Catching up and the Cookout!

So... There's a slight chance that it's been a while, so.... TIME TO CATCH UP!

Dues have been paid, and that leaves us with 60ish dues paying members which is super fantastic. This is the largest number of fencers the club has ever had (or at least that anyone can remember), and Eric is pretty sure that this makes us the biggest fencing club in the southeast. I think that is pretty darn cool.

We've put in an order of stuff. Lots of stuff. We'll be getting new stuff and stuff to make the old stuff work like new, and that is definitely something to get excited about!

One of our sneaky methods of getting people to love fencing and stick around is to give them food, because who doesn't like free food! So about that cookout...

It was lots of fun! Delicious food thanks to GrillMasters Bryan and Lukas. DJ Arren provided some awesome tunes, folks were playing four square, Frisbee, and people may or may not have been playing with matches and we may or may not have tried to light Silly Putty on fire... >.> <.<
