"Just wanted to let you and the fencers at Cincinnanti Fencing Club know that on we'll be doing our first GloFence night from 630-830. This will be 2 hours of open electric fencing with many other fencers while our space is lit up with black lights and DJ lights.
It is $15 per person/ $10 per person for groups 3 or more. We hope to see many of you there! Let me know if you have any questions regarding it."
NKYFA is at it again. This time, they are taking down St. Patrick's Day with another epee tournament.
As per usual, they will be starting with a Y14 epee tournament, then moving on to an Unrated Epee, finishing with a Senior Mixed Epee to wrap things up. It will be fun, th

A new space, some new gear, but that same, classic Cincinnati Fencing Club look!
Now that we've settled back into the ancestral stomping grounds of the CFC, the Clifton Community Center, we're trying to make the most of our new storage area! While that might not be exciting to everyone, for our instructors, having a rolling cart for jackets so that they are organized and have chance to air out a little, is a pretty big deal.
Also, we've invested in our first Virtual Scoring Machine, which allows us to do simulated direct elimination Epee bouts with the VSM's integrated software, which is an awful lot of fun!
So, heading into the summer months, come join us for some safe and friendly combat!
Fencing.net - NO LONGER RECOMMENDED FOR PURCHASING GEAR
We have recently ordered equipment for the club from fencing.net. The order was not fully filled and all attempts to reach the company by phone, by email, and by use of their customer service help desk have gone unanswered.
Additionally, their listed phone number returns a no longer in service message.
The portion of the order that was fulfilled, took an exceedingly long time to arrive, and was drop shipped directly from Absolute Fencing Gear. Their order was missing some of the equipment that was listed on the invoice from fencing.net. This leads me to believe that fencing.net was slow in filling, then finally passed the order through a 3rd party, missing part of the order due.
We have given fencing.net as much benefit of the doubt as possible on this, but it is apparent that fencing.net is no longer a trusted vendor and recommend that you try one of the other companies listed.
