Start time mix up for U13 Boys Foil Teams on 05/08/17

Hi all,

I want to unreservedly apologise for the incorrect start time for the U13 Boys Foil Team School Championships communicated to our students on our website.

I had made the mistake when updating the SBHS Fencing calendar upon learning of the latest changes to the dates and start times made by NSWFA. In my haste, I incorrectly transferred the wrong start time for the U13 Boys Foil Team event and the error went unnoticed, leading to the mix-up and confusion on Saturday.

I was not able to attend the competition on Saturday but I know it must have been a frustrating experience to have to wait hours to start your competition. I will endeavour to be more vigilant with ensuring start times are accurately communicated so that this incident will not happen again.

My sincere apologies for the inconveniences caused and thank you for your understanding with this matter.

This is a great opportunity to reflect on another successful season and to start planning the End of Season Fencing Dinner.

I invite all interested parents and supporters to attend.
