We are very sad to report that Salem Fencing Club will be closing at the end of August.
We would like to thank Northwest Fencing Center for providing Salem Fencing Club with Coach Michael McTigue for the 2016/2017 season. However, even with all of his efforts and those of the board we have not been able to find a sustainable model for SFC. Michael will be moving on to NWFC's Beaverton site full-time in September and we wish him well.
We are grateful to report that the Northwest Fencing Center will be honoring your membership in Salem Fencing Club. All you need to do is register on their website, they have our membership roster, and you'll then be a member of NWFC for the 2017/2018 season at no cost regardless of when you joined SFC. This gesture is indicative of the support NWFC has shown throughout the process.
We will be working to sell our fencing gear and equipment at a sale in early September. Please keep watching our Facebook page for information on the closeout sale and other timeline information.
Coach McTigue will be at the club this Monday through Wednesday, the 28th-30th, so please come and fence and help us wind up the end an era.
For those of you with lockers, you must clear them out on the days listed above, or on Saturday the 2nd between 9:00-4:00. We will consider anything not picked up as abandoned.
While we are extremely disappointed not to be continuing, we are proud of our Salem club, gratified to have introduced 100's of people to this amazing sport and even produce a number of world class fencers, and hopefully built a history in the sport that will continue to make Salem proud.
