DFA will again be in the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade!  We will be fencing along the parade route on El Paseo.

Date of the Golf Cart Parade is Sunday, October 29, and commences at 12 noon.  Theme for this year’s parade is Desert Safari.

If you are interested in participating, I have the signup sheet at the club.

There will be an NAC (North American Cup) in our backyard this October 13-16, in Anaheim.  Division 1, Division 2, Cadet and Wheelchair fencing.

Two of our DFA fencers will be competing:  Dennis Stephen and Ariana Dorticos.

If you’ve never been to an NAC, you should treat yourself and go.  They are huge.  And, you see some of the top fencers competing and the vendors will be there if you’d like to purchase some fencing gear.

Halloween is Tuesday, October 31.  Yes, we will fence at DFA, usual schedule.  The club will close at 5:00 p.m., so everyone can get into costume and Trick-or-Treat, or enjoy Halloween and Fall Festival events.  Enjoy!!!

Blissful fencing and have a fun and spooky Halloween!!
