Tournaments, Fall 2012

Hello everyone!

This month BUFC competed in two tournaments, “The Big One” at Smith College and NFC 1 at MIT in Cambridge. Everyone should be proud of how hard they have worked this semester, especially those who started fencing for the first time this school year.

The next NFCs and Nationals in the spring will be here before you know it!

In the meantime, check out the results of the Big One here
and pictures from the tournaments here


The Road to Nationals and The Big One

Greetings current fencers, alumni and those interested in our club!

It has been a while since we have made a post, but we thought we would update all of you on the current happenings with the BUFC. But first to reintroduce myself, my name is Ralph Conserva. I am a senior in the School of Management and also the President of our fencing club. Today we will share some exciting pieces of news, as well as some updates on the club this year.

Firstly, our annual Fall Invitational tournament, more commonly known as “The Big One,” is only a few days away! This Saturday, we will be sending a group of 39 fencers to Smith College to compete, with even more new fencers accompanying us on our journey this season. We will be sure to update the site with our results after the competition.

We have also started looking to the future, with our deposit already down to travel to Michigan State for nationals next year in April. This will be the furthest our club has ever traveled for any tournament so it should prove to be an important milestone in our history.

With seven tournaments planned out for the year (all of which can be seen in our Tournaments section), the club is excited for a jam packed and thrilling season. Thank you for stopping by and visit again soon for more updates! We will try our best to post more than once every six months.


Piecing Together Our History

Cheers from London!

This semester for the BUFC has been quite an exciting one, especially for a spectator like me watching and hearing about our results from Europe. It is all about to get even more thrilling as my fellow team mates compete at our annual club nationals tournament this coming weekend.

One of our current side projects is to piece together our history and alumni base for our club. As we continue to conduct research and dig up anything that could help us with this project, we have also created a LinkedIn group. The link can be found here:

If you are a user of LinkedIn and would like to reconnect with past fencers, please request to join and let us know the years you fenced with the BUFC, what weapon you were, any positions you held and specific accomplishments made by the team during your years with the club. We would really appreciate your help.

Once again, good luck to my fellow team mates this coming weekend. Go Terriers!


Club Newsletter

I hope everyone is having a good break! Here is the first edition of the BUFC newsletter, created by yours truly and David Marulanda.  If you guys have any suggestions or want to help with the next one, let us know.

See you in a couple weeks!

Big One Recap and Treasurer for Next Year


Our Big One results are posted in our “Tournaments” section and I just wanted to congratulate everyone on a job well done, especially all of our new fencers. We do it all over again next week at our first Northeast Fencing Conference meet at the University of New Hampshire, so get excited.

In other news, congratulations to Arielle Sharma who will be our new treasurer for next semester! Looking forward to seeing what fundraising efforts we will have in the coming year!

See everyone at practice!


The Big One

Hey Fencers!

Our first tournament of the year, The Big One, is coming up on Saturday, November 5th. The only limits on the number of people we can take to this tournament are the number of spaces in the vans! Remember to sign up on the sheets in the closet by Wednesday if you are interested.



Hey everyone!

SPLASH is coming up in just about a month (September 4th) and we are getting excited! To our returning members- try to come and recruit if you can. We’ll be handing out fliers with meeting times. To anyone else interested, see you there!
