Dues and Fees Effective July 1, 2013:


Membership dues - due at the beginning of the month:

  • Monthly: $25 for one fencer, immediate family members are an additional $5 each

  • Floor fees for non-members: $10 per visit


Equipment rental: $30 per month, fencer takes possession of a mask and jacket

  • Equipment rental fees are due every month the fencer has possession of the equipment, whether any practices have been attended or not

  • Equipment must be returned in reasonable condition. If equipment is lost or is deemed unreturnable, the fencer is responsible for paying half of the replacement cost of new equipment. Equipment rental fees do not apply in any way towards ownership of the equipment (or to the replacement fee if necessary).

  • Foil rewire:  $10/blade only, $12/complete foil

  • Epee rewire:  $12/blade only, $15/complete epee

  • Rewires include wire only, other parts are extra if needed

  • Cut tang down for pistol grip: $2. Includes rethreading tang if needed.


Purchasing new equipment:

  • Orders are generally done on the first Wednesday of the month

  • The vendor is Absolute Fencing although we may also order from Fencing.net from time to time if the need/interest is there

  • Your cost is the catalog price of the items you're ordering, no shipping or handling

  • Payment is due at the time you place the order (either turn in payment at the club or pay online)

  • Equipment should be picked up within one month of being ordered. Equipment that is not picked up may be charged a $5 per month storage fee, due upon claiming the equipment. Equipment not picked up after six months becomes property of the club (no payment or refund will be given as the equipment will be considered abandoned).
