... this is the short version. I did 7 fencing competitions over 4 weeks. Ummm ... it seemed like a good idea at the time :)
And I've had some kind of cold or cough or bug coming and going for most of the last 4 weeks ...

1. 14/11 - State Sabre Teams championships - I got roped in at the last minute to make a team so that the competition would actually run. We came 3rd of 3 teams, although it was closer than that makes it appear - each team won one and lost one, the ranking was made on indicators.

2. 22/11 - State Open Epee championships - 3rd (of 16). (note - with 3rd place play-off)

3. 29/11 - Club Open Epee championships - 1st (of 7).

4. 30/11 - State Veteran Epee championships - 2nd (of 7).

5. 6-7/12 - Oceania & National Open Epee championships - 20th (of 63).

6. 7/12 - Oceania & National Veteran Epee championships - equal 3rd (of 25).

7. 7/12 - Oceania & National Veteran Epee Teams championship - 2nd (of 7 teams).


My competition placings for the whole year go:
5, 1, 7, 1, 3, 3, 1, 2, 20, 3, 2

Nice work. I hope to be able to fence the circuit next year, and maybe run over for some Vic locals, if that's a thing that's allowed... the depth in sabre here is, um, not.

Hmmm, I think it's allowed.
The good news is that there's (slightly) more depth in sabre here, I think (including the current Women's National Champion).
The ... other news, is that local sabre comps are at 6:45pm on a Friday night. Possibly less convenient for the timing of travel etc.
Finally, I'm not exactly sure if the online entry system actually allows for non-Victorian-affiliated fencers to enter events, I'd have to check.
However, the silver lining is that the competition co-ordinator these days is the above-mentioned National Champion (i.e. Sam), and contacting her directly might be useful ...

(PS If you need somewhere to stay, we currently have a guest room (modulo grandparent visits). Our situation may mutate considerably through next year as #2 arrives and we adapt ...)
