Bucklerthon! Also, SwordFish

A bit late for the website update, but a bunch of WSG attendees went to SwordFish. Congratulations are especially due to those who made it to the livestream: Piermarco Terminiello, with a bronze in rapier and dagger, Jack Gassmann with the technical prize in sword and buckler, on a knackered leg to boot, and Peter Smallridge with a wrestling heavyweight silver, and Michela D’Orlando who came fourth in the women’s longsword.

Draping ourselves in the flag

Back in Surrey, there was the Broadwater Bucklerthon, a rather more local event featuring both a novice nylon and invitational steel sidesword and buckler tournament. It’s great to see such effort put into building competitors here in the UK, and there were some familiar faces on the podiums.

And of course, WSG sessions continue in its usual slot. 11am, Colombo Centre. Bring swords!
