Introducing our New Ring Master

The Saskatchewan Fencing Association has been limping  along without an Office Manager for over a year (thanks to the dedication of our past three presidents (Pat, Brian and Brian) and their equally dedicated Board.  But at long-last our tired-out volunteers can rejoice:  a new Office Manager has been hired, and she starts today!

New Office Manager for SFA

Marcia hard a work Day 1

Welcome to Marcia Coulic-Salahub of Prince Albert.  Some of you may recognize Marcia (pronounced Mar-SEE-ah) from some of the many tournaments of the past 8 years, rooting for and cheering on her now 16 year old son Stephaan.  A fencing mom extraordinaire, she’s also worked closely with our own coach extraordinaire Lynn Seguin in building up the Prince Albert Northern Knights Fencing Club, from a struggling tiny club, to a robust and member-filled entity.

While she started out “just trying to help out” – Marcia has since acted as the Club’s President for the past four years, and even played double duty as the Club’s Treasurer for a while, and triple duty as an assistant coach to Lynn when the need arose. (A role she’s loved so much she’s even toying with the idea of getting some coaching certification under her belt!).

Today we extend a big warm welcome to Marcia in her newest fencing role – that of our Ring Master.  It won’t be an easy job, with so many voices across the Province each with their own perspective.  It’s a tough job to balance the needs and wants as such a diverse group as ours, but considering she has three boys at home (husband Harold, teenaged Stephaan, and cutey patootie Jeremy (age 6)), she’s already well-versed in seeing to the needs of a diverse group!

Here’s a few words from Marcia herself as she starts her new role today from her home office in Prince Albert:

” I look forward to working with all of you to create a fantastic organization for everyone who has fallen in love with fencing.  If you have any questions or would like to drop me a line, I can be reached at mcoulic@sasktel.net or phone me at the SFA office 306-975-0823.”

Welcome Marcia!  We’re looking forward to seeing some of the great things you can do with our particular Fencing Circus!
