The year will begin with our 1st Practice being held on August 9th from 3:40 pm - 6:00 pm in the Cafeteria. We will meet every Wednesday thereafter until January 31, 2017. Here is a link for the 2017-2018 Fencing Calendar: http://www.lambertfencing.com/calendar
Tournaments begin on September 9, 2017 and will be mandatory for all members. The 2017-2018 Tournament Season will have 7 tournaments which will run from Sept 2017 - Jan 2018. The regular season will end with an Individual Championship Tournament & a Team Championship Tournament. Both of these tournaments are by invitation only, the selected fencers will be determined based on the number of points earned throughout the tournament season. On February 15, 2017 we will represent the Lambert Fencing Team at the annual GHFSL Day at the Georgia Capitol, it's a great opportunity to meet your Local & State Representatives and participate in a leadership role. Everyone is encouraged to attend and because it is an educational event it will be an excused absence from school!
For all Returning Fencers: Plan to bring your equipment & uniforms in the morning on August 9th. You can use the cafeteria closet (same as last year) for storage. If the door is locked go to Ms. Bain's office to get the key. Also, make sure you all have your "Physicals" on file at the school and bring all of the required paperwork completed. Here is the link for the list of forms you will need: http://www.lambertfencing.com/registration
Also, you will need to bring in your payment for Club Dues (please make your checks out to Lambert Fencing Club & make sure your name is on the Memo Line). The Club Dues are $400 which is the same as last year. You can either choose to pay in full or two equal payments of $200. If you are paying in two installments your first payment is due at the first practice and the second will be due on November 8, 2017.
New fencers: August 9th will be your chance to experience a free fencing class and if you are interested in joining we will measure you for uniforms and discuss what else you will need to join after practice. If you already know that you will be joining the team, please make sure to have your "Physicals" on file at the school and bring in all of your completed registration forms.
