Calendar update

Hi all you keen sabre fencers. We got distracted and have updated the calendar for you.

Those of you who cleverly subscribed so we do all the trawling for you, will have got the updates straight to your email.

The rest of you will probably wise up sometime as this saves you a load of time and effort. Or at least that is the idea.

Does it cost much? No.

How much? Nothing for you as the sabre club has committed financial backing for the next few years.

Isn’t it using donations to the charity which owns it? No.

So, if you want to save yourselves some time please feel free to subscribe to the sabre club calendar and even to put a link to it on your club website. We won’t mind. In fact we’d be rather pleased.

Where is it? Here

I subscribe to the website and get these posts but don’t get the calendar updates! Why?

Not everyone might want to see the calendar updates so you have to subscribe to that separately using the subscribe button just below the calendar. Or maybe it’s because I haven’t worked out how to do that for you πŸ™

Stratford Cadet Sabre ‘B’ BRC

Traditionally run on alternate days with the Hamlet Open, this year is no exception.

Held in Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, which is also home to the Royal Shakespeare Company, this is a must visit location πŸ™‚

As it is a ‘B’ BRC the multiplier for Cadet ranking purposes is 100 as per the GBR Calendar

CHECK IN TIMES:

Women’s Sabre Saturday 1230

Men’s Sabre Sunday 1130

N.B. Parking is a bit scarce and you will need to pay. There is other parking available in the town so it might be worth considering dropping off and walking back from another carpark.

N.B. The floor has been known to be rather slippery at times so come prepared with wet towel to dampen your fencing shoes unless otherwise advised that the organisers are going to lay pistes instead of using the bare wooden floor.

Plovdiv satellite is now in Sofia

For anyone thinking of entering the Bulgarian Satellite competition on 24-25 September – It’s actually in Sofia not in Plovdiv as originally posted. The FIE have updated the competition but BF have not yet done so, so please be aware.

We haven’t updated the sabre club calendar yet either πŸ™‚

Calendar update

We’ve been busy

The calendars have been updated with all the events we know about up to the beginning of February 2023 as it stands.

There will definitely be some events coming in which fall in that period but which are not yet published.

As we get more details we will publish them.

The calendars are not perfect but you can subscribe to them so you get the updates and don’t each individually have to go trawling through various sites and calendars to keep up.

If you do subscribe it is easy. Though sometimes annoying if an event is duplicated and then removed as an email is automatically sent out even if we don’t want it to be. So apologies to the subscribers who will have seen a bunch of IWAS country events “Cancelled” as in fact this is because someone (me, Peter Howes – still living so still learning) was stupid enough not to just update the name when the City details were added to the IWAS calendar. For instance Pisa instead of Italy. Sorry about that. The actual events are still there but the calendar is no no longer cluttered with duplicates.

Also a couple of events have changed dates so you need to pay special attention to the third weekend in October.

The RAF Open has been added but we are awaiting information on which event is on which day as this does not currently show up. If you don’t want to have to look out for that and other things, subscribe to the calendar πŸ™‚

N.B. We will never sell your data or anything like that.

Happy fencing everyone!
