We will be holding our 2017 AGM on Wednesday 19 July. The agenda and appendices can be found here. As in previous years we will start as soon after 1930hrs as possible with food and refreshments available, and then fencing as normal as soon as the meeting has finished. Nominations to join the committee are welcome – either by email beforehand or indeed in person on the night. As a reminder, the list of all positions is as follows: Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Club Captain, Junior Rep / Welfare Officer (x2) and Ordinary Member (x4).
See below from Southern Fencing: URGENT CALL for Men Epeeists to join the Senior Winton Team, 8th/9th July in Nottingham..... At the moment we do not have a team and it would be a shame not to take a full 6 weapons to the event. Please email me if you are interested and available at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look forward to hearing from you.
