Maskless Fencing!

As Nevada has returned to “pre-pandemic status” if you have been fully vaccinated, you can fence without facemasks! You may choose to continue to fence with a mask as USA Fencing has not yet indicated if facemasks will be required at Summer Nationals so this may be subject to change.  We will no longer be checking temperatures on arrival.  We will continue fist/elbow bumps and no handshakes as this has been our healthiest season!
