Club members Adrian Griffin, Mark Leech, Malcolm Allton and Caryl Oliver were in action on 3-4 March at selection events for Great Britain Veteran Teams at the European Championships and World Championships. Congratulations to Malcolm and Caryl, who both won Bronze medals and so are automatically on the team for the Worlds! Caryl has also been selected for the Europeans.
We will be entering men’s and women’s teams (hopefully) in all three weapons for this event, which takes place at Oxford Brookes Sports Centre on Saturday 3rd February 09:00 – 12:00. If you’d like to have a quick morning’s fencing against a couple of student teams, in any weapon then please let Tim know in the club or by email. We’d be particularly keen to hear from anyone who’s over 13 who’d like to fence Sabre!!
Calling all OFC epeeists for a team (or teams) to enter the Alice Ruggles Memorial Trust event at Leicester University on 17 December.
This looks like a good event, as all teams are guaranteed five matches, and check-in is at a civilised 11am.
Last time OFC entered a team competition, we came away with gold!
Full details of the competition are available here.
Closing date for entries is 22 November, so please get in touch asap if you want to take part.
