Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 1. March 3, 1954

Winter Tournament . .

Winter Tournament . . .

The climax of the University fencing year comes at Winter Tournament in August, when teams from all Colleges meet for competition. Victoria has done well in this, and has an enviable reputation for sportsmanship as well as for efficiency. This year the tournament is in Wellington and as host College we have added responsibilities, we will also have added pleasure, for the N.Z.U. fencing crowd are extraordinarily pleasant people.

The other weapons taught in the Club are the sabre and the epee. Each of these has its peculiar characteristics and will inevitably gain its adherents. Arrangements will be made for classes in these weapons to be held when members have an adequate knowledge of the foil.

The Club has lockers where personal equipment may be left, and for those unable to come on Wednesdays there is a smaller and less official group which meets on Saturday morning. All those interested in learning more about the sport are cordially invited to make themselves known on either day. Tim Beaglehole is the Secretary and Ian Free the Treasurer. Tea is served on Wednesday nights. We look forward to seeing you.
