NAC #2 DEADLINE FEB.11!

It would have been helpful, if we had gotten the forms sooner, I
recived my entry form today, (Feb. 8) it was postmarked the 31st of
Jan.  So it took over a week to get here. Even if I was planing to
attend, I would be unable to.  If I put the entry form in the mail
today, to would not get to Atlanta until March 3rd. Well after their
deadline.  This event is expensive enough without the added $10
required to FedEx the entry form in.

Well, enough griping.  Atlanta is a wonderful city, and one of the up
and comming fencing hubs in the U.S. (I was there for a fencing camp
this summer, and a nicer bunch of pepole would be hard to find.)
I wish I could make the Tournament.

I'm sorry you got your forms so late.  There should have been forms
in your most recent USFA newsletter.  Which camp did you attend?

Mer,

I was not planing to attend the tounrey anyway (too many classes.)
But thanks for your concern.
I checked with my other teammates, and we all got our form on the
same day, so there may have been a problem with the post office.

As to your question about which camp I attended:
I went to the Nellya fencers camp in  Fayette(sp) run by Arkady
Burdan.  It was very hot, and they worked us hard, but it was a
lot of fun.

Are the SE Sectionals still going to be in Atlanta, and if so, do you
have the date and schedule?

Thanks in advance.

Cool...Nellya is my club and Burdan is my coach.  He's great, isn't
he? I take epee from him, and seem to be improving rapidly.  They're
holding camp again this year, so tell your friends (they upped the
price, though, because last year the food and coaching was so expensive
the camp lost money).

As for sectionals, yes I think they are in Atlanta, and I will try
to get back to you with a date on them.

Happy fencing!
(Dobray fechtovanya, I think)
