The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty,
understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system.
And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness,
egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire
the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
John Steinbeck novelist, Nobel laureate (1902-1968)
OSF has grown again. We remain at 24 NW 144 Circle, but we have opened the wall into the next room of our building. We now occupy about half of the building. This adds 970 square feet, enough for the 2 strips to be more useable, a larger strength training area, a family room, and office area. OSF now has 4200 square feet devoted to fencing - 6 strips with electronic scoring, strength training, and armoury. By moving the family seating and office to the new area, all 4 strips in the old area will be useable.

OSF has outgrown its original space in Memorial Road Plaza. During the summer of 2003 a new building was erected at 24 NW 144 Circle, Edmond, 73013. At the end of September we will move and open for classes on 29 September 2003 in the new building. The new site of OSF will have 2400 square feet of floor space, 4 full size fencing strips wired for electronic scoring, weight lifting area, armoury, office, and reception area.
