Manchester will be closed on Monday, May 31 for Memorial Day. It is a meaningful day for me. This is one of the few federal holidays for which I close the club. So stay home, enjoy the day, and please take the time to think about the sacrifices that your fellow Americans have made to protect and defend our country’s democracy, and the lives of its citizens.
Summer is upon us, and the fencing doesn’t stop! Except in July, because we are closed that entire month (I will be at the Summer National Championship the first two weeks of July, and I will need a break afterwards. But we have fencing in June and August!
Below are the dues for summer fencing. You can sign up for one month- June or August. Or you can sign up for both months at a $55 to $65 discount. If you know that you will miss some days, I will prorate the dues for a one month membership (sorry, not for the two month membership).
I usually run a combined Children and Youth Training during the summer, as the numbers usually drop, and we need a minimum number of participants to make group training fun and effective. However, if we get enough fencers to run separate programs, I will provide them.
I will be asking the fencers what their summer plans are, so parents, please discuss this with your children, and let me know what you decide to do. If you prefer to email me, that will be fine.
The club will continue to be open on the same days as now : Manchester on Mondays and Wednesdays, Rochester on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Membership includes fencing in both clubs if you like, at no extra charge.
Summer Term Dues
Children and Youth- $205 for one month, $355 for both months. 6:00 to 7:00 for a separate Children’s Training, 6:30 to 7:45 for Youth Training (and combined)
Juniors and Adults- $215 for one month, $365 for both months. 7:00 to 9:00, but you can come in early and stay as late as 9:30.
I hope to see you this summer, but if not, see you in September.
