From the Cape Fear Fencing Academy: CFFA update for Feb 1

Lots of fencing across the area this weekend. A CFFA team of Reaghan Juelke, Harry Shaheen, and Will Golder went undefeated at the NCFL meet at Kestrel. They defeated teams from Kestrel, Orange County, and Thales Academy.

Josh Harvey and Oliver Galbraith went to the Hangover in Richmond. Josh was 7th in the open epee (a B2). Oliver was 12th in the epee and 10th in a B1 foil.

I believe UNCW sent fencers to a meet at ECU, but I haven’t heard any results.

Later today the next set of afterschool and evening adult class will start in Wilmington. No Wednesday evening fencing as UNCW is staying on campus this week.

February 6th will be an NCFL meet if a location is found. Orange County is being spoken of as a possibility.

will be away with fencers at the Junior Olympics in Cleveland over the
President’s Day weekend. No fencing at Camp Lejeune that Friday (12th),
and no afterschool on Monday (15th). The UNCW folks will start coming in on Wednesday (17th), so we will be back to our regular schedule at that point.

20th is Mid-South’s Grand Opening anniversary event. Lots of sabre on
Saturday and Open foil and epee on Sunday. Further info on askfred.

20th is scheduled as the NCFL’s High School A team championships, but the recent bad weather in the northern part of the state has caused the SAT to be rescheduled for this date. Therefore the last couple of NCFL meets may be changed. The 27th is
the NCFL’s individual championships depending on possible rescheduling. Locations as yet undecided.

on the 27th is an unsanctioned youth foil tournament in Fayetteville.
Starts at 10 am and has separate divisions for 7-9, and 10-12. On
Sunday they are having adult unsanctioned foil events. Details on askfred.

next event will be the Lynn Krupey Memorial Iron Maiden on March 5th. It
is the only all women’s event held in North Carolina and has all three
weapons. Many of our women are already signed up, but a few are not
yet. See askfred for details. We will also be hosting the homeschool A
team championship on that date at about 11:30 am.

Based on what people told me, here are the summer camp dates. Advanced camps mean that you have passed the beginner class.

July 11-15 Beginner camp

July 18-22 Advanced sabre

July 15-29 Advanced foil

August 1-5 Advanced epee

pax vobiscum,

Greg Spahr
