    I think we are all talking about the same thing. I'm appreciating that not one size will fit all, but that sometimes there is confusion about which competitions are for which audience. I think...

    Good post. You've highlighted just how many eggs BF have thrown into that one all important basket. All down to tomorrow morning. And a single event in August. Boom or bust (same old, same old)

    Also, consider the implications for a coach and club where un-insured fencing is condoned. Could reflect poorly on a club's defence that they put safety, good governance etc as a priority.

    I don't think they will die off. You could easily nominate the Scottish Open, Welsh Open and British Championships as selection events (by way of example). Also I think there is a need for clarity...

    Frankly, this system is rewarding under-performance. Unless you are winning a DE/getting a bye, you really shouldn't be getting points. Skew's the rankings terribly and makes it inaccessible for...

    I wouldn't necessarily introduce another level of bureaucracy via RCE's. Developing strong single weapon clubs can fulfil this role. Or maybe we are talking about the same thing? I can see how an...

    I like this idea. Qualification for all international teams/squads from, say, best 3 out of 4 qualifying events. Run by BF to the highest standards. And yes, aiming to break-even, so we should be...

    You've lost me here. What's the problem in paying via DD? If you don't want to do that, speak to your coach, they should be able to do it for you via Sport80 without the additional fee.

    I think BF might be in the position that many talented individuals find themselves, in that you can't get funding until you get results, but you won't get results without the funding!

    With a fabulous set up, FIE refs and one of the best friendly atmospheres you'll fun at any competition, I can't see why this event won't grow over time. Great job by the organisers.

    Right is reacting to Left. An attempted attack on preparation I'd say. The question therefore is whether Left is attacking or preparing. Looks to me like an attack from Left, so counter attack...
