CAMA has been chosen to host the next European Canne de Combat Championships in September 2010.
The competition will run over 2 days at the Leys Sports Complex, and we expect to see the top European Cannists in action there. We are beginning to plan for this event – we hope many members will want to be involved – if you are willing to volunteer in any capacity, please contact Senior Instructor Julie Gabriel . We are also looking for sponsors/partners, so if you have any ideas, please let us know.
