Thank you everyone, for making today so satisfying to put on. The children contested 1445 hits, in 255 fights.
(We had planned to contest 1710 hits across 270 fights, but one of the children had to withdraw during check-in, due to a family emergency, so then we planned to contest 1615 hits).
Things didn't go quite as smoothly as we wanted yesterday - pretty much from the moment smoke came out from under the bonnet of the car that was bringing the tables, the chairs, and the fencing gear!
It's the first time that the fencing has over-run our hall booking, but all's well that ends well, and the results will go on-line here soon.
Each competition, we try to learn lessons so that the next one runs better, more smoothly, more slickly, more enjoyably - please do send us your comments and your criticisms so we get to know about all the things that niggled or delighted.
