Alpharetta is organising a team tournament on 5 January for those who will be in town. This is a great chance to try out the team match format. Fencers who are interested need to form teams before school closes for the winter break. Please go to the Fun Team Tournament page in the calendar section for more details.
The team t-shirts are now available. Each Pope fencer (new or experienced) gets a free t-shirt this year. Most fencers have been given a t-shirt, those who have not should see Ms. Leuck (Katey C’s mom) at practice. Additional t-shirts for fencers, family or friends can be purchased for $10 each.
The official team t-shirt for this season is the original Pope Fencing design on a dark blue background that says Pope Fencing with a greyhound over crossed swords. They look like this:
We also have some white t-shirts from two years ago that are available for purchase ($10 while stocks last) if anyone wants one as an an extra shirt. They look like this:
To order a t-shirt (other than the free ones that the fencers get). please e-mail statsman (or reply to one of his many e-mails to you) and say how many you want, of which design, and what size (choose from adult S, M, L, XL).
This is an introductory special for fencers who might be interested in joining a private club. For a total of $20, fencers can attend next week’s (Thanksgiving week) Monday and Friday practice at Dunwoody Fencing Club (DFC) from 7 PM to 9 PM. The offer is open to all Pope fencers (or other GHSFL fencers) who are not currently members of a private club.
DFC is the private club where Coach Eichler is a coach. Despite the name, it is located in Roswell, there new facility is at 735 West Crossville Road (behind Wallgreens).
