What happened to those?

For anyone who is not aware, a representative for each weapon in the UK was selected/voted in at the beginning of the season.

Since then, I haven't heard anything about it.

Best to check with the representative for your weapon. The representatives are meant to meet regularly and they elect from amongst themselves a fencer to attend Board Meetings, though there is not always a rep. there.

Fencers should keep in touch with the person they elect and ask them to report - say at a competition.;)

Yet again great organisation.

Hhhhmmmm, it is a bit "relaxed".

With 6 reps, am surprised that there can't be someone at each board meeting. My guess is the reps should provide feedback to the fencers, rather than need to be asked to provide feedback.

Any idea if this initiative is active in any respect at all in any weapon?

I believe the WE rep is Jo Beadsworth, and MS is James Williams. MF might be James Beevers, but I'm not really sure. read it in the Sword somewhere I think, a qucik e-mail to the BFA will confirm....

Yes, Doobarz, I believe you are right. Women's Foil is Camy and Women's Sabre is Charlotte Brown (although not sure if anyone has taken over from her since she has retired). Have no idea who the Men's Epee Rep is...
