Dingwall Fencing Club will restart after the holidays on 14 January 2016 – note that this is a change from the previously intimated date of the 7th.
We hope to see all our familiar faces then and look forward to meeting some new ones too.
You can also put in your diaries that we wont be fencing on 28 January as we don’t have the hall that night.
In the meantime the committee would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. See you in 2016
The final session of 2015 will take place on 17 December, usual time and place. We will then take a short break for the school holidays,returning early in the new year – watch this space for the date.

Dingwall Fencing Club AGM will take place on Thursday 24 September at 7:15 PM in the small gym at Dingwall Academy.
Anyone with an interest in the club is welcome to come along, but only full (paid up) members of the club can vote or raise business. Membership forms will be available from next week.
Businesses will include the election of this years executive – Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. Nominations for any of these positions can be emailed to the current secretary at email@example.com at least two weeks prior to the meeting. Each nomination should include the name of the nomination plus a proposer and seconder. All three must be full, paid up members.
Any other items of business should also be emailed to the secretary by 10 September.
Dingwall Fencing Club are pleased to unveil our new logo. Designed by our own David Ferguson.
The logo is inspired by the Cabar Feidh (Stags Antlers) which can be seen in a variety of places around the region. As well as being the badge of the chiefs of the MacKenzie Family and of the legendary Seaforth Highlanders, the classic Caber Feidh can also be found in the badges of a number of local sporting clubs including Ross Sutherland Rugby Club in Invergordon, Caberfeidh Cammanachd shinty club in Strathpeffer and of course the mighty Ross County FC in Dingwall.
Our own stylized version – the Cabar Iarainn – started off life as a pencil sketch on a post-it note before eventually being recreated and finished off freehand in the open source image editing package GIMP.
We will soon be completing the rebranding of our online presence and will hopefully soon be working on producing club T-shirts and other merchandise. Watch this space.
The design remains the intellectual property and copyright of David Ferguson, who has granted usage to the club.
We have set up a new Facebook page for the club which you can find at www.facebook.com/DingwallFencing. Like the page for news and updates.
This is our official, public Facebook presence, although we also have a Facebook group for use by club members and ‘friends of Dingwall Fencing club’.
