Find live results at http://www.usfencingresults.org

It’s the largest fencing tournament IN THE WORLD! The 10-day long fencing event taking place in Columbus, OH is the US Summer Nationals. Back in the day, I used to fence 5 events in a variety of age and level categories. But this year, Fencing For The Edge is here to film interviews and fencing from the largest fencing tournament in the country. And you can participate!

We’re setting up in the room off from Strip H-2 and want to hear from fencers, parents, referees, coaches, staff, and fencing fans about why they started fencing, what they like about it, and how fencing can expand throughout the USA. We have a local Columbus crew and will be filming from 10-6 on Friday and Saturday this week. So share your stories with us and help spread the word about fencing!

Happy Independence Day!

Submitted Grants and More

This has been an especially exhausting week for pre-production on the film. I have submitted to several big film grants all while filming at the District 4 Championships and one match of the Sweet 16 for the girls last night. Whew! But each step is moving the project forward and I can’t be happier about that. Next up, preparing for Junior Olympics.
