Training sessions at Collège Brébeuf

While our salle d'armes is still closed for an indefinite time period, we found temporary refuge at the new sports complex at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf (5623 av. Decelles). Starting next Thursday, July 5th, we will be there on Mondays and Thursdays from 7 to 10 pm. If you are lost once you get to the complex, please ask at the reception. The room has many electric strips, but no gear or clothing to borrow, so bring your own equipment! To get whatever you need (bags, jackets, masks, weapons) from our lockers, the club will be open next Wednesday, July 4th, from 6 to 9 pm. Please note that we are not allowed to fence or take lessons there for the moment.

Fencing Outdoors in Fort Ticonderoga

It looks like joining the "veterans" league this month gave Alain Lefebvre new wings. Last Sunday, May 29th, he was the one to represent Canada at the annual outdoors epee challenge in Fort Ticonderoga (New York), on the beautiful Lake Champlain. Despite moody weather and a rain date, which the tournament managed to avoid for so many years, 32 fencers came to cross blades in this historical site. And Alain took the honours winning a gold medal and a trophy in a tight 15-14 bout against Chris Young from VFA, best favourite after the pools. Bravo Alain! Keeping up with EMR's high standards: the gold was once already ours with Ilya Krouglikov winning the challenge in 2008.

AAA & Veteran Championships, May 14, Montreal

It was certainly a good day for Alain Lefebvre, the new provincial veteran epee champion! Alain just turned 40 to pass the cap of the veterans a few weeks ago, so it was his first competition in the new pool - and the largest veteran event of the season with 24 participants. Bravo! Alain also finished in the top 8 of the AAA championship, defeating his teammate Stéphane Deschamps. Meanwhile, still among the veterans, Andrew Cashen won bronze in sabre after a tight 15-14 bout against Peter McLaughlin, also a teammate from EMR. Last but not least, Mirna Monla finished the day with a silver medal in senior women's foil. Congratulations!
