27th April : Our contribution to the "Active School Week 2016" at Carnmore National School
The next generation...... !?!

For their "Active School Week" the children voted "fencing" pretty high on their wish list. So when teacher Yvonne contacted us we couldn`t resist : Six fencers (incl. coach) of the CFC were proud to present this challenging sport in front of the pupils. Really good fun !

A little warm up lesson for the presenting fencers....

...and then of course a few explanations in terms of the weapons, the rules, the equipment ....

 ..... the footwork.

 Everybody had a chance to take a weapon in hands.

But after watching a few fights - here Bart on the left and Saoirse on the right....

or Dominique on the left and Dora on the right ...

there was a chance for the brave to go into a first lesson with Rainer the coach :

Just great to meet these talents - leading us to the warm and cosy feeling that there will be a bright future for fencing sports in the West ! 
A real pleasure for us - thanks a lot again for this opportunity to the Carnmore NS !
