This morning I took David and Tony to the Fencing Factory in East Brunswick. David was fencing the epee and Tony had to have his gear passed through the weapons check.

It was good to see so many fencers again - since I've been out of the sport for a while, it was good to see so many familiar faces - and equally good to see so many new ones coming up through the age levels.

I spent some time talking with Leonie Austen, Simon Summerfield and David Mok about where to fence and where to obtain gear in Victoria. Had to leave shortly after that in order to get to work.
