    Czarnecki of Michigan

    Anyone know the fencers named Czarnecki who live in Michigan? An original press photo from the 1981 Detroit Free Press of a 7 1/2 year-old Arnold Czarnecki waiting to start fencing is being offered on eBay in case they're interested:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1981-Press-P...ht_2713wt_1014

    I see two fencers with that last name currently listed as USFA members but neither one has the first name of Arnold, so it doesn't look like the lesson took.

    There's a second press photo as well and it may help explain why Arnold didn't continue fencing:

    "Head shield" That's great.

    I fenced in Michigan for a few years and didn't know any Czarneckis but those are well before my time.

    A little bit a research shows a couple of Czarneckis at Liberty Lakes. I've sent an email with the link to their head guy to see if there is a connection.

    I know the Czarneckis from LLFC in Michigan but I don't have a contact number for them. They both fence foil.

    However the press release was for Czarneckil with an L at the end of his name.

    That seems to be a typo of the person who copied the photo caption glued to the back. The actual photo caption has the name without the "L" but with "II" (i.e., "the second") after the last name. Apparently misread the II to be an L when composing the eBay description.

    You're right. I just did a search in whitepages.com and found both father and son Arnold Czarnecki in Michigan.

    Wow, I should check the forums more often! I am one of the fencing Czarnecki's in Michigan. We started our adventures in fencing in 2008 and are having a blast. I just showed the picture to my hubby - no relation to him, as far as he knows. Thanks for the heads up, though.
