    The site looks fantastic Bren. Also, I’d love to put up pictures in the About Us section.

    Todd, Bren and Nick – Thanks SO MUCH for the introduction to your club and a fantastically fun night of fencing! Great drills, enthusiasm, and venue. I honestly couldn’t ask for more.

    I actually felt pretty good the next day (honestly, I think it’s been 14 years, not 12…) and look forward to making it down your way once a month, and possibly more if my schedule allows.

    Thanks too Jeremy – I’m looking forward to a foil rematch!
