End Of Semester Activities
09 Dec 2013
Thanks for a great fall semester!
Dear Cal Fencing,
[END OF THE SEMESTER] Thank you all for being a part of Cal Fencing's great semester. Since this August, we have shared the sport fencing with hundreds of students, continued the long Berkeley fencing tradition, competed as a team at two tournaments, and enjoyed many fun social events. With individual hard work and Coach Abdul's training, our advanced and novice fencers have taken home seven golds, three silvers, and one bronze from the NCIFL tournaments. Congratulations on a very successful semester!
[RRR WEEK ACTIVITIES] This week we have several fun activities to end your semester with your fencing friends! Even if you haven't been able to make it to practice recently, we hope to get the chance to see you at some of our events!
Tuesday, 6pm: End of Semester Banquet at Barney's. Even if you can't make it right at 6, please do drop by anytime to have a snack, drink, or dessert! This is a chance for us to socialize in non-athletic apparel so dress in classy attire (or whatever you're comfortable in)! Please bring cash to make splitting the check easier.
Wednesday, 9pm: Karaoke! Meet in front of the RSF to carpool to Jaguar . If you have a car and would be willing to drive some people, we would really appreciate it! Be sure to get dinner beforehand. There isn't much food available around there late at night. Bring around $5 to cover the cost.
Thursday, 7pm: Capture the Flag. Meet by the Campanile to play the glow-in-the-dark version of the classic Cal Fencing tradition. Since you probably don't want to play on an empty stomach, make sure to have a snack beforehand. After a few rounds, we plan on getting some food together so bring some spending money if you'd like to eat after!
[EBFG HOLIDAY POTLUCK] Coach Abdul has invited all Cal fencers to the East Bay Fencers Gym holiday potluck on Saturday 12/21 at 6pm! The event will be at EBFG (1429 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Oakland, CA 94612) so we'll get the chance to see the gym, visit Abdul and our East Bay friends, and meet fencers of all ages. This is a potluck so please remember to represent Cal Fencing well by bringing food to share.
[DECAL] In the spring, the Cal Fencing DeCal will be returning after a six year hiatus! This is a great chance for students to get an introduction to the sport and the club while earning units. Be sure to spread the word to your friends! You can find more info here.
Thank you for a great semester! I hope to see you at some of our RRR week events!
