The Nevada County Fencing Club announces the retirement of its longtime instructor, Keith Hurrell.

At age 86, Keith has been fencing since 1958 and has taught at this club since 2003. He has inspired many students to learn this traditional sport over the years. The club will be welcoming Wally Oliver, who will take his place as the intermediate/advanced instructor. A retirement party/open fencing/open house will be held in Keith’s honor Saturday, from 2-4 p.m., at the Grass Valley Veteran’s Memorial Building, 255 S. Auburn St, in Grass Valley. Visitors are welcome, and former students are invited to come fence and celebrate. Light refreshments will be served. R.S.V.P is appreciated to 530-432-1750 or loriw@oro.net. The club will also begin its fall/winter session on Monday. There will be eight weeks of class instruction for $60. All equipment is provided.
