The club will be open this afternoon, and we hope everyone has a safe drive to practice. Theresa will not be in today, she'll be back on Thursday and Saturday. This week will end on a sad note: Alex will be leaving us for 6 months to pursue a work opportunity in the Caribbean. His last day at the club will be Thursday. After practice, we'll be heading over to Rockwell's. Please join us to wish him well.  Clint will be in on Saturday for lessons, for the first time in months.

Sunday, we'll be hosting the Youth & Unclassified Saber at the Irving Park YMCA. If you're interested in fencing, or having questions about competitions in general, be sure to ask before registration ends on Saturday.
