DFA held a mini epee tournament on Saturday, September 25, 2021.
Eight fencers in all, making the event an E1 rated tournament.
After several years away from the competition arena, Jeff McLaughlin returned.
Two first time competitors, Gary Kautz and 15 year old Collin Amick (his brother, Ian, competed in the mini saber tournament held on Saturday, September 18).
Seventeen year old Paul Zappia took 1st place and earned his E21 rating in epee. The weekend prior, Paul’s younger brother, Peter, took the gold and earned his E21 rating in saber.
There was heart-pounding excitement and thrill-a-minute touches in each and every fencing encounter!
