The Governor ended the stay at home order on Thursday. So Manchester will reopen on Monday, June 15, and Rochester on Tuesday, June 16. Both clubs will stay open until July 16.
New procedures will be implemented to follow the guidelines for fitness clubs to open, as required by the Governor. They will be emailed to current fencers & and students.
Those fencers who paid for Spring term will be able to fence during this session at no charge. Those who did not pay for Spring term, will owe $200 for this session.
We have enough fencers to be open on Mondays & Wednesdays in Manchester, and Tuesdays & Thursdays in Rochester. The club hours will be 6:30 to 9:00 (or later if people want more bouting). Sundays in Rochester will only be open for the beginning and intermediate students that were in the middle of their classes when we shut down.
