West Chester (PA) Area YMCA hosted the First Brandywine Valley Invitational at the West Chester YPC and it was a success. There were 16 students from three local clubs attending: West Chester YPC, West Chester Brandywine and a local charter school.* The foil event was held with 5-touch pools decided DE order. Dry weapons were used for pools and the first two rounds of DE. Electrics were used for the last two rounds of DE, they were also the only 15-touch bouts. Remarkably, we finished in three hours! Many thanks to the YMCA staff, participants and especially to our Guest Directors and scoring machine suppliers: Mike H. from WCU and paprov! * YMCA of the Brandywine Valley has multiple branches: Youth Program Center (YPC) and Brandywine are two of them.
