As the new Secretary of the Kent County Amateur Fencing Union, I have been asked to host and run the U16 and senior boys/girls Kent Championships on 16th January 2011 (the school's Secretary is abroad with the GB U17 squad for this event).
This is a 3 weapon competition and entrants must be over 14 years* and be full time in senior school, (*i.e. not be eligible to enter the U14 event in May).
Entry to the competition is through www.kentfencing.org.uk.
Young Official Piste Assistants Award
For Senior School ECfencers we are running the Young Official Piste Assistants Award during the competition which includes scoring, timekeeping, writing pool sheets and assisting the referees and competition organisers.
We won’t be able to accept non-ECfencers for this award but hopefully we will be able to in the future.
Cost for course is £5 (cheques only please payable to British Fencing).
Please contact Tim if you wish to enrol your son for the award.
Parents needed to help
ECfencing parents will be needed to help with setting up, providing hot and cold refreshments throughout the day and generally marshalling the event.
Please contact Tim if you can help on the day.
