Great results for Kanata at the Can-Am!

Kanata fencing sent its largest ever team of Veteran fencers to this year's Can-Am competition in Markham. This is the largest Veteran's Fencing event in North America and there were competitors who flew in from many parts of the globe to compete. The level of competition is very strong with several ex-Olympians and World Champions taking part.

Every competitor from Kanata took home a medal (or two)!

Vadim Silver

Vadim proudly shows off his Kanata Fencing jacket whilst on the podium. Vadim earned a Silver medal in Team Foil and a Bronze medal in Team Sabre.

Kanata Sabre Teams

Kanata had two teams in Men's Sabre. We were joined by our friends Frances Lee from Hong Kong and Luc Dombrowski from Quebec City. The team of Bob, Tony and Frances captured a Silver medal and the team of Zoltan, Taner and Luc took home a Bronze medal.

Well done guys!

Kanata fair well in ODFC Final

In spite of the low turnout of Kanata fencers, those that showed up did very well indeed!

Daphne finished just out of the medals in 5th in Women's Open Foil and in the same position in the Mixed Open Foil.

Daphne getting serious!

Evan defeated Adam in the Mixed Open Foil to claim the Gold Medal after a hard fought season between the two Kanata fencers. The overall season trophy went to Adam with Evan in 2nd position!

Technical Sport Shirts

The club is ordering custom made Technical Sports Shirts.

They will be based on the design we voted for earlier this year. They are a breathable 6oz polyester blend. This is both quick drying and stretchy. Should be perfect for fencing! This type of shirt is also usually indestructible and should last a long time.

I highly recommend that everyone gets one!

The cost will be $45. That's including all the taxes and setup fees.
We'll need a minimum order of 25.

If you're interested, I'll need your size and payment before the end of next Tuesday. After that, I'm told it takes about two weeks to have them made.

Please specify if your size category is Adult, Women's, or Children's
