Congratulations UCI Fencers on a great collegiate season!
Greetings Fencers and Fencers-to-be! I’m Laelia Nguyen, one of your presidents for the 2017-2018 school year. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re looking to throw down on the strip with a sword in hand, in which case you’re in the right place! We welcome people of all levels, beginners and experienced fencers alike. We have undergraduates, graduates, and faculty in our ranks. We offer epee, foil, and sabre at our club, as well as many opportunities to compete, learn from coaches, and hang out at social events!
There are many ways to get in contact with us. You can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also join our Facebook page and be up-to-date on competitions and practices. We’ll be at the Anteater Involvement Fair on Monday, September 25 from 11-4pm in Aldrich Park where you can meet our officers and ask them questions about the club and fencing in general. You can also find us at Late Night at the ARC doing demos from 9:45-10:05pm in the Main Gym (the basketball courts) and also at 10:30-11:25pm in the Training Zone (a room on the second floor) if you’d like to see us in action.
Our practices begin Week 1, October 4 at 8:30 pm in the Activity Annex, and continue every week of the quarter on Wednesdays from 8:30 pm -11 pm and Fridays from 7 pm – 11 pm. All you need to bring are clothes and shoes that you’re comfortable working out in. We’ll provide everything else. Club dues are $50 per quarter and are to be paid by the start of Week 4.
See you soon!
In preparation for the new year, the officers have ratified an amendment to the club constitution removing the office of the vice presidency and replacing the presidency with two overlapping co-presidencies, one whose term begins in June and one whose term begins in March. Laelia Nguyen, elected president for this year, stays on as the June-term president, while Benjamin Leider, elected vice president for this year, stays on as the March-term president (outgoing March 2018).
