    I was told yesterday that there has been a complaint made about the event. So this was not a spontaneous BF action.

    I have to say that I have just reread the rules and there is no mention of how...

    The London Open

    I had an inkling this was going to happen. I suspect it will have to do with the byes given to the foreign fencers.

    With NIF values given to foreign fencers depending on how many GBR NIFS they...

    I think it will have to mature an conform of it will not be counted towards rankings. A few people attend hoping to win money. Most attend to get points because of the presence of those looking to...

    From my reading, the top 5 in the Scottish WF is basically fixed already as there are already 7 fencers in the top 32 of the senior rankings. Whatever Katie manages to do this weekend, she is not...

    Now here I agree with Ron, specifically about the physical infrastructure. Lee Valley may be a great place to have access to the non-fencing facilities, such as the performance gym etc on site, but...

    Coaching the Distance Game

    I've felt the results of it and it continues over time. The coach always delivers their action at the same depth so the riposte is always with a full straight arm. Result: when I start coaching the...

    Hi, is Toni going to be in Szombathely this year? I will be there with a British Fencing group. It would be good to see him again. I met one of his fencers there a few years ago, but he wasn't there....

    Then flyboy you would be wrong. All you have demonstrated is the lack of strength in depth of British Cadet fencing.

    Sorry, but 11 and 12 year olds should be prioritising age groups below cadets. There are not enough weekends to avoid clashes.

    Gawd knows where that came from. What I meant was The Cornmill Pub, a traditional pub/restaurant with traditional fayre.
  18. Nottingham (Winton Cup) good place to eat?

    Stapleford, very close to Novotel, Vivos Italian, would need to book.

    Toton, The Beekeeper, nice pub/restaurant. Traditional gayer.

    Someone clearly has not been to the rugby scrum of an Italian cadet event I went to one year.

    I do however take the point of the separation of fencers and spectators. We are really bad at this in...

    But these fencers were sent to Senior World Cup team events? Surely this is a better level for them to get experience, but they can't go?

    I sometimes forget that I have been at this fencing game for some 30 years now and some, especially parents of new cadets have not been around as long.
