Brigadier

Ouch

A week off from fencing doesn't sound like a lot but it certainly felt like it last night. Embarassingly high number of flat hits on Ed as he took me apart 15-8. Also had a couple of close ones with Grant, losing 15-13 and 15-14 but again I could see my point going even wilder than usual. Bah. And to add insult to injury, the usual pub was closed so we ended up in some poncey place across the road. Well, at least it had bottled Spitfire.

Definitely got too many hobbies. Grant's off to the Nottingham Open this weekend but I'm off to the UNIT Planetfall lasertag game. I think I'm going to bail on The Men They Couldn't Hang in Kettering as they'll be at the 100 Club on the 16th (although that's the night before the Invicta competition and there's also a re-enactor's fair on that weekend too...). I believe this weekend is also a LOTNA meet. Next weekend is airsofting at the Epsom bunker on the Saturday and Fort Widley on the Sunday with a clashing militaria fair in Chatham.

Now, for this UNIT game, do I do 70s UNIT (wooley pully, brown beret, white grid pattern badge) or Battlefield UNIT (DPM, blue beret, winged globe badge)? Decisions, decisions...

[Edited to more accurately catalogue all my clashing event, academic though it is...]
