Riverside Fencing Club
Olympic style sport fencing for beginners to national champions
Emergency and Weather-related Closures
In case of inclement weather, or other emergency:
Members will receive an email; AND
We will post a notice on the club's web page (www.RiversideFencingClub.com) (This page); AND
We will post on the club's Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/Riverside.Fencing.Club).
We will do our best to put notices out by 1:00 PM on the day of a class at the latest, or at least 1.5 hours prior to the start of class in the case of classes that start earlier in the day.
If there is no notice, you may assume that the club will be open.
Note: we are not tied to school or other closures. If schools are closed for weather, we may still be open the same day.
Even if the club is open, in the case of inclement weather, decisions about whether to open the club or not are based on conditions near the club. Please use your own best judgment as to whether it is safe for you to travel between the club and your home.
