Tim took these pictures at the British Junior championships in October 2000. "Junior" in this sense means "under-20"! Click on the small picture for a larger image.
These pictures were taken with an SLR camera using slide film and scanned in. The scanner has not done justice to the slides and I may get the better ones transferred professionally one day.

These pictures come from the South-East England Regional age-group Championships in the autumn of 2000. Guildford had three medal-winners - gold, silver and bronze - in different age-groups, and other entrants who also did well.
As at the Junior Championships, these pictures were taken on slide film and scanned directly.

The GFC Junior Competition was held between members of the club in July 2001. It was held in the Cricket Centre sports hall behind George Abbot School, where we have been training for the summer term. It was excellent to have so much space.

|Diane refereeing; Ben is refereeing another piste on the right. I can make out Anna Walker at the far end of the piste, and Daniel Stranger is fencing at that end; who is fencing at this end, though?|
|Two fights by junior beginners.|
|A creditable attack and parry from fencers who have only been fencing two terms.|
|The winner - Tom, a guest from Wimbledon - gets first choice at the sweets.|
|Trevor hands Cassie her medal.|

|A group picture of the usual suspects.|
|Two referees (Derek and Tim), no doubt discussing the finer points of the rules after the competition. (Or click here for a much larger version - 112Kbyte).|
