08:05 pm - The Scottish Open ...
So, how did I do today ?

<font size=+a zillion>
I won ! (add "!"s to taste)
</font>


Woohoo !

(the brief gory details - won 3/lost 2 in the first round of pools, but that was only used for seeding into the second round. Won all 5 in the second round, and had an indicator of +20 - that was just enough to have me seeded 1st into the DE. Won my DE bouts 15-8, 15-14, 15-12, 15-10 and 15-13 ... and that was what it took to get me a shiny medal and shiny trophy ! Whee !)

(I've been fencing since 1994; this is the first open tournament I've won. Am I excited ? :-) )
Current Mood: excitedYou bet I'm excited !

(25 touches | En garde !)

Congratulations. I don't fence myself, but I know enough people who used to and understand that you've done jolly well.

Congrats dude.

I don't get the whole fencing scoring thing, but celebrate your achievement nevertheless.

So... How many did you kill?

Congratulations! If we are ever required to have a duel, I shall remember to bring anything other than a sharpened stick.

Do you have a t-shirt that says 'The Most Dangerous Man in Scotland' yet?
