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.
Michael Clemitson and Steve Poyser (Whitchurch Fencing Club) were not able to attend the complimentary First Aid course organised by Welsh Fencing earlier in the year. Consequently, they attended a course independently, and found a competitively priced course at ‘Cardiff First Aid Centre’, Penarth Road, Cardiff. They highly recommend this particular course to other coaches in need of First Aid training, which, as well as being very good value, also offers an Annual Refresher, free of charge.
To contact Cardiff First Aid Centre, visit their website - www.cardifffirstaidcentre.net/page3.htm , or phone 07853 591036.
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.
