The Commonwealth Champs will be held on Blackcomb mountain in the
ski resort of Whistler, BC, the week of June 20. Whistler is an hour
or two north of Vancouver, and is one of the top ski resorts in the
world, being the site of a World Cup downhill race each year. Summer
skiing is possible on the glacier at the top of Blackcomb mountain,
and there is lots of other summer recreation throughout the area.
Rumour has it that the fencing will be outdoors at the lodge up on
Blackcomb mountain -- fencers and spectator will have to take a ski-lift
to get there! It's the most unusual and spectacular fencing venue I've
ever heard of (we can't do castles in this part of the world), and I plan
to attend all or part of it.
