The club will be open as normally scheduled on Tuesday 3/13/2018.

Reminder: Weather-related closings announcements

posted Mar 12, 2018, 11:37 AM by Taro Yamashita   [ updated Mar 12, 2018, 11:37 AM ]

A reminder of how emergency/weather-related closings at the club will be announced, in FAQ format:
  • Will Riverside Fencing Club be closed when the local (Hadley) Schools are closed?
    • Not necessarily. However, we have no direct link to the Hadley Schools, so our operations do not depend on them.
  • When will you post that Riverside Fencing Club is closed?
    • No later than 1:00pm on the day in question.
  • If there is no notice, what should we assume?
    • If there is no posting about a closing, please assume that there WILL be fencing.
  • Where will you post notices?
    • I will post notices in three places:
      • Via email. I will post to this email list. Please check your email.
      • On our official web site: www.RiversideFencingClub.com.
      • On our Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/Riverside.Fencing.Club/
I have to make the call based on the weather conditions near the club. If, at any time, you feel that the travel conditions near where you live are too dangerous for you to come out, please stay home, safe.

Thank you.

Head Coach, Owner

Club Open Mon 3/12/2018

posted Mar 12, 2018, 7:40 AM by Taro Yamashita   [ updated Mar 12, 2018, 7:42 AM ]

The club will be open Monday 3/12/2018 as normally scheduled.

There is a winter storm warning in effect Monday night into Tuesday evening. However, since the storm warning does not go into effect until AFTER the Monday schedule of fencing, we expect no weather-related issues. However, please use your own best judgment as to whether you can travel safely to and from the club.

We will see what the situation is like for Tuesday 3/13/2018 as the time draws nearer and we have a better sense of the storm situation.
