    So is anybody going, or am I to be all alone?

    I'm going to be doing u17 foil, and with any luck will make the 'A' team for Victoria, or at least, that's my aim; though it could be iffy since this year is the first time I've done nationals of any sort. Not to mention I've only been fencing for a little over 2 years.

    Well it won't be at the u17s, this is the last year I can do it.

    Speaking of which, I really need to go back to the PBT site, I'm in need a new lame, and fast. (Don't you love when you miss a few days and suddenly find out all your fees are overdue and your equipment is in need of a replacement!)

    Whats the cost of PBT like? Bearable? What would a new named lame cost ya?

    I saw that Aladdin Sports(Uhlmann distributor in AUS) website - I wouldn't pay money like that.

    Well a custom sized INOX (washable) lame is 85 Euro, or roughly $160 Australian. I think that names are done by independant companies, not by the makers - though you coulds probably get them to do it for you.

    i seem to recall all the boys have always stayed at parramatta for cadets.

    Are the girls staying at the usual flat/apartments in Lidcombe?
