Chaos Changes, Gear, and Bake Sale

Men's and Women's epee and sabre - car
Women's foil - metro with joel, with a car ride outside the UMCP metro station

No need to worry - everyone still gets breakfast! If you need to leave early, email Rebecca. If not, everyone should stay to help breakdown and transport equipment.

If you need to get equipment, you must get it tomorrow (Saturday) since HellWell is closed on Sunday. You are responsible for your whites, socks, and mask.

If Rebecca is getting your equipment for you, you must come get it from her BEFORE Sunday morning because it's too heavy for her carry alone.

We always need more volunteers! Whether you want to work at the bake sale or bake something (or make someone bake for you), anything would be appreciated. If you'd like to volunteer, email Joel. Those who are volunteering (thanks, guys!), please meet at 10:15 am outside the Foggy Bottom metro to go with Joel.

Chaos and Bale Sale

Chaos is this Sunday! If you're going, meet outside of Hellwell at 7 am. The team leaves at 7:15 sharp. Don't forget to bring your white (jacket, underarm guard, knickers, socks, shoes) and mask. If you paid dues and don't have socks, email Rebecca to let her know.

Ready for another successful bake sale? The next one will be this Saturday, from 11 am to 2 pm. We still need people to run the table, help set up, and bake some food. Email Joel! For his email address, check Rebecca's recent email.

Obama + Lightsaber + Fencing

Need more encouragement to love fencing? Just look at these pictures! In an effort to get support for the 2016 Summer Olympics bid for Chicago, USA, Obama had Olympic silver medalist Tim Morehouse do a fencing demonstration on the White House lawn in 2009. Check out the awesome pictures - Obama directing a bout, then fencing with a lightsaber!

Want some new gear? Now's the time to order it!

We will do another gear order by October 14th. If you want to order something, get your money and order in full by 2 pm on October 14th (though the sooner, the better). Email or text Rebecca to set up a time to give her the record. Thanks!
