves!
Club Foil Competition
The Club Foil Competition will be held this year on Friday 30th November
- All members and regular fencers at GFC aged 13 or over are invited to compete (whatever time they normally attend)
- To enter, please register on the day and pay the entry fee by
8:15PM if you want to enter. Late entries will be at the
organiser’s discretion and in general will be accepted only if they do
not delay the running of the competition
- The entry fee will be £3 for regular members, £2 for full time
education members, and £5 for casual members (plus the usual day fee)
- Electric equipment will be used. You may borrow club
equipment but it may have to be shared. (To permit the widest
entry, masks are not required to have an electric bib)
- The format will be decided when the number of entries is
known. In the past there has been a seeding round followed by a
- If the entry is large the competition may be completed the following week, 7th December.
The competition is an annual event, although it was not held last
year. I hope everyone who can fence foil will join in, but there
is no requirement to do so and normal fencing will continue alongside
the competition (although the competition will have priority on the use
of electric pistes).
To help me plan, please let me know if you expect to enter – email@example.com
