The Upper Valley Fencing Club (www.UpperValleyFencingClub.com) provides ability-appropriate challenges for fencers with a broad range of experience. Communal improvement of form, technique and skills is the primary focus during the initial formal foil program of each session, followed by advanced practice, as well as “open fencing” in all three weapons in the latter part. Accommodation for several younger students may be possible - contact Paul or Ralph. All members, except for beginner/trial fencers, must provide their own equipment. Those who wish to fence "on the box" must have their own gear & electric weapons.   *All participants must also join the USFA ($10 non-competitive fee minimum).  Sign up at: http://www.usfencing.org/page/show/698115-individuals & then click to the latest registration page (via railstation.org).
