    I think Yuki is a really strong foilist and I wouldn't be surprised if she took 2nd!

    I wish I could come, but there's no way I'm spending all the money to fly down just to have the honor of paying $70 for it. No f***ing way.

    Walk? Train? Hide in the luggage of a fellow San Fransiscan? I'm sure a few Halbersctadt are going, hide in their luggage.

    WE is not really unpredictable.

    Marsh, Mummery, Ambort, Vie, Selter, definitely. Alegre and any of the other girls from LAIFC (Gegan) will very likely round out the make top 8, as well.

    I predict that local Fry's will have a sale!
    When you have three Romulan Warbirds blocking the escape route, Worf has an emotional breakdown about his childhood toy, Riker announces he's gay, Data's positronic brain gets a virus, and Geordi quits because he's had just one too many imminent warp core breach.... Just sit back, breathe, and follow these simple steps:

    Use the Shift key, people! Keyboard manufacturers everywhere are ineffably saddened when you ignore what they made just for you!

    I can see her making the top 4, I don't think Hiriyama is healthy enough to make the 4.

    Merz is always a possibility. I recognize a couple other names, but from refereeing youth events - I'll still go with age and treachery this year..

    Was there no deal for women doing both Womens and Mixed events? I see a number of the stronger women just registered for the Mixed event.

    Agreed. Its my privilege to fence Ms. Ostatnigrosh at my club on a regular basis. She makes it look easy, and touches so precisely that you hardly know it until the light goes off. My money's on her to take 1st.
    Passion is to be encouraged. Rudeness is unacceptable.

    Douglas in the top 4, a bold prediction. What is annoying is that the As can't be bothered to show up.
