Could it have been a matter of the location?
You should have been to Essex and Bristol in the old days ..... although even then they had toilet seats!
I see someone from British Fencing read my post and corrected Travejo and Lucernay - very subtle ... not
I also note that the French powers that be favour random selections (that particular...
Pity noone thought to check the spelling of some of the names - Trevejo (a mere strip of a lad at 42 and the 1996 Olympic Silver Medallist) may have changed his nationality from Cuban to French but...
Whilst no francophile myself I rather suspect the feeling was mutual ;)
It's empty for me too
Sooner rather than later please otherwise there can and will only be years more debate. It is impossible to please everyone so can some kind soul please try to work out what the majority wants?
I think someone missed the point. I suspect there will be many a fencing parent out "on-the-piste" in the run-up to Christmas - but swordplay will not come into the equation

Very well put. All I would have clarified/qualified would have been ".... a more hands on but at the same time inclusive and open-minded approach to our international programme, particularly with...
Don't get me started on this subject. Whilst funding is certainly an issue for some fencers, on the other hand the PD has been blinkered and inflexible in her attitude (possibly aided and abetted...
Yes, but you have an enlightened system which rewards each attending fencer irrespective of their result. This recognises both the strength and quality of the participants but at the same time...
Some people might prefer her to publicly tender her resignation
Read my earlier post: quite often the challenging overseas competitions clash with high NIF (but not necessary as challenging - or high quality in terms of opponents) domestic events and therefore...
But they should not be disadvantaged by so doing - this is why this particular edict is both short-sighted and unfair
.... and potential/prospective high performers are stifled by said system
