    Hope you plan on joining us on Tuesday, June 26 at the Fencing Masters: Kick-Off to London at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC! www.fencingmastersnyc.com

    It will be really special night of fencing and a celebration of the 2012 US Olympic Fencing Team.

    We'll be providing grants to Olympic athletes and proceeds are going to support my foundation Fencing-in-the-Schools (501c3) which will bring fencing to inner-city schools following the London Olympics.

    It will also be televised and we've got some great surprises in store!

    Thanks for your support and stay tuned!
    Tim

    This promotional video is confusing. Really confusing.

    The video is heavily built around a song about 'coming home' in a promotional video for an event in NYC, contested by fencers from across the US, who are going to compete in an event in London. I really like the event concept, but this promotional video doesn't make sense.

    Looks cool, sounds cool, but doesn't makes sense.

    I doubt it'll keep anybody away.

    On a more comedic note, you're promoting a fundraiser with a song by a band named 'Dirty Money'?

    Er,

    Just showed this video to Rouva Kalpa. She thought it was great and wasn't confused at all.

    She's much cooler than I, and hip to the beat.

    I, on the other hand, specialize in paralysis by analysis.

    I hereby amend my complaint, no Men's Epee footage? How dare you.

    I am old enough to remember when TV went off the air at night, and the test patterns which were broadcast then. I suggest that this actually would be more a more interesting addition to the video than "Men's Epee footage". :D
