  1. Lioness! (Strath Haven 1/11)

    by , 01-14-2015 at 09:19 PM
    As JKormann said, I fenced Pixie’s event Sunday, even though I still wasn’t fully recovered from this cold. But after I suggested this would be a good spot for Lioness to compete and she decided to sign up, there was no question about going. JK was sympathetic, but I had to report that I was up to around 90 percent: a lot less crud in my chest, and my knees finally stopped hurting from last week’s hockey games, but I was still winded at the end of three minutes.

    Pools went well. I came out placed 1st in my pool. The only loss was to Andrew Stein, who came in 3T. Closest was against Zebra, who I’d face in the DE. Brian is a good fencing-friend and it is always a pleasure to fence him. His switch to left, threw me, but I adapted. Our pool had no dedicated Ref, but we had two rated Refs in ...

    I wasn’t fully over the cold that I came down with Christmas Eve, but I went ahead and fenced the E & under at Modern Duelists.

  5. Random Frustration for an E1

    by , 01-07-2015 at 04:12 PM
    A local club, The Panthers, is having an E & Under epee this Sunday: https://askfred.net/Events/whoIsComi...d=28606#113335.
    -- Great!

    There are over 15 fencers.
    -- Great!

    I'm the only rated fencer, meaning it's still an E1.
    -- Argh!
