CFS Milwaukee Tournament: 'Fencing on the Frozen Tundra"

Dear forum,

-- I hope this is an appropriate place to post this announcement - and I apologize that I neglected to share it earlier! --

The Classical Fencing Society is hosting an open dueling-sword competition here in Wisconsin at the historic Milwaukee Turners this weekend, Saturday January 30th, and Sunday January 31st, 2010.  All are welcome to attend.  Stay tuned for photos and videos to come in the aftermath of the event.

Second place will be the DVD set of La Scherma Italiana: Basics of Italian Rapier Fencing with the Maestri Martinez, kindly donated by their Chef du Salle Mr. Jared Kirby.  First place prize will be an engraved silver trophy. 
Also, for the first time we are offering an additional prize for the fencer who achieves the ideal score of True Zero (see the site to learn more)

Please feel free to visit the tourney website for details & directions, including a few brief video clips illustrating Pini's Incontro scenarios explaining Priority

You can also find us on facebook:

All questions or comments are welcome. 

You may email the organizers (Instructor Sean Newton and myself) at

Thank you for looking!

Charles Dobbs
co-Instructor, Classical Fencing Society in Milwaukee.

Re: CFS Milwaukee Tournament: 'Fencing on the Frozen Tundra"

Apologies for not posting an update on tournament results sooner -- please see the website above for details.  The event was a great success, we felt.  Everyone had fun, and fenced their best. 

Here's a little 3 minute video clip from one of the juried assaults in 'Fencing on the Frozen Tundra'.

Questions, comments, & critiques are all welcome...  When time (and space) permits, I look forward to putting up more footage for you all to view at your leisure.
(This weekend we take a little road trip over our spring break to visit the Martinez Academy in New York, and to attend their tournament at SUNY-Purchase; next weekend finds us en route to visit our sister school in St Louis, Trovare di Spada, to train in their sala)

Hope you all are enjoying good fencing exchanges in your areas as well! 
Very much looking forward to our visit to Maitre Crown at salle d'armes IFV.

Yours in the A&S,
