2014 Calgary Fence-a-thon
Mark your calendars!!! Plans are underway for the 3rd Annual Calgary Fence-a-thon to be held
Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 8am-8pm.
More details to come – we look forward to seeing you there.
A big thank you to all who came out to support the second annual fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation on September 28, 2013. The day long event included individual and team competitions, the opportunity for kids and adults to try fencing, a silent auction, and tours of the Calgary Fencing Club.
Mayor Naheed Nenshi visited in the afternoon and enjoyed some time with the young fencers as they explained and demonstrated the sport.
(Yes, that is the Mayor in the photo above surrounded by Calgary Fencing Club members and our Head Coach and Maitre d’Armes, Glenn Samson)
We had a visit from Chef Mario for lunch and his Pimentos food truck was a big hit.
The fundraiser received exceptional support from local businesses and organizations that included Canadian Western Bank, Bell Canada, Skyline Group, Scarpone’s Italian Store, Big Fish Restaurant, Rascals Pet Supplies, Caffe’ Umbria, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, Eyeclectic Eyewear and Optometry, First Choice Haircutters, Red Rose Florist, the Project Management Institute, Hotel Alma and the Vecova Centre.
The event raised over $3,600.00 towards the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Get Ready for September 27, 2014!!
We are pleased to announce that we are joining with Epic Fencing, Gladiators Fencing, and Priori Fencing clubs to host
the second annual charity 12 hour Fence-a-thon to support
The Heart and Stroke Foundation.
We have a goal of raising $10,000.00 to donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
If you are a fencer – get donations and fence in our events and tournament.
If you are a spectator – spectate, donate and join in the fun and games.
If you are a person who wants to try out fencing — register for one of our trial classes.
Come and support a great cause and enjoy while you are here
you may find that you love the sport so much you may want to stay a while.
We are excited to confirm the Honorable Mayor Nenshi will be dropping by — maybe we can get him to suit up and try a parry or two?!?!
