Tournament a success

Filed under: 2010 Tournament — milwaukeetourney @ 11:25 am

The tournament was a rousing success, and everyone had a good time.  The fencers fought to a full house of spectators.

Fifteen fencers from four different schools were present at Turner Hall on Saturday, with a variety of dueling swords.  The longest were several Darkwood smarra blades measuring 37 inches beyond the guard, and the shortest a Graves smallsword (which unfortunately an exact length was not obtained of).

The results:

First Place: Ryan Mank of Trovare di Spada (Classical Fencing Society St. Louis)

Second Place: Ben Mandlkern of Durendal Fencing Club Madison Wi.

Third Place: Joseph Dobbs of Classical Fencing Society Milwaukee

Thanks to all who participated, and attended.
