Following a significant amount of work, research and coordination, Malagentia has resumed fencing practices, which will remain outdoors for the interim.
All are invited to attend, regardless of experience levels. Non-participant assistance is also welcome, to help monitor adherence to our protocols.
When: Saturdays, 10-noon, weekly. Rain Cancels; please see calendar at https://malagentia.eastkingdom.org/main for latest info, including possible rain date.
Where: Ft. Williams, Cape Elizabeth – 1000 Shore Road. As you enter the park, drive to the right, and attempt to park in the lot up the hill on your right. Goal will be to practice up that hill, past the big picnic shelter. If occupied, we will grab another location. (there may parking fees; come prepared to pay.)
Notes: Please approach practice wearing a respiratory mask, and sign-in.
There will be no loaner gear, without prior arrangement.
