Mainly because i'm bored looking at that 'fencer arrested for carrying swords' thread.
Any banter leading up to the competition this weekend? Have Ireland got two teams this year? Welsh Women Epeeists? Will it just be gold and silver medals like last year? etc

The Northern Ireland "Barbarians" Student 5 Nations Team requires some fencers to compete this Saturday in the S5N2009 in Bristol.

if you are going to be about and without a team, or could make it, please let me know asap. We are currently looking for women fencers... of any weapon, and male epeeists. You don't have to be Northern Irish, just a student as of 2008/2009.

Many Thanks,

David Downey

In case anyone who isn't a student wants to come and watch, the Student 5 Nations 2009 is being held at Bristol University's Centre for Sport Exercise and Health on Tyndall Avenue, Bristol (There are maps and travel info on the Bristol University website www.bris.ac.uk) . Check-in is at 10am, fencing starts at 10.30am and is anticipated to finish at around 4.30pm.

We have some referees already, but if anyone else would like to volunteer we can give you an extremely cool free event t-shirt and will take you out for a slap-up meal afterwards! If you'd like more info, feel free to contact me either here or through facebook.

Does anyone know who took home the trophy after the 2007 Student 5 Nations?

Looks like they've walked off with it as I've heard it wasn't there last year. It cost a bit of money to get that and I'd say the guys who got the engravings on it would be pretty annoyed!

It was the Clarke Jackson McNamee trophy I think?

If my memory serves me correctly, then I am pretty sure a certain blonde scottish diva took the trophy all in 2007 after Scotland's rampant success.

Should be a fun weekend and the prospect of free stuff makes it even better! :p

:D Cymru am byth!! :D

From what I remember, they are sitting in Edinburgh University's trophy stand as that is where we put them. I will have a ask around though. Hope it goes well this weekend (obviously that means that I hope Scotland WIN!!!)
