I'm just curious who We Vets actually are ...... Age Group; Gender; Location; Weapons Fenced; Fencing Experience; Etc. As for me: 55+; Male; California; Epee; Introduced to Fencing in college during the mid-80's, then drifted away as career took priority. Started again in 2006, did a little competing, and stopped again in 2010 when minor physical issues began to affect my work. Started again a year and a half ago when I retired, and have competed a few times. Great fun and source and motivation to stay fit.
