  1. Pittsburgh Day Three

    by , 12-06-2009 at 12:58 PM
    Today was the Division I, and with a B and no national points I was around the middle of the bottom. I had a good pool, with Sam Roberts and Tiki Kastor in it, so I knew I would get punished for any incorrect actions. I had Brad and a gentleman named, I think, [Stan, thank you Brad] for my referees, and both were excellent.

    I won one bout, got touches in all the others, didn't make the cut but wasn't at the bottom, and was very happy with my fencinng. I am not too stiff today, ...

  2. Pittsburgh Day Two

    by , 12-05-2009 at 09:38 PM
    We had a late close of check-in (4:00), so I went over in the morning and walked around and talked with people, doing some face-to-face business about refereeing and veterans business.

    I also shopped for a new FIE jacket, since my good one (which is old and faded, but not as old and faded as the old one I'm wearing while I look for my other jacket), has still not reappeared. I tried on the Leon Paul Team FIE in a 38 and told them I'd be back, so she held it for me. I looked at the ...

  3. Pittsburgh Day One

    by , 12-04-2009 at 10:37 PM
    Today was the Veteran Combined women's sabre. I'm staying in the Westin, and the breakfast was quite odd. The waitstaff mostly looked like the kind of guys who were more likely to be found on a football field, and about four people checked in with me before someone (a stocky young man) actually asked for my order. I asked for an egg-white omelet with broccoli, which was on the menu. He said I could have it with anything--mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, whatever I liked! And I could have the broccoli ...

  4. Monday night fencing

    by , 11-30-2009 at 10:38 PM
    I had a long and hectic day and barely made it to fencing, and when I got there only Tony was there and I wasn't sure it was worth it. However, Mike came soon afterwards, and then Kiersten, Tate, Donna, and a couple of others, so we had enough for a couple of strips. I fenced Mike, Kiersten, Donna, Tony, and one of the other guys who actually usually fences foil. Tony was back to being a jack-rabbit, and I thought it was because of Pittsburgh coming up but apparently he's not going. Kiersten ...

  5. Medeo veteran tournament

    by , 11-29-2009 at 05:11 PM
    When I saw that Medeo was hosting a veteran tournament a week before Pittsburgh, I had to go. It was a small but good-quality for a veteran event--Vince Paragano, Lisa Roqué, George Drukarov, Michael and Mary Malecki, and Robert Lombardi. I found to my surprise when I got there that Nickolay Logatchov from Denver is now at Medeo. Their gain, Colorado Fencing's loss, but I wish I knew what the story was. At any rate, it was nice to see him.

    It was a friendly tournament with a lot ...
