On Guard!

Today was the conclusion of our beginning foil class. From left to right - that's Ben our instructor who's been fencing for 30 years or so then there's Mike, and our resident little squirt, Geoffery, Paul and I, and then Derek. My Mom and Dad came to the class and watched. Ben had us actually try out formal bouts against each other on a strip with all the stops and starts like a real fencing competition.

I've always secretly thought it would be cool to learn fencing! Since they actually offer classes in Huntspatch maybe I'll get around to it one day. I'm taking a stained glass class now - something else I've always wanted to do. Anyway, kudos on finishing your class
