Gear return on Wednesday 21/08/19

As the Winter Sport season has ended, all fencers are asked to return borrowed equipment on Wednesday at the start of Lunch 1 (unless you’re fencing in the Nationals). Meet me at the Cricket Nets to have your name signed off upon return.
Please remember to wash and clean the gear before you return them.

Note: We will need to do a stocktake later this term (when all the gear has been returned) so I will be asking for volunteers to assist.
