Schedule of upcoming events

Fall 2020

Dec 4 (7:00 pm)

UMich & MSU Social Event

We will be having a zoom event with some University of Michigan fencers! The night will include trivia and other activities to get to know their members, since we have not been able to fence with them this semester. Keep a lookout for the Zoom link on our Facebook group when it gets closer to the event!

Sep 18 (8:00 pm)

Friday Social Event

This Friday at 8:00 pm we will be having our first social event designed by Ceili (Women’s Epee Captain)! This is a great chance to get to know people outside of the practice setting and have some nice chats. We are currently trying to get a headcount of interested members – be sure to like Ceili’s Facebook post on our Facebook page if you would like to participate. 

Sep 15 (6:30 – 7:30 pm)

Fencing Watch Party!

In a nerdy way, we can call fencing “physical chess” and while our virtual practices are good for the ‘physical’ part, a huge part (and many member’s favorite) of fencing is the chess. Videos will cover actual bouts, highlight reels, and just funny compilations of people wiping out or embarrassing themselves. Watch party will be streamed on kast.live – keep an eye out on our Discord and Facebook for the link, or reach out to us at fencing@msu.edu!

Sep 14 (6:30 – 7:00 pm)

New Member Welcome Meeting

After our recent email blast, we are planning our *second* new member welcome meeting for all interested! This will be an opportunity for new members to learn more about our club and sport. We will be giving a virtual rundown of what to expect as a member of our club, and introducing you to the basics of fencing (footwork, bladework, etc.) – all bundled up in a beautiful presentation by our very own Jake Iwankovitsch and Ayla Schwartz. 

Sep 8
