Great news!

1. Fencing practice will start this Friday. It will be between 4pm and 6pm on the 3rd floor basketball court of Helwell. See you there!

2. Some members of the fencing team, including our team president Taylor, will be at the Student Org fair tomorrow, August 27. Stop by to say hi and sign up if you're not on the team yet! If you're already part of the team, come keep Taylor company and recruit some new members!

3. Our most likely first tournament of the year, Chaos, is going to be at University of Maryland College Park on October 20th. Chaos is a tournament geared towards beginner fencers; however, it is also on Parents Weekend. Taylor encourages everyone to talk to your parents now (if they're coming) to try to work out your schedule to see if you can or cannot go to Chaos so that Taylor can know as soon as possible. The tournament is not mandatory or a "team" competition, so you will be competing individually if you choose to go. Taylor and hopefully the blade captains will be there.

Good luck on the first week of classes!
