Seattle women's epee: I finish sixth!

The long version will come tomorrow but the short version is: Elizabeth McClung is now a ranked fencer as I finish 6th out of 23 fencers (if only 2 more had shown up!!). So, thus ends my first epee tourney - see what you can do if you just fence for 6 months, be very tall and take a LOT of pain pills. Oh yeah, the woman who knocked me out went on to win the tourney! Did not cry, did not make anyone cry. Having a LONG shower and going out for mexican and beer!

Yah!

Wow! I checked the site of the tournament before looking at this - a shame there weren't two more fencers (not that I understand how that works) but SIXTH!!!!! WOW!!!! and a ranking!

Awesome!!!!!!!! (too early in the morning here to think of anything more emphatic than exclamation marks)

Looking forward to the full report.

Congratulations!

You could come to the NAC in Reno year after next, too. :)

We were at the Sierra Nevada Open (if you drink beer, this is a *great* tournament) last weekend. Lots of fun.

Good for you! Soon, very soon, I will appear on your door and ask you to join a secret army to fight for the underdog. Bring your sword and a light lunch.
