Recent last minute room changes

Dear members of the UBC Fencing Club,

We are aware that there have been many last minute room changes over the past few months and we are anticipating similar situations to happen throughout the next few months. This is due to changes in the booking system of the university’s Alma Mater Society (AMS). They have just switched to a new booking system and are still trying to figure out how to allocate rooms efficiently for the few hundred clubs under UBC AMS.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. We assure you that practice will always be on every Mondays and Thursdays at 6:30pm, either in The Nest or the Old SUB, unless otherwise stated. It is advised that you do check the practice schedule for any last minute notices for room changes. They will be posted on our Facebook page and/or BlogSpot page and we are definitely anticipating more regular room bookings in the future. Thank you.

We're Officially Thunderbirds Now!

Hey fencers,

The fencing competitive team has now transitioned to a new program called the UBC Thunderbirds Sport Clubs (TSC). The UBC TSC is the newest competition option for UBC students. The main difference between staying with the AMS in previous years and transitioning to UBCTSC is now the competitive team can represent the university going into competitions.

Our recreation team is still affiliated with AMS and we welcome all levels of fencers. However, if you are interested in making the competitive team during the season please come to practice and contact us through fencingubc@gmail.com. Alternatively, you can approach one of our lovely executives and they will happily provide information regarding joining the team.

Looking forward to seeing you guys at practice!
