Glasgow Master at Arms 2016 - Results

Even though this year's event was smaller that last year's, there was a great amount of fun at the Glasgow Master at Arms.  People even put up with some very strange electrics - we have now decided that the Linlithgow electricity supply was too slow ;)  Next year we will aim to be back in the metropolis that is Glasgow where power is plentiful.

Beginners' Night

GWEFC will be holding an introduction to fencing course on Thursday 26 May.  Give us two hours of your time and we will teach you how to fence.  Bring a friend - it's better to learn together.

Also an oppertunity for those who have attended previous Beginners' Nights to refresh their memory about fencing.

Glasgow Open 2016 - Results

This year's Glasgow Open was another well attended affair, with several club members competing on both days.  As usual we also had a full complement of people helping run the cafe.
