This may have been done before, if so it doesn't hurt to reprise:
Refs should all look like the one at the end of the "Richard cruising" video clip on the LP video downloads site, and should be dressed the same ;) , oh my.

Do you have the link?

In the FIE tournaments the refs do wear uniforms. [Methinks the yellow jacket are "outstanding".]

In Cda, where the refs receive an honorarium, they're expected to wear the uniform: blue jacket, gray pants or skirts - the latter for the ladies, I guess if one is a Scot, a kilt is allowed - with shirt & tie for the men.

Click on the "Downloads" tab, click on the "Videos" icon, click on "Richard cruising" and by the way, cruising is not being used as in the accepted parlance of our cross atlantic cousins.

Wow, I didn't realise that we owned the domain .com and .co.uk and have mirror images on both.


Technically the site address you gave is wrong and does not work!! Also you will find that the address stays as www.leonpaul.co.uk whichever page of the site you are on.

If you use the .com site you will be able to give direct links to pages like this http://www.leonpaul.com/download/vidieo/videos_large_small/vids_from_national_champs/Krusing.AVI

Yep by the look of it the .co .uk site is a forwarding site to the .com one!

Only in the summer, I hope...

At the risk of catering to eugenics and being a sexist:
With some of the male refs, you do NOT want to see their spindly, shapeless, pale, hairy legs. Equally bad are the short, stumpy legs...

I've seen someone who looks like the Baron Hakonnon [spelling] - that guy who floats in the air - in the movie "Dune". You do NOT want to see him dressed like that to distract everyone in the gym from teh business at hand.

I presume you mean the original movie version of Dune and not the mini series.

Anyway, if the male refs looked like the one in the vid clip I'd have no probelm with that.:seesaw:

Never knew refs had to wear uniforms, but now I know they occasionally do. Who gets the job of telling them off if they don't?

most of the time when the ref is getting a per diem they're expected to be dressed appropriately.

most qualified refs know the expectations from them.

that said, having a ref who's not competing gives the fencers a modicum more of confidence in the refereeing. IOW, u can expect the dressed-up ref are more willing to card someone for offences than self-refing fencers - a matter of conflict of interest in the latter case.

off topic, but any idea where I could get a copy of the director's cut of Dune? Been vaguely looking for it for a few years, and the closest I got was a Japanese laser disc copy with the "buy" link broken. USA version is sometimes mentioned, but apparently it's only closing on 4 hours because they put so many bloody adverts in.

this, according to people in the film industry, is the best source of info re films.

there does not appear to be a Director's cut of Dune, according to IMBD.

'What are you like!' is a Yorkshireism - expressing disbelief/ amusement at something that has been said. Though I like your style posting a link to a photo...

Dragging this posting back on topic, I would say that in my experience, the FIE require its referees to be in the 'standard 'uniform of blazer,shirt, tie and trousers for the men and blazer/jacket, blouse, skirt/trousers for women. Incidentally if you look at our own FIE ref's you should note that the senior one's anyway alway's wear trainers, always outdoor shoes.
The referees that are selected for major events are sometimes issued with event blazers in different colours.These are also 'acceptable 'apparell for domestic events. If youve got it flaunt it!!!!!!!!

Should have read 'never' wear trainers!!!!!!!!!
