Columbus NAC Saturday

Columbus NAC Saturday

Originally uploaded by readwl.

Yes, That’s Ed, Josh, and myself standing in an oversize Longaberger basket at the Columbus Convention Center. In addition to the fencing, there was also a Longaberger show of some sort. I didn’t realize this ahead of time, but I had been to the CCC twice before for some anime conventions with Jenny and Ant. We were there to check out the North American Cup (NAC). I didn’t get an official count on the number of strips, but it was probably close to forty, all grounded sectional aluminum. We’d watch some fencing here, then go walk over there, then back. During the down times in fencing we’d head over to the vendors where I spent all kinds of crazy money ($400 for the club and another $100 on myself). I got a USFA tie which I had wanted since last July, and some new fencing equipment because some of mine was broken.

Other than that I had a good time hanging out with Josh and Ed, the two fencers who are going to Denver in a month to compete at Junior Olympics. I hope they learned a lot about national level events. The three of us stopped at the Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner on the way out where our server was Beth, but her name tag read “Dave”. We quickly surmised that “Dave” must have been the left umm… “chest region” and that the right side must have decided that it no longer agreed with name tags. So it was “Beth and the Dave twins” which made for the basis of funny conversation all the way home.
