Cheltenham Midsummer Fiesta July 6th 2013

On 6th July Cotswold Fencing Club took part in the Cheltenham Midsummer Fiesta in Montpellier gardens. After last year washout, this year was the exact opposite with hot brilliant sunshine. A trial for the fencers, but bright white equipment reflected the sunshine and so strangely enough we kept cooler by keeping our jackets on. We were running demonstrations of foil and epee, interspersed by public participation using plastic (buzzy) foils and foam sabres. It was a good day and we must have had about 60 participants. Thanks to Nat, Andrew O, Andrew T, Hannah, Jon, and Liam for helping me out. Pictures below, sorry for the poor quality but they are from my phone. Kevin.
