The parent meeting will be next Wednesday (3 September) at 6 PM in the cafeteria. We need at least one parent of each fencer to be at the meeting, and would prefer both parents were there (especially parents of new fencers).
Fencers are welcome to stay and the armorers will be giving an epee maintenance clinic for them during the meeting. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided for fencers and parents at 6 PM and we will start the meeting once everyone has something to eat.
We will have an packet for each family containing:
- Contact information that we would like you to verify.
- Copies of any forms we have not yet received from you.
- Information about the coming season and an equipment list.
Please pick up your packet when you arrive and complete and return the forms before you leave.
For returning fencers and new fencers who have been practicing with us since the start of the year, the club dues should be paid at the meeting (if you haven’t already paid). New fencers who joined us after the start of the year can wait until they have been to a few practices before deciding to join.
We have a t-shirt and pair socks for each fencer who has paid the dues and we have a uniform patch and epee sheath for each new fencer who has paid. Fencers who haven’t picked them up yet can do so at the meeting. You can also buy additional t-shirts, socks, patches and sheaths as well as car magnets and yard signs (“Home of a Pope Fencer”). An price list has been e-mailed to fencers and parents so you can decide if you want to buy anything.
