    Hi All,

    Is anyone going to be in Torun next week? I'm there all week and I'm just curious if anyone from the forum will be around. Look for the beardy Scottish bloke holding a camera.

    For the benefit of the those who feel challenged by the international fencing scene. Torun is where the Cadet & Junior World Championships will be held - next week.

    I didn't think this would need spelled out.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I looked it up because I wasn't sure, so posting for the benefit of others: Torun is in Poland.

    Since someone has started a generic thread for the Jr/Cdt Worlds, here are two links in case you want to bookmark them. The main page for the Championships with the schedule of events is
    https://www.fencingtorun2019.com/
    If you scroll down, there are links for live coverage and for results. If you're interested in just the results, the direct link is
    https://www.fencingtimelive.com/tournaments/eventSchedule/44AD391FF59A4D81A73936D4B1CAF5E3#today
    They've already posted the names of the initial entries but there are usually scratches and changes before the event begins.

    I have to say that the hall (judging by the site) looks really good. I'm told that the city is small but very very pretty and good to get around in. Can't wait to get there now.

    Well I'm having a good time in Poland and I've seen plenty of Americans fence. Still digging through my backlog of images but I've thrown up a couple of sets on insta.




    More to come.

    Found some pics of the US foil team in action against Russia (yes, I know).



    Got to this one late so unfortunately didn't get many images.

    Are you familiar to the American meeting invitation addendum "There will be cake"? Your portraitures are amazing! Have you submitted the baby pics to Gerber baby foods?

    On an aside, have any of you had a chance to try out the BF Blacks that are on sale? Would like to know a bit about them/pricing etc.
