Class schedule update for SHMS

After experimenting a while with having one hour of Fiore and one hour of rapier training on wednesdays we have, for now, come to the conclusion that it is better to instead have the good old 1,5 hours of Rapier and then free training.

The new schedule is effective starting from tomorrow, 25th of May 2016.

Google calendar has been updated to reflect the new schedule.

SHMS statement regarding training and seminar fees

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on SHMS statement regarding training and seminar fees
Mar 082016
 

In 2014 we (the SHMS board) decided to raise the training fees. The yearly membership cost stayed the same. As a compensation we decided that internal one day or shorter seminars are free in the future. There are about ten such seminars per year, and they are free as a compensation for paying the training fees. We have been unclear about this in some seminar announcements. In the future we shall clearly state “free for members when the training fee is paid”. The yearly membership fee is mandatory for all members that want to train according to the member training fees. Non-members and members that have not paid the yearly fee will be charged separately (considered case-by-case) for training, seminars and other events. The 10-time training card cannot be used for seminar payment. The 10-time training card is intended only for normal training, as an ease for those members that cannot train very actively.

Toissa vuonna päätettiin korottaa harjoitusmaksuja. Vuotuinen jäsenmaksu pysyi ennallaan. Tällöin kompensaationa päätettiin, että sisäiset päivän mittaiset tai lyhyemmät seminaarit ovat tulevaisuudessa ilmaisia. Näitä seminaareja on noin kymmenkunta vuodessa. Eli tämä oli tarkoitettu hyvitykseksi korotetuista kausittaisista treenimaksuista. Olemme ilmaisseet tämän asian epäselvästi seminaari-ilmoituksissa. Tulevaisuudessa teemme ilmoituksen täsmällisemmin ” Free for members when the training fee is paid”. Vuotuinen jäsenmaksu on pakollinen kaikille jäsenille jotka haluavat treenata seuran jäsenhinnoittelun mukaan. Seuran ulkopuolisilta treenimaksuja sekä seminaari- ja muita tapahtumamaksuja veloitetaan tapauskohtaisesti. 10 kerran harjoituskortti ei käy seminaarimaksujen maksamiseen. 10 kerran kortti on tarkoitettu tavalliseen harjoitteluun helpottamaan niitä jäseniä jotka eivät pysty harjoittelemaan kovin aktiivisesti.
