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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. This will be handled confidentially on a case-by-case basis.
Until we reconvene, private tuition can be organised by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
