In Kingston the K-Town Challenge was held at the Kingston Fencing Club. Vadim Reznikov made the trip and was rewarded with a Silver medal in Veteran sabre and a Bronze medal in Veteran foil!

In Montreal there was the first AAA tournament of the year and Daniel Manyoki earned a Bronze medal against a very tough field in foil! In the Veteran's category an unfortunate circumstance pitted Antony Roberts against Bob Rennick in the direct elimination, meaning that only one of our fencers would advance to the medal round. It was a very close match that saw Antony defeat Bob 10-9! Antony went on to with the Silver medal!

 
 Congratulations to all our fencers! Well done!
