Easter Training Times

Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in News

Hi all,

Due to the Easter vacation being busier than usual with external bookings, please take note of the following reduced training times over the vacation period:

Monday/Thursday: 9pm to 10.30pm
Wednesday: 7am to 9am

No training Easter Monday (6th April).

Any epeeists wishing to train should also note the Friday session as prior to Easter, pentathletes would be very keen for you to join them due to their impending varsity match.

I suggest anyone who plans on training during the vacation emails the mailing list prior to the training slot to find out who else may be fencing on that day.

All the best,

Upcoming AGM

Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in News

It’s nearly time to elect a new committee so I thought I’d get the ball rolling for everyone to start thinking about whether they would like to stand for a position!

The AGM will occur early next term on the evening of Wednesday 2nd Week (6th May) (Location and time TBC.) All positions on the committee will be open for election. A full list of these positions is detailed in the E-mail sent out to the mailing list. If you would like to stand for a position, please email me by Friday 1st Week (1st May). You will be required to give a short hust and then answer a few questions from other members. Please don’t be intimidated by this: we’re not trying to catch you out, simply find out what ideas you have for a particular role. You must be a fully paid-up member of the club to stand.

Please do consider standing for a position! Being on the committee is enjoyable and the primary way that you can influence what happens in your fencing club – not to mention good CV fodder! If you have any questions about the AGM generally, please feel free to speak to me (Ali), and if you have any questions pertaining to a specific role, please contact the current post holder.

Full notice of the AGM (location, time etc.) and the Agenda will be sent out before the start of term, but please put this date in your diary now! It is important to have as many members there as possible. It is usually quite quick, refreshments are provided and there are some light hearted moments! Proxy votes will not be permitted.

All the best,
