    The BAF is not going to go away but yes, having two competing systems is confusing. Although to be honest, the BAF has been the only system in town beyond basic level for a few years now.

    Hi Alex, There really is some fixture congestion around. With 2 of my men's fencers possibly competing in 2 weapons is Sheffield, they could very well be fencing on 17th, 19th, 21st, 24th and 27th...

    A lower fixed cost would encourage more members.

    I'm assuming GBR will be JAD, RK and either LH or MM. Really not a lot in it, so much depends on form on the day. Each of those 4 have had good and bad days over the last few months.
