The SCFC has t-shirts on order, they come in black & green or pink & red.  Order yours now, they'll be arriving soon!

The demo in the Great Hall of the Main Library on Aug 5 went very well, we handed out a lot of catalogs and talked to quite a few people.  We were even briefly featured on the local FOX news broadcast that night!  Pictures can be seen on on the SCFC Facebook profile.

Classes starting soon, sign up at www.neighborhood-connection.org.  First tournament of the 2010-11 season will be on 9/11 at St. Henry's Catholic Church!

Attention USA International Foil Fencers

  • The FIE has approved making the bib target in foil.
  • The proposed timetable is that the FIE will require the conductive bib in Senior competitions starting January 2009 and for Juniors starting the following season in September 2009.
  • As of yet there are no models or prototypes available. A retrofit overlay system on existing masks is being accepted.
  • Be prepared to have a saber-like mask connecting cord to run from the new conductive mask bib to the lame and to get your mask retrofitted if you intend to compete in FIE competitions.
  • The implementation date of this change for USFA has not yet been determined. The USFA will wait and see how this develops before implementing it here for our domestic events.

Other major countries such as France, Germany, Italy, Britain and Spain have various timetables for their domestic implementation. To the best of our knowledge the following is the schedule of implementation for the following countries:

  • Great Britain - Seniors in January 2009, Juniors in September 2009),
  • Germany - Jan. 1, 2009 for seniors, post-Belfast for Junior/Cadets).
  • Italy - Jan. 1, 2009 for seniors, post-Belfast for Junior/Cadets)
  • France - September 2009 for all events
  • Spain - Yet to decide.

Been a while since I have checked out the Fort Wayne Fencing blog.  Looks pretty awesome and informative, like the pics and vids cool!  Hope all is well with the SCFC.  Was just an idea but has anybody though about doing a demo down in front of the Allen County Public Library? Could be cool.  Anyway best wishes and hope to see you all on the strip soon.  -MacLeod

The SCFC was recently forced to move out of its location on Clubview Dr., so we have relocated to Zion Lutheran Academy for the time being.  Starting tomorrow (July 8), all club practices and classes will be held at ZLA until further notice.  We will be meeting Monday-Wednesday, at our usual times of 6-7 for classes and 7-9 for regular club practices.

Zion Lutheran Academy
2313 Hanna St., Ft. Wayne, IN 46803

We will need to keep the door to the building locked, so punctuality has become critical.  Members are asked to arrive promptly between 6:50 and 6:59 PM (or between 5:50 and 5:59 PM before a class session).  If you arrive late, please ring the doorbell.  A Floor Leader or building staff member will let you in as soon as possible.  In this case, you may have to wait outside several minutes.  Please note that locker rooms are available for changing and showering, plenty of seating is available if parents would like to remain in the building while their kids fence.  Check the official website regularly for updates and any changes!

It's true!  Mariel, the gold medal sabreist from 2004, recently did a segment on the Today show.

Also, Brian Williams did a segment on kids wheelchair fencing back in February.  It's nice to see the word getting out on the sport!

Elaine from Ohio Northern University fencing foil against Roman at the SCFC Spring Fling Open on 04/19/08.
