Whos entering girly sabre at the scottish student beginners comp next weekend?

Without the discounted membership - I imagine entrants will be like gold dust!

Remember folks... keep 'em clean.

I hopefully am. Only just found out the deadline has been moved for entries so I don't know if I can still make it!
If so, foil and sabre I think (haven't fenced epee in a while and seemed to be a bit better on sabre lately.)

Hi guys,

Not such a bad event... except they tried to con me out of my referee wine. Don't worry forlks - i sorted them out, and got a nice bottle of white.

Anybody got any results?

What kind of results are requested? :D

MTF - who were you? :D

TTF - unlucky in sabre - would have liked to have stayed and tried to even out the cheerleading imbalance, but we had a train to catch

Fun weekend overall. Thankfully I think I have more injuries from carrying my kitbag than from fencing, and I managed to resist the temptation of blowing more of my student loan on a pretty blue lame.

Very enjoyable event overall. Day 1 I fenced Men's Foil. Won 1 poule match, plus a pre-DE match before getting comprehensively defeated in the L32.

Today I was in Men's Sabre and won a bronze medal! Yaay! :)

Was a fun time in Glasgow - went along to help our beginners out and preside a few matches - good to see the standard of fencing is good at beginners.

The Men's foil was good - the richard wilbraham school of flunging was in evidence too :tongue: - tho getting clonked around the head with a foil whilst presiding wasnt that much fun!

Didnt see much of the WE or WS, but day two's MS was good (never preside whilst hungover) and the WF that i presided was all good - the semi a great match!

all in all - a good competition!

Ouch! I know the poles got hit by my opponent a couple of times in a sabre match, but that is really....ouch!

Anyone remember where the ME finalists were from?

I have to be honest that I was watching the girlie foil final for almost all of that :D

Was a very good weekend, unfortunetly the Northern posse failed to achieve any decent results but was the first comp for some of them.

Only just caught up with my sleep loss, its really not good having 6 hours sleep all weekend going out drinking and driving over 300 miles. To top it off had to preside womens foil!! I reckon at the individuals people will remember this and make me do it again.

Such is life. Well done to everyone though.

:sleep:

Well, after getting wacked around the head on the saturday, I got elbowed in the same spot last night in the warm up game of basketball (that well-known non-contact sport) and landed in Ninewells Hospital A&E.

Im not allowed to fence for 2 weeks (possibly 2 months :( )

Anyone got any nurofen?

If anyone could persuade the organisers to send the results (or at lest top 8's into the SF email address for inclusion in the next Point that would be appreciated.

Can't you say top 9 so I can be in it? :(

Aer - our women's captain who was hell bent on making it at the weekend hasn't fenced since December. She went to Portugal for Xmas, got some kind of ear infection and can't fly back in case her ear drums explode! It's got to the stage she's taking up golf for something to do, so whatever happens, stay around fencing and don't sink to the level of trying another sport!

I'm quite scared that I probably know who all of you are now but just don't realise it!

I'm always glad to be of some help MTF whenever possible. Plus the free bottle of wine i get to give myself at the end of the day is always a bonus saying that so is helping the ladies!! :eyerise:
