Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 3. April 13, 1946

VUC Swords Club

VUC Swords Club

At the annual general meeting of the VUC Swords Club the following officers were elected:—
  • Club Captain: Pix Hurrell.
  • Vice-Captain: Stewart Cathie.
  • Secretary-Treasurer: Graham McArley.
  • Committee: Miss B. M. Adams. Peter Hampton and Ray Sutherland.

Mr. Norman Dickson was elected a life member of the club in recognition of his sterling services in setting the club on its feet and in appreciation of his services as honorary instructor.

Over thirty attended the meeting, including twenty prospective new members. An exhibition bout was staged for the benefit of the newcomers, to give them some idea of the sport, and to disillusion those who thought that they were in for an easy time.

Owing to a shortage of equipment, both new and second-hand, the club will unfortunately have to limit membership until further supplies come to hand.

However, despair not, you would-be swordsmen, further supplies are on the way. The Gym. may yet see the day when it will quake to the rhythm of "parry quatre, riposte, parry six, straight attack," expounded by a hundred exponents of the art.
