The Spike or Victoria College Review 1936
The added interest in fencing this year is shown by the increased membership of the Club, and though the attendance at weekly practices has not been large it has been made up in enthusiasm.
This season a new system of coaching was introduced which did not involve the expense that has in past years proved a slight handicap. The arrangement has been that the senior members of the club should instruct new members, who could finish up with professional tuition if they so desired, and the system has proved quite satisfactory.
The season opened with a match against a team from the Younger Set Club. Though the club lost to the more experienced Younger Set team, it was a most enjoyable evening. The club has since fought a return match against the Younger Set, with greater success.
At the opening of the season, G. Bliss was elected Club Captain, but owing to a position which he has since taken he had unfortunately to resign, when his successor was elected.
The club is now in a position to provide adequate material for its members, especially those who do not feel inclined at first to purchase all that is necessary. Also the club intends to purchase at an early date some sabres, and all members are looking forward to this opportunity for the interesting and exciting sport of sabre-fighting.
