About Our Club
We are one of the northern-most official USFA (United States Fencing Association) fening clubs in Michigan. Who owns the club? It's simple, we all own the club. The Club is simply a cooperative in which we all pay for membership and practices so that we have a place to fence. It's important to share this so that everyone knows what they pay goes directly to keeping the lights on and the doors open. Thank you to everyone who participates because it means we all get to fence!
