Elite Epee weekend – all ages on the piste
16-17 September 2017
There was a busy weekend for the epee fencers. Many different age group competed for two days in Moulton. 
The youngsters fenced on Saturday and won 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medal. Great performance and good sign for the future. Well done for all of you and thank you for the parents as well for all the support. 
Sunday was a strong showing from the club with over 10 senior fencers in the competition.
However it was not the luckiest day for us. Every round had an unlucky draw that our fencers had to fight with each other. Only Owen Jordan reached the top 8 and finished at the 5th place. 
Still the beginning of the season – sleepy start: this is the performance what we are definitely going to improve.
Congratulation for everyone who competed and keep working hard!
