Fencers Club Veterans on Guard  
Combat Challenge 
On Sunday, November 15, we will be hosting the 4th annual Veterans on Guard Team Fencing and Fundraising Challenge. Each year, the event teams up senior epee fencers with our Veteran members and Military Veterans from the Veterans on Guard program.

Since its inception in 2013, Fencers Club Veterans on Guard Program promotes physical fitness and emotional well-being in military Veterans through the combat sport of fencing. Additionally, in early 2020, we have launched FC Veterans On Guard Wheelchair Program. With a grant from the VA, we will be expanding the wheelchair fencing program this season.

Update on Safety Protocols 
Your safety remains our number one priority. We will continue to do what we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  
During the past two months of operating at 1/3 capacity, we have not had any reported cases. We thank our coaches for their support and help in enforcing our safety measures, and thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 
The FC Reopening Task Force met to discuss the club's safety measures as we head into the colder months. In order to achieve the best ventilation possible for everyone, the decision was made to keep the windows open, the ceiling fans on for air movement, and HEPA units kept on at maximum capacity.
This decision may cause some discomfort when the temperature drops significantly. We recommend fencers wear layers while fencing and warm up thoroughly before practice. Also, note that the building has turned on the heat and we have opened the windows from the top to prevent direct wind chill. 
We appreciate your support and feedback especially through these difficult times.
