Anyone going?

It's going to be my first open! (unless you're counting SE regionals and BYCs... but I didn't think they were 'opens')

I'm looking forward to it! Yay! (*does a little 'happy to go to an open' dance*)

No, am in Athens at the time.

You are right, SE Regional Age Groups and BYCs are not Opens - since they are not "open" to everyone to enter (although Opens son't allow U13s to compete....).

Have fun and good luck. If you have the "Open" bug, will be at Birmingham :)

i'll be doing the edinburgh international... so i won't be at invicta

Invicta seems to be, like Merseyside, one of those competitions that I'm always doomed to miss - Achilles tendon. Anyway my form is so awful at the momnet that it wasn't worth entering Edinburgh.

I'll see you there.

also the same weekend as edinburgh open, so a 9 hour drive over the border that wekend.
Good luck to all at the invicta open.

I've talked one of the girls from my club (the only other with breeches and a BFA membership) into coming. Yay!

Can't wait!!!

I think I'll make it to the Invicta as well, not really good enough for the Edinburgh comps I dont think, plus its a hell of a long way to go to get no points :)

I'll be going with son, husband and other epeeist on the Saturday. Hopefully some of our foilists, Hokers and a couple of other sabruers are also going.

Son, daughter and hubby did well at Nottingham, Hokers.
Son got l8, daughter l4 and hubby l16! Don't know what the NIFF was but John Salfield won the sabre.

Yeah I had a look at the guildford site, good results all round! Well done. That should bump the rankings up a fair bit.

I couldnt really have fenced, my arm is still too bruised, so was fortunate I didnt go.

results anyone?

-15th March 2004, 13:15
I thought the sabre was Sunday, so couldnt go in the end. That'll teach me to check in advance properly... :(

Naughty foilist

Me and t'other half were sorry you couldn't make it Hokers, but he'll fill you in, possibly blow by blow, at Kingston tomorrow. He got another three lefties in his poule of eight!

All in all it was a well run weekend. With over 100 in the mens epee it went very smoothly and with only one small hitch on the sunbday the foil was a great. Well worth the long drive.

Oooppsss, sorry - the joys of "copy & paste" (especially if don't check that it has pasted properly afterwards...) *sigh*

oooh big entry for the mens epee, and a reasonable nif too by the looks of things.
Some very strange results though will have to find out what happened as the Last 8 certainly wasn't made up of the people i thought it would be!
Oh and Chris I know you're out there, could you possibly leave a few cups for the Brits to pick up! its not nice hoarding them all to yourself ;)

Actually a good set of reults for the Streatham contingent.
