Cavs noticeboard: summer fencing‏ Jan 2015

Just wanted to confirm the details for the summer fencing sessions - Mal Davies is running sessions from 6.30pm to 9.30pm on Wednesday evenings in Januarybefore we start up the regular Cavs sessions again (ie, on 7, 14, 21 and 28 January 2015).

So there is no need to go through fencing withdrawal as you wait for the 31st of January, you can come and join us in the new year.  The sessions are pay as you go, and the amount will depend on numbers (but should not be more than $10 a session).

Please let either Mal malcolm.davies@westnet.com.au or of the Jinny secretary@cavaliers.com.au know if you are interested

Remember that Dylan's fitness training is also starting up on 29 December!  

Hope to see some of you over summer, otherwise Cavs is back to normal from Saturday, 31 January 2015.  

Whatever your spiritual (or secular) persuasion, I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas / Hannukah / Solstice / Zarathosht Diso /  December Eat-A-Thon / New Year festive season! 

Kind regards,
 ECU Cavalier School of Fencing

Notices and Holiday Activities

We have now finished fencing for the year :( 

We will be starting training again in the new year from Saturday, 31 January 2015.

Well done to the Cavs who went to Canberra recently for nationals - Damian Kneale won the bronze medal for veteran mens sabre, Ivy Park not only fenced the open individual comp for women's foil but helped the WA women's sabre team out as well, and Marissa Black, Dylan Devenish, Chris Barrett-Lennard and Jinny Skerman also competed.

There are a few things going on during the break:

Dylan's fitness training

Dylan is running fitness training again twice a week during the break, starting on 29 December 2014 at 6pm, probably at Scarborough Beach. 

We have been told that the training level has been set to "level: insanity" but also we tend to go out for burgers afterwards, so please come along!

Please email Dylan directly to express interest and to get more details: magna_blast@hotmail.com

Summer fencing sessions

Mal is planning to run summer fencing sessions again at Cavs in the new year but we are still clarifying the dates and times.  These are usually one evening a week, and pay as you go (usually around $10 a session to cover venue hire). 

We will let you know the details in due course, but in the meantime, please email the secretary secretary@cavaliers.com.au if you are interested so we can work out numbers.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Notice of AGM 15th November 2014

Dear all,
This is an important notice that the Cavaliers AGM will be held from 3.30pm on Saturday, 15 November 2014, at the Sports Centre at ECU after training that afternoon.  
I have attached the following:

All are encouraged to attend and even better, to run for a position on the 2015 Committee! Cavs runs on volunteers, and we are always on the lookout for people keen to contribute so that we can keep the club fabulous.  All of us who are presently on the committee are more than happy to chat to you before the AGM about the different positions (and what is involved).  The committee meets about 4 or 5 times a year, and we have fun, we even sometimes have cupcakes :D
We are hoping to run a BBQ at ECU following the AGM as well, details TBA.

Anyway, see you all at training and at the AGM!

Kind regards,
Jinny Skerman
Secretary, ECU Cavalier School of Fencing
