Yesterday IFC hosted an E & Under competition. Gus, Jake and Clara fenced in their respective events. In the Foil, Gus had a rough start, but was able to recover a bit at the end. Unfortunately, it was too little, a bit too late, but an important lesson learned from the day. Unfortunately, Jake and Clara met in the first round of Direct Elimination.

This week we'll have all our normal practices, Theresa will be in for lessons tonight and Thursday. We look forward to starting our Adult Intro class on Thursday at 7 PM with Saber. Alex has, sadly, ventured to the Caribbean for the next 6 months. Clint will be taking his classes until we can find a temporary replacement.

Our next local competition will be in Mt. Prospect on March 23rd at IFC.
