    As you may be aware, the South Australian Roadmap for Easing Covid-19 Restrictions has a nominated date of June 1st for Step 2; this is the step which allows for the return to indoor sport and fitness. Remember: this date is subject to change depending on public health assessment.


    All of us are keen to return to fencing, and FencingSA have been working hard to finalise their Return to Fencing Plan on behalf of the clubs, but we of the AHFC have an additional issue to deal with. Our beloved gym at Bridgewater will be unavailable to us due to renovations until the middle of term 3, possibly later.

    Your elected board are working tirelessly to find some temporary lodgings for the club during this period, and we will send notification once something has been finalised. If anyone has a definite lead on a viable space, please send an email to secretary@adelaidehillsfencing.club.

    The AHFC understands that this is a distressing turn of events (cue wailing, gnashing of teeth!) and will be organising future discount vouchers for the lost training period we have experienced. Anyone who has been profoundly affected by the lockdown and requires a refund for their annual payment may apply in writing to treasury@adelaidehillsfencing.club. This will be handled confidentially on a case-by-case basis.

    Until we reconvene, private tuition can be organised by contacting coach@adelaidehillsfencing.club. Note: This coaching is facilitated by the AHFC on behalf of its coaches, and as such is a private financial agreement with the coach. 

    Until further notice,
    Kep calm and practice en garde.

    Dear AHFC members,

    In response to the Covid-19 crisis and in the interest of public health and safety, the Board has decided to suspend all group training and fencing at the club effective today

    This includes privately arranged 1-on-1 lessons.

    We will review the situation at the end of the normal school holidays in line with expert advice,  and can hopefully get everyone back sometime soon. 

    Stay safe and maybe get your fencing fix via Youtube.

    Well, the new format Golden Gauntlet event was a success, and fabulous that the AHFC retains the trophy. After a hard-fought (and very close) battle, AHFC broke away at the very end to finish 80/70. Well done to rivals ASC, who fought with great honour.


    Better luck next year to the CSFC team, who were defeated by ASC in the preliminary round 42/45, it was an excellent match to behold.
    Also grand was the presence of four junior foil fencing teams! So splendid to have 3 pistes running at once.


    Sillliness was had as guest Tully Probert and our own Brown Baron went head to head in the unicycle jousts - it is safe to say that Tully can claim total victory in this event.


    Thank you to our Guest Referees: Bruce, Darren, Zvonko, Nadine, Nalin, Clayton, and Darcy.
    Additional thanks to BBQ chef Carlos, and all the providers of delicious salads and sweets.

    Welcome to fencing 2020!

    A reminder to all members that the entire BPS grounds are closed on catastrophic fire days.
    This is a site wide policy implemented by the school and endorsed by AHFC.

    Yes, we know you have to evacuate and the gym is air-conditioned - but don't go there. It's dangerous. Training's cancelled. Fiery doom.
    Seriously, stop mucking about with swords and protect your loved ones!

    Stay safe,
    AHFC

    FSA would like to advise all clubs that the equipment requirements for Under 15 aged events has been relaxed to be the same as the Open-B requirements. Please review the equipment requirements on the FSA website to confirm details. The board is hoping that this will allow more of the club based junior fencers to participate in these events.

    The FSA board would also like to remind the clubs and fencers that the new FIE mask strap requirements come into effect for the FSA U17/20, Open and Veteran events from July 1, 2019.

    If you have any questions, please contact your local FSA representative.
