Well that was some tournament: Marshal says it “blew up” from about 30 preregistrations to 49 in less than a week. And then two refs had to scratch, so they had a helluva scramble to have enough refs and organize the event. I stepped in to do the Bout Committee scutwork so Marshal and Helen could ref and make the important decisions.
Fortunately, the preliminary events (youth and women) finished on time so we didn’t have to make any adjustments for open competitors who were still
Saturday myself and 2 of my fencing buddies traveled out to San Berdoo for their 3W Open. My first Open actually.
Saturday bright and early we leave OC, myself and my friend I'll call Shaggy (because he kind of looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo) are car pooling.

Marie: Once I adjusted my distance, I was able to score 1 or 2 opposition-4 hits.
I haven't been posting much, because things have been busy and my mind has been other things. I was on winter break from school, which you'd think would be a time for me to relax, but instead it's usually the only time I have both the inclination and the time to tackle things like going through some of the things in the basement (my mother's things, my daughter's things, plus our own stored stuff) and wading through the clothes in my closets. Except for outings to the gym to lift and do aerobic,
