Post by JB1J » Sat, 07 Jan 1995 23:32:02


There has been a post with the Div. II and III dates (March 10-12), but I
do not recall seeing anthing that says what events are each day and at
what time.  Those of us from out of town need to buy ariplane tickets.
Could someone please post this?

Div II and Div III Schedule??

They are in Evanston, a suburb of chicago.  All that I remember offhand is
that Div II epee is on Friday.  I was disappointed to see Fencing on a
Friday, because Division II fencers such as myself are often unable to
sacrifice a day of work to fence.  I was ready to go if the event was on
Saturday or Sunday.  If I were serious enough to take major time off from
work to fence, I would be a division I fencer (or retired).    If you call
USFA HQ, they will mail you a schedule/application.

Good Luck,
Joel Solomon
