We’re getting closer to moving to our nomadic winter camp at the Rotunda.
After fencing outdoors since June — in 95-degree heat, the sun in our eyes, the biting flies going to town on our ankles, even during thunderstorms and rain squalls — we are pleased to announce that we have been able to finagle an indoor fencing venue for the coming winter months.
It is located at the Rotunda in Baltimore City. We’ll get you the full address as soon as we have the floor in fencing shape. The good news for parents: There’s a Starbucks nearby, as are various shopping facilities.
Our Tuesday and Friday open bouting for epees will continue at 6:00PM. Larbi will be available for lessons and Covid-compatible classes on most days of the week.
This will not run through Loyola. Please make arrangements with Larbi directly.
Open bouting will continue free of floor fees.
The BMFA epee group will start meeting at the Towson High multi-purpose athletic fields every Tuesday and Friday (weather permitting.)
Vince and I have found an abandoned tartan pole-vault track at Towson High School that has the perfect dimensions for fencing. After 6 o’clock, there is nice shade over the strip, so fencing is really not that bad even with a mask underneath the mask.
Towson High is located at 69 Cedar Ave, Towson, MD 21286. Coming from Aigburth, there is plenty of free parking on the main lot. (Don’t go to the main entrance on Cedar, use the rear lot!)
Tentative first date: 6/12/20 @ 6PM. Bring water.
We’ll have the wireless going!
Just a quick reminder that Baltimore Midatlantic Fencing Academy’s Epee Program kicks off the fencing year on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, at 7:30PM at Wheeler Hall.
Baltimore MidAtlantic Fencing Academy offers an ongoing class for beginning and advanced epee fencers that focuses on footwork and blade competency, as well as applying fencing concepts to bouting.
