    Default EYC's Boys and Girls Epee

    This years entries are well down on last year compared to the other weapons. especially at Under 16 level.
    Is there a shortage at this age group this year?

    Possibly because the champs are being held in the NE this year whereas previously they were held in the south, with most of the entries from the south also?

    Already apologised for not going this year. It falls on FAJs birthday.

    The top WF Cadets only get back from Bratislava on the previous Monday. Many Sabreurs are away the previous weekend as well.

    I seem to remember that it fell on her birthday last year, and she celebrated by winning it!

    Baldric Jr, I can safely say that as a parent, watching your child fence and being completely unable to help is A LOT more nerve wracking than fencing yourself.
    I am sure thats all Baldric meant, nothing to do with your actual fencing I'm sure!!

    Must remember to put a supply of Jelly Babies at the check in for Baldric.
    Still a shortage of Under 16 Boys Epeeists, It can not be because it is in Gateshead, as most of the entries in the other weapons are from London, South and South West. Maybe it's a dying weapon with fencers switching to the more interesting weapons, such as sabre or foil !!!!

    Closing date is today, but still time for fencers to enter by e-mail.
    The entry for the under 16 boys epee is abysmal, no other word for it. I am sure that there is an explanation somewhere. It can not be the venue or travelling as all other weapons show an increase or very close to last year. The greater percentage of entries are from the South/South West.
