Hey,

Does anyone know any ways of getting funding for a new club? For some reason people don't go around giving away free money - it's rather annoying. :upset:

Cheers

All the free money you need (500 - 5000) for new kit etc...

If you need any help, just PM me...

If it's in England, there's always the grants page (http://www.englandfencing.org.uk/index.php?module=announce&ANN_user_op=view&ANN_id=36&c2b2087e29649cfc7d824ba95ea25f1c=aeb7e4c498eca39d1 8add71be7527bf4) of the England Fencing site (HORRIBLE link hidden).

Also there should be someone on your local council responsible for giving out funding information. You may find it helps with the application if it's for young people, or those in a disadvantaged area.

Highway robbery, piracy - it's what you've been training for all these years.

Another good tip - don't turn up to training sessions wearing a mask, riding a horse and brandishing a flint-lock pistol.

Always remember to change into your track-suit before you go.

What?! Fencing without a mask?! Haven't you got any sense of propriety, man?!
