Lyndon Martin - Honorary Life Member Award

Lyndon 3Following what must be the longest award ceremony, we were at last able to present Lyndon with his award.  The Welsh Open was a great event to do this, as friends and fencers were able to be there.

The original award was announced after the AGM in 2020, and the final presentation was held on Sunday after the Men's Epee poules were complete.

Congratulations, Lyndon, for a life in fencing - competitive fencer, coach and supporter!

The format has changed to one weapon per day to avoid overnight stays as part of the COVID mitigation measures.

teamo

teamo is a communications platform, used to support team selection and communication. The platform is app-based, and allows parents to register their children.  It is fully GDPR-compliant and allows parents to see any comms and invitations directed to their children, and respond on their behalf.  It reduces the need for emails, which are difficult to track, and often missed because they end up in Junk folders.
