Sorry, the first set of results from today is for women's foil.

The results will be available shortly on the SUS website. A copy has now also been emailed out to all universities and Sports Unions (at least all the ones I have contacts for)

Looking forward to seeing you all next weekend at the SUS Individuals in Aberdeen!

Thank you to everyone who helped in the organisation and running of this event and to the host uni, St Andrews. Everyone did a great job!

A brief event report now available at the following link;


-16th February 2010, 00:32
Nine unis, 51 entrants. Now that is an impressive pair of stats!
I'm a tad worried though.
Please reassure me, Jen, that you will do everything in your power to dissuade this bumper crop of Student Fencers from entering any of the four remaining Scottish Opens!
As you are well aware, an influx of new blood is a bad thing!
Inflated NIF's will attract predatory fencers from south of the border who'll happily steal precious metals from respectable Scottish rate payers.
An increased demand for entries may fill up available places so rapidly that our time-honoured tradition of last-minute posting of participation may be capped!
Last, but not least, think about the catering implications. The planet has only a finite reserve of black-pudding and toasties!

And what's more, every single one of them is now an SF member.... most of them having taken out their membership just for this event :D I'll be encouraging them all to enter any competition they like and sincerely hope that this will boost the numbers at all the Scottish Opens.

Next event is the SUS Individuals in Aberdeen this weekend. Any last minute entries should be emailed in to scottishstudentfencing@hotmail.co.uk today! Remember these events are now also open to college students too so if you are a college student or you know any fencers who are college students in Scotland then please get in touch!

True to stereotypical form.....great new event, well run and popular, with load of new members, and still LBa58 finds half a dozen reasons to moan - typical jock!

HH, I think LifeBeginsat58's remarks were meant to be a tongue in cheek dig at another party, however I am choosing to focus on the positives that you have mentioned above.

This is not in fact a new event however we are now going to greater lengths to publicise student fencing and encourage our new batch of fencers and refs! Every fight from this event was independently reffed which helped the smooth running of the event massively, so a huge thank you to all of the referees.

If anyone would like to volunteer to referee next weekend in Aberdeen for the SUS Individuals please contact me at the email address in my previous post. I am happy to discuss our expenses policy with any volunteers, unfortunately due to our fairly tight budget we can only offer basic expenses. Any local Aberdonian fencers who are available to referee would be greatly recieved!

Guilty as charged HH and, almost, as Tongue-in-Cheek as wot U iz!
KBO Jen. Whatever, it is, you're doing- it's working!

Time marches on HH. Yesterday was my Sixty-first b'day. Today, I am in denial that I still qualify for birthdays.
Is this normal?

Happy B'day LBa58!! May you have many more - counting the rings in a cross-section, I'm not far behind you! And they get more and more precious as the years go by....

Let us oldies hope they don't change Radio 2 to be more suitable for the over-65's................just wait 5 or 10 years, and it will be!

Thank you HH for your kind birthday felicitations. Much appreciated.
As one who heard "Flowers in the Rain", the first song on Radio One, LIVE, I've witnessed many radiophonic evolutions. Now that I've attained a seniority that elevates dendrochronology over astrology, I'm eagerly awaiting the day when national radio is compulsed to sub-title all its output, including Music, and preferably using a bouncing ball prosthetic!
Quarter past three:)

Thank goodness that I resisted the temptation to say "More Bark than Bytes"
