Hello LFC family! We’re happy to report that our fall session is off to a great start. We wanted to share some updates and reminders for you as we get into this year.
USA Fencing Membership
Please remember to renew your USA Fencing membership! Memberships expire on July 31 of each year. A current USA Fencing membership is required before you participate in any classes or open fencing at LFC. You can renew your membership here: https://www.usafencing.org/
Board members needed!
LFC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a Board of Directors. We are currently looking for 2-3 new at-large board members! The board meets once a month on a weekday evening. This is a great opportunity for a fencer or parent who would like to become more involved! If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you are not interested in joining the board, we are always looking for volunteers! Please reach out if you’d like to help out. LFC is entirely volunteer-run, so we depend upon people like you!
Face Mask Policy
Our current mask policy is that any fencer who is under 12 or is otherwise not fully vaccinated must wear a face covering at all times within LFC. Coaches of youth classes must also wear a face covering at LFC. Fully vaccinated fencers may choose not to wear a face covering; however, face coverings are strongly encouraged regardless of vaccination status. Fencers must also stay home if experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms or following any exposure to Covid-19.
We also want to assure our members that we are watching the current Covid-19 situation in Lincoln closely. While we have not seen new Directed Health Measures issued by the city of Lincoln, we understand that this is a rapidly changing situation and will keep our members posted if for any reason our safety procedures change. We encourage everyone to stay as safe as possible and reach out if you need anything.
Gloves For Sale
Last but not least, we have gloves for sale! We ask that all youth class members purchase their own glove, which is yours to keep. If you have not yet purchased one, please reach out to your coach. Adult sizes are available as well.
If you would like to purchase any other gear, we recommend ordering through one of the vendors listed on the USA Fencing website here: https://www.usafencing.org/
Stay safe, and see you at club!
