The Board recently undertook a Competition Review, one of the outcomes of which was the decision to form a Competitions Sub-committee. This would be charged with the management and delivery of the Closed Competitons in Wales. I will lead the Sub-committee, and act as a link into the Board.
This article is a call for volunteers to be part of this Sub-committee.
The entire Welsh team, showing determination, confidence and tremendous team spirit, are to be commended on their efforts in Manchester. Some sterling individual and well fought Team matches enabled Wales to achieve a collection of medals.
The Board recently published its review of competitions, following a request for feedback (Competition Review Summary). Following the publication of this, we received a number of requests to reconsider our approach to Youth Events.
I am pleased to report that, following detailed discussions, we have reconsidered the approach to Youth Events as follows:
I can also confirm our intention to maintain the current pricing structure for Youth events; the entry fee will NOT be increased. We are keen to encourage entry, and not discourage by increasing costs.
I would like to put on record our appreciation to all of those who contacted us - we would certainly encourage you to contact us if you have any queries or comments.
The Board recently met to undertake a 'Competition Review', following a request for feedback from the fencing community in Wales. We would like to say a big 'thank-you' to everyone who gave feedback. All of it was included our review, and it was pleasing to see the level of response we received.
