NEWS AND ANNOUCEMENTS FROM BATTLEBORN FENCING CLUB

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!

Covid Updates @ Battle Born Fencing Club

BBFC  COVID-19  Updates

May 15, 2020

We hope that our BBFC family continues to be healthy and safe.  We miss everyone and miss the energy derived from your dedication on the strip.  As we collectively experience this unprecedented, ever-changing time, we encourage our fencers to remain positive and active. We are closely monitoring the latest news and are actively preparing for our  re-opening.  Until then, Coach Marian and I remain adaptive with our online Zoom classes.  Fencers are reminded that, once we can return to the club, the only way to hit the ground running is to keep physically and mentally fit, and thus online class attendance is strongly recommended.   

Even though, on the national platform, we are a highly-ranked fencing club, BBFC is still a small business with operating expenses, and thus we would like to sincerely thank everyone who has continued to support BBFC by keeping up monthly tuition payments.  Your loyalty will not be forgotten and allows us to plan for a safe and successful re-opening, as soon as we get the green-light from Governor Sisolak.  So until that much anticipated day, please check back for updates and we wish you all excellent health.
