Just using the link that Red kindly posted above.

Glueboy beat Maximilian Kindler 15/13 to get a well deserved 32 and a Junior World qualification if I'm not mistaken.

Congratulations James, Jon and all at Truro

Well done to all! I was going to go down and watch it, but unfortunately i'm stuck at the house with flu so decided against going out in the snow today! Where are the A Grades actually held in Budapest?

Kira L32 - qualified for worlds!:) no news about 32 yet
Angela in 64 - no news yet
Katie, Jess Davies L128

Is her qualification not dependent on whether Lignano is downgraded? i.e. that L32 won't count?

Regardless - L32 in Budapest AWESOME result xx

GKB
-6th January 2008, 21:38
No - Lignano had a high enough NIF to ensure she had more than 3000 points for her 32 there - as per the ranking and selection rules.

In the Sportcsarnok on Thokoly út.
If I remember right, get the no. 7 (red or green) bus to Baross Tér, then change onto the trolleybus, or bus, or walk, up Thokoly út, takes 5 mins on foot.

Wednesday afternoon squad training used to be there, so you may already know it.

Thanks Rory, that's not actually that far from Honved either. At least I know for when I go and watch the Senior one.

I've never been to the place, but i'd heard of it. :)

The WE event is at a place called Sportmax somewhere in deepest darkest Buda. Has anyone been there?

-8th January 2008, 21:57
There were lots of posters for the event in February - HUGE ones.....really interesting !!

Had a great 5 days - we stayed in a hotel at Barros ter (Boy with the squad when they arrived). Temps of -7 odd, -10 out in the country, wind only out in the country (and at the Keleti metro stop at Barros!). WHAT steep escalators !!!

madfencer
-8th January 2008, 23:42
PM1 - I think the Batthyany ter metro escalators are ridiculous too, although i'm sure they provide some fun for some chidren/drunks who fancy sliding down the handrails ;) ...and -10 is nothing for Feb...their record low is -35 for Feb. Was -7 when I went back to Guernsey on the 20th Dec..Brrrr.

The wind, snow and freezing temperatures made the visit to Memento Park all the more fun if poignant....deffo felt like I expect being in Siberia would feel (including nipped nose). Now have to work off all the fantastic food!!:eek:

I'd recommend a trip to Budapest to anyone, but starve for a month first :cool: I had no idea how amazing the architecture would be, how young in that sense Pest is and how old Buda, and what a phenomenal long and complex history the country has. Put my education to shame. Now looking for an appropriate book on history, and that cookery book....yum:D :D :D

Budapest has long been one of my favourite Cities! Defnitely worth a visit.

PM1 - you are so right - I thought I ate a fair amount and then came here - portions are ridiculous! Still, when you're doing fencing related stuff about 5 hours a day you need all that food!!

I love Budapest so much!

Finally found out from Ian Williams (the GBR sabbies are out here atm) that the Senior A Grade is (probably) held at the same place as the junior one this year. By Stadionnok metro station..walk with your back to Stadion hotel, then turn right and walk for a few minutes...then that's the venu...apparently.
