2015 Okawa Three Weapon Open At UCLA

Hello, 
Just a reminder that the UCLA Fencing Club is hosting the Okawa Three Weapon Open on the UCLA campus this April 12. With a potential A4 in mixed epee and A2's in mixed foil and sabre, this years event looks to be one of the most competitive tournaments in Southern California this year. Additionally, we are introducing separate women's foil and sabre events to compliment the existing women's epee event.

Nethercutt Car museum

We have been talking about getting a group to go see the Nethercutt Car museum in Sylmar. Fantastic cars and one of the world's greatest collections of mechanical musical instruments (player violins, a whole band in a giant player piano, etc. ) Did I mention FREE? Perhaps a Friday in March or April. Anyone interested and have a desired or impossible Friday?
