    It's the women's event to go with the Miller Hallet (It's NOT an International)- it started off last year as a fairly small event (40 entries, very low NIF count) - it should get bigger = nice event - there is a men's team event on th same day.

    Default Milner-Barry Trophy

    Hi,

    A few corrections to Rdb811's somewhat pessimistic description of the competition:-

    - The competition started in 2002, not last year, and the number of entries grew significantly in 2003

    - I would love to be in a position of thinking that a NIF of 40 was a "very low nif count" but I think most people would agree it's fairly respectable - and as for "a fairly small competition" - last year was won by (I believe) an ex world champion who had to beat a qualifier for this year's Olympics to do it! At the other end there were plenty of novice fencers enjoying both the fencing and the chance to see some high standard fencing (and no, I don't mean in the men's team competition!)

    I thought this was a good, well run, high standard competition with entries from fencers of all abilities, and it deserves to grow even more this year!

    Hope this helps anyone thinking of going along!

    Might be there - might not. Depends on whether the pull of a cricket match and the Sixth Form ball is too strong for the offspring.

    Last year's NIF reflected the size of entry, not the quality, which was VERY high.
