Just Some Stuff
Charlotte Fencing Academy Tournament
Medaled in an event. It was not a hard tournament ( C and Under) and I was blessed by the pool fairy. Still, I got some confidence back . Also, a long held goal of gaining a medal at a CHFA event was realized.
Reviewing Tournament Results
This morning, I spent a little time reviewing tournament results on Ask Fred for the event I fenced. My event, was not as interesting as the open. ( I was spent by the time the open came around and the field was just to strong for me. So, I took my Vet 60 butt home.) The main surprise in my event was my young teammate winning. He certainly deserved it and I was proud of him. His rating does not reflect his ability.
The open was more interesting. Things that just should not have happened....happened. It is so often the case in epee events. There were bouts that should have never ended this way. There were lessons in humility. And I may be witnessing something so rare in fencing.....a "natural". To me, it is just fascinating.
