International Sabre Fencers to Compete in Chicago

This weekend in Chicago hundreds of sabre fencers from all over the planet will be competing in the Korfanty World Cup sponsored by Absolute Fencing Gear. This is a rare opportunity to see international fencers just a couple of hours from home. Friday, May 3, will be the preliminary competition, and Saturday, May 4, will be the direct elimination rounds. Sunday, May 5, will be the team competitions, similar to the team competitions in the Olympics.

Tickets for the event are only $4-$6. The Korfanty World Cup will be hosted at the Flames Athletic Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago. If you can be there, I strongly encourage you to attend! For tickets and more information, see the event website at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/346885. Also, since Absolute Fencing is a sponsor, I’m certain that they will have vendor tables set up so you can shop for your own gear while you are there.
