I hope everyone had a good weekend at the Korfanty World Cup at UIC! It was an amazing weekend of fencing: watching the competitors warm-up, practice, and compete. Additionally, I got to catch up a bit with some old friends who traveled in for the weekend to both fence and referee. From those conversations I got lots of ideas on practice.
This week we'll have all our usual practices. The Groupon deal continues and I'll be giving a couple of extra lessons because of that.
On Saturday, there is a competition at Redstar. I encourage everyone to sign up for that - the Foil is around noon and the Saber goes later in the afternoon.
On May 18, New Trier is hosting an Open and Y-14 event that would be good for all those eligible as the current season winds down.
