    Hi folks, I uploaded the Cadet and Junior Rankings to the office a couple of days ago and seem to have made a bit of a hash of it.

    All 4 are being reuploaded today. All except the JWF are...

    Had the event been advertised purely as an entry limited of 84 and when it is reached we are closed, then you can penalise those who enter late. However if you actually publish a closing date then it...

    Can I also put a plea for anyone competent and prepared to referee on Sunday. As Jon said to us today, we have a dearth of foil referees. There is some monetary compensation available. Please contact...

    For information the MF NIF is 520 and the WF NIF is 310.

    That means that for the WF the qualification level for the Euros is L16 rather than L32 (as per the selection document)

    I actually agree with Baldric. It doesn't bother me greatly, but wearing stripes when you haven't been selected to travel abroad to 'something' is a bit of an affectation. Strangely I am not so...

    I think it comes down to the old army term of earning your stripes to corporal and sergeant. It just so happens that we use stripes on HC and GBR kit.

    Land Of Hope and Glory is my preferred choice. GSTQ is NOW the UK National Anthem and, for me, using it for England teams says to the other home nations that England and UK are synonymous.

    Scottish Independence Referendum

    I would say Cameron is the one introducing delaying tactics. The pledge was to a Scottish timetable. There was no mention of a link to English reform. Cameron is running scared of UKIP an thinks he...

    Firstly no competition is unimportant when you are on the piste. So level of stress and supposed importance do not correlate.

    You will often have to parry from a distance from which you cannot riposte. Learn to step in with your riposte making sure you hit with a relaxed arm to allow for the changing distance.

    I know for a fact that the top 5 selected fencers in MF and WF were sent their selection letters yesterday. I cannot confirm the Sabre and Epee, as I am only a foil selector but I presume so.
