    Thank-you, Clare, for keeping us up to date.

    I hope BF will update us ASAP after they have made a decision on this.

    Good point Francophile!

    The Germans seem to be ahead of the curve on this: all pictured in identical team tracksuits making them look very professional. And I just checked and it's the same...

    Got to say, I think if this was publicised properly and made to look like a proper event you could get a lot of takers, particularly for Ziemek as everyone in this country knows who he is. You could...

    Nothing is going on.

    Sometimes you get a full complement and a waiting list, sometimes you're undersubscribed. This is just what happens if your capacity is about in line with demand. The only way...

    Sounds like a good idea!

    A few questions, Tom.

    What kind of sponsorship have Harvey's promised? Does it go towards prizes or funds that help make the competitions better by, say, paying for...

    An idea to replace late entry fees

    Recently competition organisers seem to be (justifiably) grumbling about people leaving their entries until the last minute, either the week just before the closing date or even after it has passed....

    It does seem strange that Leon Paul won't do a personal request like this. I've heard of them giving the same response to someone else recently. Apparently the conversation went along the lines of:...

    Thanks, Jon, how so? Has the competition become a part of Leon Paul and no longer independent?

    Chris makes a fair point, but surely shouldn't be too difficult to cover yourselves with appropriate...

    No amount of conditioning makes up for poor footwork technique. Find a good coach to teach you good fencing footwork and practise until it's second nature. Don't underestimate the importance of...

    I agree. As sabre is a cutting weapon I can kind of see the logic, but I don't think it makes much sense for foil. Referees with a bit of experience can tell the difference between a beat and a...
