  1. New eyes

    by , 05-25-2015 at 03:33 PM
    Wow it has been a while since I last wrote something in here. To say that I have been busy with everything but fencing is an understatement, but such as life. Time to focus on next season and set some goals that are awesome, but that is for a different entry. This one is about my new eyes. For years I have been wearing glasses under my mask and from time to time I have considered contacts or spoke to others that wear glasses and looked at the sports goggles. After long thought, I got fitted for ...
  2. Notes 17 May 2015 – Need a date..

    One would think because University is finished for the year, my Thursdays are free. Nope .. It’s now Garden Season. That means any available evening, spouse is over at the Church working in their garden. She’s working on our veggie bed, the Church’s flower-bed or in the Food Bank beds. And if she’s not at the Church, she’s in the 12x12 veggie-bed at home. She calls it Garden Therapy and keeps her happy.

    Tuesday nights are reserved for me to go fence at the Y. Last week I worked on ...
  3. Counter 6, counter 6, counter 6

    The hamstring is in the sore stage of healing, so it was good that last night's vet class was all bladework instead of footwork. We did counter 6, we did counter 6, and we did more counter 6. If there were kids in the class, they wouldn't have stood for it, but the focused work suits adults very well.

    I use the 6 a lot, but often I find myself losing the opponent's blade as I parry. The answer is the same as the answer to just about every other fencing problem: smaller movement, ...

  4. Philly Cup

    by , 05-04-2015 at 09:27 PM
    Philly Cup finals were on Sunday. There were 11 epees registered; in doing my pre-tournament homework, I had a pretty good idea of what the pools would be since seeding was based on point standings, and since there were no scratches or no-shows, it cane out just as expected. jkormann got the interesting pool. I was going to say I got the tough one, but both pools were tough: 9 out of the 11 entrants were rated, and high enough we could have had a B1 if there were enough bodies.

  5. Notes 4 May 2015 : Philly Cup

    by , 05-04-2015 at 08:36 PM
    I’ve missed the prior Philly Cups due to other commitments. I had this on the calendar before the email, preventing a scheduling problem. The registrations for foil was fluctuating the night before the event, so I emailed Marshal to see if it was still on. If I don’t have to wake up at 6am on a weekend, I won’t. He replied it was still running.

    I got there as Thunder arrived to run the event. We set-up ...
