February Newsletter ..
There is now a British Veterans Fencing page on Facebook. This will be used for BVF news, photos, articles and links etc.
What was the BVF group is now Veteran Fencers Chat. This is not a BVF group, but is a friendly, informal chat group for Veteran fencers with membership from around the world.
If you are Facebook user and are not already a member of this group and would like to be, please send a Facebook request to join. It is and will remain a closed group as this makes it easier to control spam and any inappropriate posts.
Suggested European Events
Here is a list of accessible events in Europe in the 2017/2018 season.
Membership is open to Men and Women aged 40 or over or who become 40 in the current calendar year.
This is the same as saying if you are 40 or more on December 31st then you are a vet.
Vets events such as the European or World Championships have a similar rule: your qualifying age is your age on December 31st this year.
BVF Committee meetings
If you have any matters that you wish the committee to consider please email Marcia Stretch
