    Pretty much that. I had a Sunday morning free and signed up for a DVFC DIII Foil. At first, there were 3 rated fencers who showed, but they dropped off leaving 10 U-rating. The new GPS maps showed me a quicker way to the club, which is always welcome.

The registrations for foil was fluctuating the night before the event, so I emailed Marshal to see if it was still on. If I dont have to wake up at 6am on a weekend, I wont. He replied it was still running.
