This 32nd edition of the Governor Generals Tournament will be
highlighted this season by the high profile Gala Final in Mens Sabre,
Womens Epee and Mens Foil.  It is the fencing highlight of the season
in Ontario and will feature the return to competition of 15-time Canadian
National Champion Michel DESSUREAULT to the land of competitive
fencing in the mens epee event.

The host club is the RA Les Spadassins Fencing Club, home of the
1995 Cadet World Championships silver medallist in womens epee,
Alexandra WAWRYN and likely 1996 Canadian Olympic men?s epee
team member James RANSOM.  This will also be the host club of the
