The Purdue Open was this weekend. It is always an interesting beast to me. The Fall one is almost always better attended than the Spring, but the Spring one is always better organized.

This year, looking at pictures that the other fencers took of the event, it made me miss fencing. I don’t know that I’ve missed it before now. I thought about getting back into it, wondering where I might find a good fencing home around here. Really it was about the people.

I could spot Big Joe Landin in his black socks from a mile away. I knew the twist of Sam Noonan counter attacking. I knew the call of Josh Williams. It is more fair to say I missed the people, and that fencing was the vehicle we all car pooled in.

Beep beep.
