    Avast or...something. :D
    Hi. My name is Hoot and I'm addicted to fencing. I've been clean for the past few months due to travel outside of the country and need to get back to training.

    Nitty gritty, since I know it will be asked:
    I'm a righty.
    I've only learned sabre, and a tiny, tiny bit of foil...meaning I could probably pick out the weapon in a line up. Maybe.
    I've only been at it for a year, because I took a class at college one semester and then some splendid person (*cough*bmcfencer*cough*) started a club.

    So. Yes. I have no weaponary, or equipment, only a vague sense of how to train myself in such a state. But then again, our club only has equipment that we managed to sneak out of the museum...er...gym! :rolleyes:
    Since there's an entire section devoted to training, maybe I could hijack this thread momentarily to ask... does anyone have any tips on how to -fundraise- for a fencing club? How to get fresh faces for a club and how to keep them? Or what sort of goals we need to set for ourselves to become a collegiate varsity team?

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum! We'll even forgive you for being a sabre fencer. (psst - the foil's the wimpy little one that "clicks" when it hits another blade...)

    As for fundraising, don't even *think* about selling witty and suggestive t-shirts with fencing themes. Your sisters at Smith have the market cornered there, and you wouldn't want to incur the wrath of MP.
