Guys, there are hardly any appropriate opens for me over the next few months in foil (there's no point me doing the Senior Nationals or Birmingham International, given my elderly state).

But then on 27 July there are two competitions on the same day Norfolk and Chichester. I've done both over the years. Can the organisers not co-ordinate a little bit and find different weekends?

There are lots of weekends with no competitions at all. Look at the calendar for May!

PS: Not entirely happy the veterans event in the East Midlands is on the same day as the senior nationals where I'm refereeing.
