We’ve got a good winning record in the Presidents Cup, long may it continue!
Tomas Kazik did us proud and won the competition this year!
Tomas Kazik came 10th and Charles Benke came 24th in the Epee.
So it was an extremely hot evening and the cooling system in the sports hall had broken. It was too hot to even do a ‘warm up’ without wearing fencing gear, so we fenced outside on the running track, until it got too dark….
This year only Waiman entered the individual competition but we did enter our first U13 team. Quote of the day from Olly telling the ref our team were going on the rampage.
Here is Waiman maybe also going on the rampage
Tomas Kazik came 27th in the men’s epee and Ian Bullock came 111th. Charles Benke came 114 in the men’s foil.
Our lottery grant wasn’t large enough to enable us to pursue new equipment boxes, so we built one ourselves…or rather Gavin Rudge did. Here it is, being wheeled down the roads to the sports centre.
