    BIG pile o' gear

    At the Z Fencing sabre tourney in Pasadena today (right now, in fact).

    Looks like Everest Base Camp...all that's missing are the sherpas.

    Need fencing equipment? See me at H.O.M. Fencing Supply

    Going to your first tournament? Read "Choose yer weapon, Laddie (or: Dude, where's my foil?)"

    OK...you can ignore my posts in this thread, kind of like what we all do with certain others' posts as a rule. I was getting a strange message about moderator review on my posts earlier, so I just wanted to test my ability to post.

    Thats NOTHING. You should have seen the bag pile weekend before last at the AFF #1 circuit comp in Melbourne on Saturday. 70 odd male epeeists, plus 30 odd female epeeists, almost ALL with wheeled bags. It was like grand central station.
    Theses are evil....VERY evil, someone rescue me pls!

    Seriously though, that really isn't a very big pile of gear.

    I'd go so far as to contest the assertion that what's pictured even technically qualifies as a pile at all.

    I'm just glad the weather was nice...it was raining the previous day, and since I had to set up outside, it could've been miserable if the rain had continued (not to mention all those bags would've gotten soaked)

    Yes, I believe I was. Craig mentioned that. I've been posting less than I used to over the last several months, which probably makes poor grammar posters, fnetters who dislike sarcasm and Purple happy. I don't remember what I posted in Rules, but given that I can't find my post, whoever moderates it probably decided that my thought wasn't worthy. That doesn't surprise me. If I moderated Rules, I would discount my attempted post with prejudice.

    I don't remember having problems with your posts. Tel and Mr. Epee, yes...but you...no.

    In general, once a thread in the rules forum has been answered, subsequent posts are only going to be approved if they contribute significantly to the topic. Also, pay attention to the style of the posts that are being approved. We're trying very hard to only include useful information and not digressions or incomplete answers.

    If you Enhance the picture enough I think you can maybe see one bag on top of another in the background, in the shadow. That's a prerequisite for a pile to me.

    Cool! Here's a picture of a pile of luggage I found on the internet.
    610x.jpg

    (I assume this is the thread for random and meaningless pictures of bags. Of course, if the rule is that we should start a new thread for each picture, I'd like to offer my apologies and ask the moderators to just make this post a new thread, please.)
