We at Epic Fencing Club are closely following the events surrounding the COVID-19 virus unfolding in Alberta. With the closure of all Alberta schools our Board of Directors and coaching staff have decided to temporarily close Epic Fencing Club, cancel any upcoming events at our club as well as cancel remote classes at both Trico and the University of Calgary. Our clubs policy is to take direction from the Calgary Board of Education and follow their lead.
All classes are cancelled effective immediately. We are also cancelling Friday Open Fencing, Epic Circuit, and the Easter Cup Tournament.
We’re unsure at this time how long the club will remain closed, but we will watch the situation closely and keep our membership informed of what’s going on and when we will open for regular classes again.
We thank you for your understanding. The well being of our members and coaches are of the utmost importance to us.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either myself or coach Peter.
