|08:05 pm - The Scottish Open ...|
So, how did I do today ?
<font size=+a zillion>
I won ! (add "!"s to taste)
(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: You bet I'm excited !

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

Hurrah! Go you!
I don't get the whole fencing scoring thing, but celebrate your achievement nevertheless.
So... How many did you kill?
Vast hordes Ummm, 13, in all :-)
Congratulations! Especially since it's your first. So many times you've seemed to come close... :D
Yes ! Over here, one 2nd and three 3rds, and a fair few of 2nds and 3rds from Victorian comps as well ...

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?
Hey congratulations! May it not be your last but only the beginning of many more victories! :)

Yay! Winning plus trophy!
