Binghamton Fall Open 3: His First Fencing Meet :)

What a great day! My little man participated in his first fencing meet yesterday. In a post from earlier in the year, I shared how my son had decided to follow in his mother's footsteps and take up the sport of fencing. If you missed that post, here's the link:  Something About Me Saturday: Another Generation Takes A Stab At Fencing

I warned him before the meet that the point of attending was to try to score touches and to observe other more experienced fencers. Also, it was great practice for him getting hooked and unhooked to equipment more quickly. This was going to be a learning experience. He was the youngest participant (he's only 11) and he was competing against college aged and older folks. He was a winner for being there.

I have to say thank you to several of the Binghamton University fencers who were there yesterday and gave my son advice and words of encouragement just as he was knocked out of the tournament. It meant a lot to him and to me to have that support. Also, I have to say thank you to my brother and my brother in law who stopped up to cheer my son on.
