Swords Club

Swords Club

The A.G.M. of the Swords Club, A held recently, was attended by about 20 people, of whom about half were old enthusiasts from previous years, among them Peter Hampton— NZU's only representative at the Empire Games last year.

The retiring club captain. Mr. Ian Tree, was in the chair and it was with regret that we accepted his statement that he could not stand for this year's captaincy, due to a change in occupation. At the nomination of Mr Free and with universal consent Tim Beaglehole was elected club captain for 1955. Other officers elected were:—
  • Vice-Captain: Allan Wllson.
  • Sec-Tres.: Diana Fussell.
  • Committee: Miss Jo Pyne, Messrs Tony Ellis, Chris Beeby, Dave Watson.

Tribute was paid to the club's president and coach Mr. N. St J. Dickson, who later spoke on the subject of fencing with particular reference to the coaching of juniors.

There were discussed several matters of considerable importance and interest. Closer relations with the Provincial and National Councils were advocated; Tournament grading was discussed, and a trip to Christchurch was hinted at.

It seems that there is an enjoyable season ahead of us, which we hope will terminate as successfully as last year's with a win at Otago in Winter Tournament.——A.A.T.E.
