At long last, the Concours Internationaux d'Escrime de la Jeunesse 2015 is upon us. Taking place from 1:00pm to 6:00pm tomorrow, the event will take place at the following location:
1224 Cornwall Ave.
I have included the map of the location at the top of this post. Please make sure that you arrive slightly before 1pm as we will be adhering to a punctual schedule. Street parking is free on Saturdays in downtown Bellingham and there are many spaces available. Also, remember to bring snacks, water and a change of clothing along with your fencing gear. In addition to looking at the cleanliness of Foils, the directors will also be looking at fencers' uniforms during the equipment check so please make sure that your uniforms are clean and have all the manufacturers' labels as well as the straps on the back of the masks removed.
Two further notes of interest is that the Leopold was a former hotel converted into a retirement residence and we have invited the residents of the building to observe the event. Lastly, we will be taking video footage of the event so, if you are interviewed and do not mind being included in the video, please feel free to answer the questions asked by the interviewer.
I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow and to a fine demonstration of Classical Fencing.
