  1. Schedule Up for SN

    by , 02-17-2012 at 11:11 PM
    The age group events at SN are on the 30th of June and the IA is the 3rd of July, so I'll be spending a boatload on the hotel, as usual. I reserved the hotel room. Now I have other questions, which will doubtless be answered in the fullness of time:

    I can't find the qualification list for the I-A, but I finished 7th at the Charm City ROC so I am assuming I'm qualified.

    I don't know whether I should bother to do the I-A. Probably not. But I do want to go to Disneyland, ...
  2. Drill and leg work mostly

    Will, Jessi, and Mike went to the local tournament Sunday; Jessi was fencing left-handed because of the way Frederick bashed her hand, but she still almost beat Will in the 8, and Mike took Will out in the gold medal bout, so tonight they were all doing their best to beat one another. Jessi beat Will by one touch with Ahren refereeing, and the two of them were hilarious afterwards, Will asserting that he won when it mattered and Jessi pointing out that she did it left-handed.

    I'm ...
  3. You heard that, didn't you?

    I feel pretty good today. Just a few twinges here and there. Rare for the day after a tournament, especially for a tournament where I drove two hours each way, with seven hours spent at the venue.

    Mike, Jessi1, and Will told me they had a good time at the Liberty Fencing Club Sabre Open. Jessi was 5th, Will was 2nd, and Mike was 1st. The event went from a B to a D, unfortunately, so Mike couldn't re-up his B (he's down to a C these days, I think) Will beat Jessi by 1 touch ...
  4. Not knowing when to stop

    by , 02-12-2012 at 09:34 PM
    I motored down to the Baltimore Fencing Center for the Choco Therapy Open, as planned, and got there with plenty of time to spare. I warmed up with Brooke Sirico from DCFC, who is a nice fencer, and felt that even if that was the only bout I got with a woman it was worth it.

    The foil event was still in pools, though, and they finished up the pools and much of the DE's before they started the sabre. Jamie Met was there to referee, and he's a solid sabre ref, but that was it, and we ...

  5. She got legs

    by , 02-08-2012 at 09:42 PM
    I was exhausted, and working on very little sleep after a long day, but I fought off the drowsiness and braved the slushy snow to go to fencing. Bridget, Tim, qatet, Mike, Tom, and Jessi1 were there. Jake was fencing sabre too. I only fenced Bridget, Tim, and qatet before taking a lesson with Ahren. Because Bridget and Tim had to get going, I skipped my bosu ball workout and my video viewing and went straight into bouting. Apparently it has made a difference, because I was able to fence with ...
