    Hi all,

    First time posting on here so sorry if there's already a similar thread. I'm based in Ireland and been fencing 10 or so years, and I have two younger brothers (13 and 16) who have been fencing a couple years over here, and will be over in the Bay area this summer.

    I've trained over there in the past for a couple weeks and I know the fencing "scene" is relatively robust over there so they'd be able to get some fencing in at a club- I'm just wondering if there are m(any) decent camps in the area for intermediate fencers that they could go to while they're over there. They train and compete locally over here, get ROW/distance/timing/etc, but they're also not getting 3x weekly lessons/doing FIE Cadet competitions etc.

    Anything suitable out there? They're both foil btw.

    My secret identity revealed!

    I can't give you the secrets of high-stakes poker, but I can give you an insight into my mind.

    The Bay Cup routinely posts local club summer camp offerings, but usually not until May-ish time period.

    http://thebaycup.net/

    We also have a list of all Bay Area clubs here:

    If you have any questions about specific clubs, or would like a more detailed answer to which clubs have which weapons, please email The Bay Cup at [email protected] and I would be more than happy to give you some more information and contacts for different local clubs.

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    Likely part of testing a spambot under development. Or testing the controls on the forum for a similar purpose.
