Where in the World is the Men’s Saber Fencing Team? Plovdiv, Bulgaria!

We’re off to Europe again! 

We returned last Monday from a 14 day trip to Budapest and Moscow and after a short week of sleep, training and seeing friends and family we’re back to it!

This time we’re headed to Plovdiv, Bulgaria for another Grand Prix.  This trip has already had some interesting quirks.   We originally booked Luftansa tickets, but they went on strike so our flight was cancelled.  Then we booked Air France through Paris and found out two days ago that air traffic controllers are striking in Paris so finally we got our tickets yesterday through Rome on Alitalia!

Making the trip for the US are Ben Igoe, James Williams, Daryl Homer, Andrew Fischl, Mike Etropolski and and myself.
