November Practice Schedule

Reminder! We will not have practice on November 24 and 26 because of Thanksgiving break, instead we should all be eating tons of food, doing some black Friday shopping, recovering from food comas and from getting trampled on by people fighting for their plasma TV’s.

Summer Fencing Demos!

This past summer the University of Minnesota did demonstrations at the Minnesota State Fair!  It was a lot of fun interacting with adults and kids to teach them about all about fencing!  Thanks to Devon Lee, Sadie Betting, Casey Butorac, Ali Ruminsky, Edward Snoiteh Neepaye, and Joe Parkhill for helping out, and fencing when it was almost 90 degrees out!  Here are some pictures from the demo!
