Cropley, Theodore : UNAT6 D0 D1 V5 V5 V5 X 3 (60%) 16 18 -2 3
Bethel A - surprized him and he went too defensive.
Raynis A - just couldn't get a handle on his style, he sucked me into his distance, and liked close attacks, but he was long enough to reach.
Tso E - he had this attack into parry 6 hold, twist his body around come over the top of your 6 down and hit your rear end on the outside. I let him get too close and he kept getting it.
Cropley E - he looked scary, he beat Raynis 5/0 but I was able to keep him out of distance.
2) Kevin Mo Lefty A 5/15
a bit sore nd a little bit slow all day. but didn't really have much problem, I got a couple good hits, hand and a coupe. but he did good timing on he over the top disengages, and got me if I went for the leg he was showing, and I missed the back shot.

Bassein, Jed : BHFC 6 D3 D3 V5 V5 D4 x 2 (40%) 20 18 2 3
Bassein E05 - should have been 5/3 allowed doubles at the end.
Jensen A05 - lefty did ok but he was better at catch and follow in
Kiang C06 - messed up geting in too close, did much better with disengage &fletch than close in, lost 2 shouldn't have, ought to be 5/2
Kavanaugh A06 - Wooo!! scared him with attack right out of the gate, and he went extra defensive, & I out reached and evaded. he liked to be at the end of the strip, but I backed off enough to stop his counters, or pre-empted his attacks.
Tied for 1st!! at least according to this, according to the director, I was 2nd because all else being equal - as it is with Jense - but he won our bout.
DE 1 = bye
2 = Kleeman, Maxwell E2006 15/13 tinly skinny kid with huge reach. Craig gave me a heads up on him thankfully! otherwise don't think I would have caught on about his huge reach. got a couple by retreat counter severa singles several more doubles he had a good aim coming in from far slight out. but managed to mess him up in distance.
3 = Caswell, Joe A2004 10/15. started off very good, surprized him with my reach, and managed to catch a few of his attacks before he got in. but he caught on quickly and had better point control. then for some dumb reason I started rushing and that threw it. I think if I had settled down I may have had a chance.
tied for 9th of 38

Shenkel C2005 5/4 tiny hard to hit quick, but managed to get it at last
Chen E2006 2/5 small, thin, good attacks, again hard to find target, but even worse I had poor distance, and got in too close far too often.
Navarro C2006 5/2 hit & retreat! counter & twist, works well, he comes in big and wide from the outside, hard to parry, but easy(er) to evade or counter.
Koerner U 5/0 easily kept distance (and yet this is the guy who beat Chen!)
Baik U 5/1 mean but should have been 5/0 my lunge attack was consistantly hitting, but thru in a parry repost which he caught and got me on, didn't push as hard as I could have. being too nice...
1: - bye
2: Navarro C2006 15/8 kept good distance and did counter & run! until he changed, then after he's only gotten 4 points in a row noticed and changed up.
3: Chen E2006 13/15 hard to find an open spot to hit, kept up about and down the whole time tried to inishiate but the dir kept calling my attack pause 2nd attack and luckily chen was getting offs started keeping distance much better then saw openening and go to 13/14 but started to get too tired to get out of the way of his attacks, so tried to do a disengage but he caught it...

ended up vs Shawn
once he got up on me, I tried to rush in, and lost 3 or 4 more, I should have taken my time, it was still the 1st period! in and out more, tho he did get a few really good ones where I thought I was out or range, and I lost a few just too lightly touched him. but mostly it was I rushed and tried to out agressive him and just can't.
20060816 Wed Salle
Level 5 with Tracy
Augusta 4/5 from 4/4 from 2/3 stay back use distance, she gets in close, go past, don't stop & try in fighting. she still does bad parry 4 but not as much or as often. low line from 6 flick worked. parry with distance counter hit 2x's parry repost 1x she wouldn't repost parry & wait too often. need 2 control reposts better.
Cory(2) 5/0? likes to counter parry to 6. fletche from a bit far. counter twist works 1x or counter duck 1x parry repost is hard since always tries to counter parry needs point control.

Chuck 5/0 last bout of the night, he may have been too tired, but seemed slower and easier to read.
Gah! my car broke again, the drivers side handle snaped something, and wouldn't open., the passenger side already didn't have a keyhole, and the rear has been broken & jammed since it was in the accident.. - luckily Brian & his Dad were able to break into it for me.

I was still getting in too close, and not giving ground when I had plenty of room, alot of them were rushing in, but I stood ground instead of retreat with some sort of defence & reposting. too many counters, although some were working, often luck that they didn't also hit.

seed 7th of 19
DE 1 Bye
DE 2 Cisuf (another lefty! balding guy I've seen before, but don't think I've fenced) 4/6 again my hits just skip off, did get one really good disenage and up over, like I try with chuck. 7/9
7/10 11/13 14/14 15/14 pulled it off, was quite a hard bout, we both got red cards, him for turning his back to look at the box(it wouldn't sound) and me for covering once, and twisting too much 'turning my back', I did one nice parry with distance and the director even called it for me. several sloppy remiezes. a couple counters and lucky he missed. once I got inside his distance on a counter. most were from moving in and out of distance letting him attack short and doing a beat attack disengage or parry or something.
DE 3 Corin Porter. another lefty! 3/15. bah. did get one really nice parry repost, one sort of sloppy one, 2 I thought should've been mine, but called his inisiation or his beat no my parry. the other hit was on a disengage?

20060219 Sun OCD LB USFA
pool of 6 only lost to the guy who ended up #1 seed
but still thought I could've done a bit better on him
but she started 0/2 So I was getting very concerned! ended up I could just out-reach
almost all the way up I was 1 ahead or even then 13/12 13/13 13/14 I never felt comfortable enough with just 1 up that I could go to total defence. at the end I was pushing for the point and got to close - hell my tip ended up past hime twice! I was letting my arm go back too much not keeping an epee guard distance,. got tired, tried coupe too much, and with a bent arm. all in all I did good, but not great. I really could've done better. Even tho this guy was 3rd seed he was a U and not really above me in skill, it wasn't like I was fighting to keep up, he just pulled it out at the end and I didn't have any more.
Jackie did very well in Epee
David did good.
20060217 Fri ASC

then Shawn challenged me 7?/15 gah I was 1st for 10 minites! :)
leaned in too much and he never once fell for a feignt except maybe a coupe, he always caught my attack, and did his repost, so I need to work on my feight attacks make them more real. got one good pressue disengane, a couple coupes, only one good counter, several off, and several bad his point, my point control wasn't great, a few times off by just a bit.
20060208 Wed ASC Epee
did 1st class L1 (a new guy started)

you attack in 4, opponent counter parry's to 6, you roll off the outside, angle toward their hand/arm and hit.
did a few bouts in Epee
then fenced with Shawn a bit in foil, 3/5, getting off balence on my attacks, but did some good hits, better point control, and not bad infighting.
