    Adelaide is hosting the Open and Veteran National Championships this November (including the Oceania Veteran Champs, and the Australian Youth Circuit Final). 

    We need all hands on deck to make this event happen, so please consider volunteering a few hours of your time over the weekend to help demonstrate to the other states what an amazing event we can run! 

    We will be setting up in the afternoon/evening of Thurs 24 Nov, then the event runs Fri 25 - Tues 29 Nov. 

    Set up and pack up is easy - everyone does a great job for the state events already - it's just on a larger scale! 

    We also need plenty of volunteers for weapons check - each fencer's equipment needs to be inspected to ensure it's up to standard. This is something that our fencers 12+ can help with (bring mum or dad along too!). 

    For information on the shift times, and to sign up to volunteer: Nationals Volunteer Roster
