Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 1. March 4, 1953
The Victoria College Swords Club has maintained an extremely good standard in the comparatively few years that it has been in existence and new members eager to carry this tradition will be welcomed this year as always. After about fifteen months' tuition and regular practice all newcomers to the club are given the opportunity to enter the Provincial Junior Tournament and to show the seniors who have trained them how well their advice has been acted upon. Club nights are on Wednesdays in the Gym. and there is an informal meeting on Saturday mornings.
Only a pair of sandshoes is needed when starting fencing and although later on a foil and a mask must be bought, the equipment for this sport is much less costly than popularly suposed and certainly much less than for other sports offering fewer attractions.
The AGM is to be held on the 25th of this month, followed on the 30th by a demonstration of foil, epee and sabre. National Provincial champions will be seen in action and a short explanation given of each weapon. All are cordially invited. Further details will be posted.
