Schedule for fencing at Academie Lafayette, 6903 Oak

There is no fencing at  A.L. for the rest of this week, and Monday is President’s days. So, our next practice there is Wednesday the 21st. New security policies require that we must enter  through the doors nearest the office, and that we may not prop the door open. Meaning that there will be two windows where a coach will be by the door to let fencers in. From 6:20 to 6:40, and from 6:55 to 7:05. If you find no coach to let you in, text 785-550-6718 (Mark), or 785-550-6716 (Sam) for entrance.
