2017- A Year of Loss, Yet A Year of Growth
In the spring of 2017 Kyle Maysel (one of our greatest supporters) passed away unexpectedly. In July of 2017 we hosted another US Fencing Association sanctioned tournament, The Kyle Maysel Memorial, named after him. This was held in conjunction with Justin Meehan's referee seminar. Grace renewed and improved her Fencing Official's Commisssion rating, while Micheal earned his fencing referee rating for the first time. We also were in 2 parades, The Barefoot on the Beach Mardi Gras in Port Aransas, Texas and the Buccaneer Youth Parade in Corpus Christi, Texas. Two of our fencers demonstrated at the Polka Fest, and an opportunity at Sunrise Mall lead us to a new home there, too!
