Finally, the fencing competition season ends this weekend. Club will be on and we send our best wishes to the SFA fencers competing at the National Open and Veterans Championships at the AIS in Canberra. Good luck to Jack, Courtney and Tanya. Fence well and enjoy. We also send our best wishes to the younger SFA fencers who are heading up to Canberra to join the Australian squad on their camp immediately after Nationals. Enjoy the experience, train hard and dream big.
