It was cold, wet and miserable. Roads were slippery and most members were quite agreeable not to turn up to the hall but to stay in the warmth.
BUT… One member did! We forgot to ring him and he stood courageously outside the hall for some time braving the elements (a photo will be forwarded as proof of this). Michael Angelo had travelled all the way from Hamilton (not especially for fencing I better add), thrown in his fencing gear in the hopes of some bouts at Salle Angelo but found the hall closed. I think, through his chattering teeth and crackling cellphone, he called us a pack of woosy, mellowpuff fencers. Honour will have to be restored.
