Volunteers needed for Australian Junior Fencing Championships

Canteen Helpers Needed 

This year the Queensland Fencing Association secured hosting rights to the Junior National Championships. This is a great opportunity to raise funds for Queensland fencing by running a canteen over the four days of the competition. A canteen stocked with healthy food options is also a great service to our interstate visitors, many of whom will not have access to commercial food outlets.

Can you help?

If you can commit a few hours on one or more days of competition to serve at canteen, or maybe provide some home cooked goodies to sell, please contact:
