Updated Coach's Page!

Josh Karausky finally has a bio on our coach's page! Check it out!

And don't forget, Wednesday practices belong to him, so you can pay him a visit (and fence with him!) in person every Wednesday evening from 6pm-9pm.

Club Dues- Very important!

Hey folks, if you paid your club dues with a check in June, it will not be cashed. The account was frozen when coach Murphy passed away. If you get a chance re-write a new check or pay cash to Brendon Beatty. En Garde is currently in the process of re-vamping it's program and hopefully everything will be straightened out by August. Sorry for the inconvenience, thanks again.

- B

Shoot the club an email if you have any concerns/questions.

*note* This only applies to those of you that made checks out to "Murphy's En Garde Fencing Club". If you paid with cash or already paid your dues to Brendon, you're ok.

Etna Open Streets- June 25th

Pay a visit to Etna this Saturday (the 25th) for the Open Streets Event! En Garde is joining with other local businesses to show off all the totally awesome things this end of town has to offer.

The club will still be open! So if you're not into fencing with a balloon on your head, you can get your regular practice in upstairs.

See you all Saturday!

Rest in Peace, Coach Murphy

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Coach Charles Murphy.  His impact on the Pittsburgh fencing community over the course of his long career as a fencer and a coach cannot adequately be put into words.  On the opposite end of the strip or on one's own, Coach Murphy represented so much of what our sport teaches and nurtures: discipline, competitive drive, honor, and more.

The coaches and students of En Garde extend our sincere and heartfelt sympathy to Coach Murphy's family and friends even as we ourselves join them in mourning his passing.

We invite you to gather with us tomorrow evening, June 6th, starting at 6 p.m. at En Garde Fencing Club, where we will meet in lieu of our regularly scheduled practice to remember Coach Murphy and the great influence he had in all our lives.
