Hi,

  I just recently moved into Maryland and have some free time on my
hands and want to get back into fencing.  I haven't fenced since
College, about 4 years ago.

  Are there any fencing equipment stores in Maryland?  I need a new
blade for my foil, but it has been so long since I purchesed it I
can't remember any of the blades demensions so I can't mail order it.

  Are there any fencing clubs in Howard County or Anne Ur(something)
county?  I work in Columbia and live in Glen Burnie, so I'm looking
for something around there and I don't know my way around Maryland,
except how to get to work and back. :)

  I'm really a novice, I only fenced for about a year before moving
made me give it up.

  So if you know of any info that could help me out I'd be gratefull.

Thanks in Advance,
MarkV.

There used to be a club at Fort Meade -- I don't know its current status.
If you are willing to travel, D.C. Fencers Club, at the Alice Deal School
on Nebraska Ave. in D.C., is one of the best in the country.  At the other
end of the compass are Salle Palasz in Baltimore (on the campus of Johns
Hopkins University) and my club, Chesapeake Fencing Club, which is about a
mile away.  E-mail me if you would like more information.

Where in Maryland are you (or would you be)?  There are also two fnecing groups
in Southern MD, although I don't know there status a present.  I believe
one is called the St. Mary's (County) Fencing Club and the other is the
St. Mary's College Fencing Club.  The one at the college, I'm sure would
appreciate any visits you could make, as they would be pretty much learning on
their own.  AS Remise mentioned, the DC fencers is very good, and you might
try to reach Werner Mueller for times.  Salle Palasz is very competition
oriented and also quite good.  Not seeing your original post, I don't
know whether you're visiting or lliving in Maryland.
good luck,
Michael Sharp

As I have mentioned before the club at UMBC is revived and anyone interested is
more than welcome to come and "smack it around." Our practices are on Monday
afternoons 1-2 in the ECS building, and on Thursday evenings 4-7pm in the Fine
Arts building room 451. If you plan to attend please email me or my
vice-president at UMBC.
