    What will this achieve, though? Yes, numbers will be up, but the quality of the fencing will go down. It won't give the top fencers more experience fencing tougher opponents. Nor will it encourage...

    Obviously there are exceptions and getting more fencers fencing at university is a...

    Trying to use glasses with a fencing mask was a major contributing factor in my decision to sort myself out with contact lenses. I find the combination a real pain.

    This may be obvious, but I for one would like to make it clear that I don't hold the CWT organisers responsible in any way for the problems they're having. Rather, they're just innocent bystanders.
