I did a little fencing at George AFB, foil only. Since I was on base less than 90 days, I didn't advance very far.

That is so neat!

I’ll bet Uhura didn’t fence. Sulu was yummy while fencing in TOS. In the recent reboot movie, he was dead serious rather than dashing.

I’m a lefty. I took fencing as my PE credit in college, and haven’t a clue why I didn’t continue. Such fun—Heyer reader & medievalist, why not?

The young engineer I mentioned who got engaged the same week we did met his wife at a con. He was sitting alone in a corridor reading, and she decided to engage him in chat. The rest is history.
