Fencing at Grand Central Station in 2004

This is the only picture I could find of this online…small example of what we can do with fencing! This was a great finals for the world cup in 2004.  It was SOLD OUT and people were clamoring outside to get in.

Heading to Carnegie Hall, then to Lincoln Center and finally Hammerstein Ballroom to take a tour and talk logistics for a similar (BIGGER) fencing stage in November!
