Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZParis, Saturday 6th February Felix Boyce (Toa Rangatira Fencers, Wellington) will be lining up on the piste at probably the largest and most prestigious age category international foil championship event to be held anywhere in the world. He will be the first New Zealander to participate in this event. He will be lining up in the combined Men's age category Minimes (96-95, age 13-14) and Benjamins (97-98, age 11-12). The next older age category is strictly restricted to cadet fencers (94-93, age 15-16).

Paris, 8am, Saturday 6th February, Felix will be at the piste, ready ... with a whole nation of Kiwi supporters on your side ... Go Felix, Kia Kaha.

Clovis Dyson wil also be participating in this competition and heads to Paris today.  He has spent the summer training with his coach, Anya Kamynina, and also participated in the Hign Performance Fencing Camp in Auckland last week.  We wish him all the best for his competition.  Kia kaha Clovis.

FeNZThe overall winners of the inaugural 20+ in Christchurch.
Bryan (Baz) Clark, Sabre
Martin Brill, Epee
Nora Erler, Foil

Thanks to Mid-South and Marguerite for proposing this new event and our host, The Fencing Institute. It was a great opportunity to bring together our adult fencers for fun fencing and to enjoy a social event. We thank Chris Bell, Sally McCance and Hamish Clarke for their refereeing and floor controlling. We also thank Kate and Martin Brill for organisation. Then finally a massive thank you to all the participants and especially to those who went that Extra Mile and traveled by road and plane from Dunedin and Wellington. See you all again next year.

2009-11-11 19:13 - A Gold Triple at 2009 Oceanic Fencing Championships (Noumea)
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZMonique Coleman of Wellington's Hutt Valley Fencing Club struck Gold for New Zealand, twice, to take the Oceania Champion’s title in the individual Women's Foil and Women’s Epee events.

Monique, our new double Oceanic Champion lined up in the Women’s Epee Team event with Nancy Liu (Auckland University Fencing Club) and Susan Grant-Taylor (HVFC). With some great team work, they combined strongly. They won and took a third gold medal and the Women’s Epee Team Oceania Champion title for New Zealand, a Champion’s title each for Nancy and Susan, making it a hat trick of gold around Monique’s neck.

"It was great for our fencers, to be able to fence and perform against the strong fencers from Australia, New Caledonia and for the first time the very good fencers from Tahiti." said Susan-Grant Taylor, our Association’s President. "The New Caledonians presented a wonderful event and were very welcoming."

More results and details when received.
