|At Cavs, the health and well-being of our members, their families, and the wider community is of the highest importance to us. Given the rapidly changing, world-wide COVID-19 situation, the committee has come to the conclusion that club sessions should be temporarily closed. This is to reinforce community social distancing and other measures recommended by health authorities.|
As a result of this decision, there will be no fencing session this Saturday 21 March. The current plan is to return around the first week of the second WA school term, at the end of April/start of May. Please keep an eye out for updates through this email channel and Facebook about our next session dates. You can also find information from the wider fencing community at theFencing WA and Fencing Australia websites.
Summary:Fencing sessions at ECU Cavalier School of Fencing will be suspended temporarily to help reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus.There will be no session on Saturday 21 March.Return dates planned for end April/start May.This decision was not taken lightly, and takes into account the emerging situation in Australia and overseas, including temporary closures and postponements affecting fencing clubs and events around the world. It is our belief that early measures will help reduce and shorten long-term impacts of the pandemic in our community. Just like you, we hate to miss out on fencing time – but we hope that doing our bit now will help everyone get back to normal that much quicker.
|I would like to thank you all for your patience whilst the committee has been resolving the best course of action to deal with the constantly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Temporarily closing club sessions is not a decision we take lightly but one we found necessary. Above all else, we value the health and safety of all club members and their families, and we want to make sure we’ve done all we can to help protect you and the wider community from possible infection.|
We will continue to monitor the situation and I look forward to seeing you all when club sessions resume.
President, ECU Cavalier School of Fencing
