The SVCC #2 tournament for the 2008-9 Season will be in San Marcos, TX and sponsored by the STX Division. LongBlade (Kyle Maysel) and Oscar Barrera are the organizers. Kudos to them! The SVCC#2, the Ken Hogan Veterans tournament will be held in San Marcos, TX on Saturday November 15, 2008. On Sunday November 16, the Ken Hogan would likely be an Open event.
Registration in Ask Fred will be posted soon.
We also have now scheduled the SVCC #3 tournament in San Antonio Texas, the 4th Veteran's Melee on January 24, 2009, a week prior to the 29th Poujardieu Memorial Tournament. Information on the SVCC can be found at: askfred.net/Events/moreInfo.php?tournament_id=5485 .
As I indicated earlier, we are expecting to have the SVCC #4 in Katy, TX sometime during Spring of 2009.
Please consider attending the Southwest Veterans' Circuit Cup (SVCC) #2 tournament for this season. I convinced Oscar to give us Saturday for this VETERAN tournament. We plan to have 4 events this year, with #3 on Jan. 24 in San Antonio, and #4 sometime in April or May at Katy Blades.. For Veterans, we have a limited number of tournaments with similarly able (or disabled) fencers. Please register and attend the San Marcos tournament.
Ray Sexton was on fire getting Gold in VMF and VMS, and Silver in VME. I lost to eventual VME Gold medalist, John Moreau. Don Cravey and Curtis Hardy also earned medals and points.
Points were updated in the SVCC standings after the Ken Hogan Tournament. Keep in mind that the rules for points are different for the 3-weapon standings, in order to factor the strength of the events. Before DEs, we did 2 rounds of pools for VMF and had a single 7 fencers pool for VME. In VME, we had 3 As, 3 Bs and a nasty C. VMS had a single round and DEs. We then went to dinner and to celebrate at Pompei Italian Grill. The Open events on Sunday were also very competitive. Mixed Epee was an A1.
We are looking forward to see more Veteran Fencers on Saturday January 24, 2009 for the 4th Veterans' Melee.

schlager7: A lot of clubs won't go younger than 10 or 12, but a few take students as young as 7. (I know because there are competitions for youth 8 & under at some tournaments).
