BBO Foil Rally, 1st December
He had planned to enter three teams, unfortunately this event proved very popular and only one OFC team appeared in the entry of 22. Heloise Hardie and Shaw Worth, with Maria from Thame Duellists, joined forces to compete under the team name of Tang-Tastic and applied festive tinsel to their masks. Our team had five team matches over the course of the day, winning three of them and losing the other two just 4-5. This left our intrepid trio in 7th place overall. Great fun was had by all.

Hertfordshire LPJS, 24th November
What a difference a week makes! Heloïse Hardie cruised through the single poule round only dropping two hits. This set-up an easy route through the direct elimination rounds until the final. After a motivational chat from one of the other fencing dads Heloïse held her nerve: the score went 7-2, 7-7, 8-8, 10-8. Gold! A great way to finish the year and Heloise's participation in the under-13 age group.
