South Bend Fencing

i’m erad­i­cat­ing the fri­day mp3. i’m bored with it.

tonight i went to a lo­cal fenc­ing tour­na­ment and beat down. over­all i placed third, but the on­ly two bouts i lost the whole evening were against the same per­son, who won the tourny. he is ranked as an ‘A’ by USFA stan­dards, while I, a mere chode, was ‘U’ for un­ranked. but by plac­ing third i got my­self a rank­ing of ‘D.’ Actually, D03 for the year in which i did it. what does this mean? did­dly. but more im­por­tant­ly i found that i re­al­ly en­joy fenc­ing when it doesn’t mean any­thing, and i can just have fun. i en­joyed com­pet­ing as a part of a team, but with­out the pres­sure to do well, fenc­ing is hel­la fun.
