Post date: Mar 15, 2010 10:27:25 PM

March 13th, 2010 the Cincinnati Fencing Club sent 5 of its' members to Fairborn, Ohio for the 2010 Wright Challenge.

We are very proud of Vance Pearlmutter who, in the Youth 12 and Under Dry Foil, placed second and took home the silver medal. He is probably still reminding his father, Vincent Pearlmutter who placed 15th in the Unrated Mixed Dry Foil competition, of that victory right now.

In the Mixed Foil event, our own David Jacobs placed 20th, treasurer Michael Ress placed 18th, and vice president Peter Curnutte placed 14th.

Finally, Michael Ress placed 3rd in the A1 Mixed Epee, upgrading from an E to a C2010! It should be noted that all the A rated fencers who competed in this event finished below Michael!

Thank you to everyone who came out to participate, spectate, and support. This weekend was a fun one for quality fencing that should be considered a precursor to a very exciting season this year.
