    Guildford v University of Surrey - 22nd April

    This was the return fixture. Unfortunately due to time constraints the Foil match had to be abandoned as a draw with the score being University of Surrey 30 points to Guildford's 21. Simon assures me that we would have come back!

    The results were as follows: Guildford - 196 points University of Surrey - 176 points.

    The competition consisted of 5 matches - one sabre, one epee and one foil plus two novice foil. Guildford were victorious in the sabre and epee and the novice foil matches were evenly divided with the foil match, as mentioned above, being declared a draw

    Dan Brooks, Floris Van Swet and Jon (?) fenced all three weapons for the University.

Berna won the ladies event from an extremely small entry! The top nine will go forward to fence in the Club Foil. Many thanks to all those who helped organise, especially to Diane Austin, Tonya Cheatham, Simon Pearson and S Jaya1ath for refereeing.

    Club Foil (Mixed)

    12th to 19th November

    The first round of the Club Foil was held on the 12th November. The competition was limited to 18 entries and fenced in 3 poules of six fencers. The competition was then run by direct elimination and there was just time to fence an incomplete direct elimination round of 32, with the last four fencers having to fight for the final two places in the last 16. Special congratulations to Julien Hartley who took advantage of the withdrawal of Sam Piper. Julien was placed 12th after the seeding round. Commiserations to Tony Palmer, after his success of last week. Many thanks again to all those who refereed and especially to Diane Austin and Tonya Cheatham.

    Result of last 32

    Eugene Palmer beat Tony Palmer (10-4) and

    Niki Lewis beat Richard Boddington (10-3).

    19th November: The direct elimination proved to be a success with Eugene Palmer nearly providing the major upset by only losing to Chris Hider by one point. Simon Wood had unfortunately to withdraw so Simon Pearson had a bye into the last 8. Sadly, Simon Pearson had had an argument with a tree over the weekend so was not at his best. Congratulations to all finalists, especially to Phil Fenn who won for the second year running. The Ladies Foil trophy was won by Kirsty Macdonald. John Kidd received a silver medal to add to his gold medal for the Intermediate Foil and Chris Hider and Vilya Harvey were joint bronze medalists. John will receive a bye into the Foil competition next year. Many thanks to all who volunteered to referee, Simon Pearson, Phil Fenn, Tim Schofield, S Jaya1ath and especially to Tim Ewing, who gave up most of an evening's fencing. We still owe you that beer.

    Club One Hit Epee

    10th December, 2004

    This was a very popular competition this year with 30 members entering, double last year's entry. Julie would like to thank the following people for their help: Tim Schofield, Simon Pearson, Neale Thomas and Tim Harris. Special thanks to Andy Reynolds for his expertise and to Ben Measures for the use of his pentathlete one hit epee computer programme. To be able to run the competition on one evening meant fencing over 5 pistes and extending the evening until 10.30. (Fortunately, perhaps, several fencers scratched and there was just enough time at the end of the competition for the customery visit to the pub!)

    First place was in contention by about 6 fencers for most of the evening and until the very last round it looked as if there would be a three way tie for first place, between Neale Thomas, Simon Pearson and Steve Pope but Steve dropped two fights in the final round, to leave the barrage between Neale Thomas and Simon Pearson. In the barrage, Neale and Simon treated each other with great respect with a careful, considered duel. Congratulations to Neale who got the winning hit.

    Congratulations also to Berna Duymaz who had never picked up an epee before but who was the highest placed lady.

    1. Neale Thomas -18 hits
    2, Simon Pearson - 18 hits
    3. Steve Pope - 16 hits
    4. Daniel, Brooks, Vilya Harvey, Tony Palmer, Tim Schofield - 13 hits
    8. Chris Schofield, Antoine Ubaghs - 12 hits
    10. Richard Bodington, Berna Duymaz, Richard Hall, Tim Harris - 11 hits
    14. Andrew McNeil - 10 hits
    15. Kirsty Macdonald - 9 hits
    16. S Jaya1ath, Tonya Lane - 8 hits
    18. Niki Lewis - 6 hits
    19. Nigel Holt - 5 hits
    20. Julie Schofield - 4 hits
    21. Tonya Cheatham, Jenna Hardy - 3 hits
    23. Rakash Gupta - 2 hits

    Club Intermediate Sabre

    28th January, 2005

    Interest in sabre is steadily increasing at the Club. I can recall just a few years ago when we struggled to get 5 fencers in the Club Sabre - on Friday there were 10 entries for the Intermediate Sabre alone, although, unfortunately, two members were caught up in traffic/work and had to withdraw. An increasing hazard of living in the crowded south-east I suppose.

    The Competition was fenced in two poules of 5 followed by a direct elimination from eight. The poules were fenced one after the other, allowing us to use the box with the new sabre timings. The Competition ran speedily and efficiently, thanks especially to SJ for his sterling work refereeing. Congratulations to Antoine Ubaghs as the winner. Congratulations to Kirsty Macdonald as the highest placed lady. Antoine beat Kirsty in the final. Congratulations to Vilya Harvey and Richard Hall who were joint third.

    The top 5 fencers after the round of poules were promoted to the Club Sabre next week.

    Thanks to all who helped.

    Results after the poules:

    1. Antoine Ubaghs 2.Richard Hall
    3. Kirsty Macdonald. 4. Tony Lane
    5. Vilya Harvey all promoted to Club Sabre
