CFFA update for June 11

I will be sending out a second note to everyone about next season’s NAC, so you can skip that one if you are not interested.  Plus I will be sending out notes to the Camp Lejeune people, camp attendees, and possible NCFL fencers.
We are looking at redoing the floor this summer.  To have it ready for camps we will probably use the week of July 4th.  Volunteers who want to paint or help with lacquering once painted are welcome.  We may try to do about 1/2 at a time so we can keep fencing.  Hopefully we will not have a cloudburst before the lacquer and paint are set this time.
Tuesday,
June 13 will start a 6:30 pm Tuesday/Thursday practice for those who
are too young to want to be practicing against adults.  I’ll try to hold
it as more of a team type practice so people know how that works.  Cost
is $5 per child per practice or $25 per month for unlimited attendance
per child.  There will be a Saturday practice at 10 am for those wanting that last minute practice before Sunday’s Powerade events.

The
Powerade State Games are June 17-18 this year in the Winston Salem
area.  Men’s, Women’s, and Y-12 events in all weapons.  Registration is over and there is no on-site
registration this year, so that is important.  Also, since askfred is
not official, events are usually a little bigger than what is listed on
askfred.  Anyone who is not on askfred, but is entered please let me
know.  Right now I only have two fencers in the earliest event on Saturday. 
That is a bit hard for me to get to after the Friday night Camp Lejeune
practice, so I will go up Sunday.

For
our Saturday practice on June 24th, the Salle New Bern people are
planning to come down.  It would be nice if we had a crowd for them to
fence.  Some of them have also been coming down on Thursdays, so there are plenty of people to fence that night (primarily epeeists.)

Getting
closer to the camps, so please let me know if you are coming (if you
haven’t already).  It helps me to plan for numbers and also to tailor
the camp to the level of those who will be attending.  Additionally I am getting ready to order camp T-shirts, so sizes would be helpful.  Dates are:

Beginning Camp   July 17-21
Advanced foil      July 24-28
Advanced Epee   July 31 – August 4
Advanced Sabre  August 7-11

Cost
for the camps are $195, plus the $10 non-competitive USA Fencing
membership.  The fencing year ends on July 31, so you will need to renew
if your camp meets any days in August.

pax vobiscum,
