Cool Fencing Picture of the Day: Happy Birthday Marco Tricarico!

Italian fencer Marco Tricarico has a birthday today!

He has spent the last 4 weeks in NYC doing a (working) vacation.  We’ve been fortunate to have him helping us with the Fencing Masters NYC.  His energy and work have been invaluable!

He will head back to Italy next week to begin training with the Italian National team as they prepare for worlds.     THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK MARCO and HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY!

The Team Behind the Fencing Masters NYC! (And a website sneak peak)

I have to give a huge shout-out to the team of folks working on the Fencing Masters NYC with me! We’ve been hard at work (for 4 months now!) building the behind-the-scenes infrastructure to launch this tournament! (2,000 seat arena and to be televised on Versus)

I seriously can’t wait!  WCMG (Jed Weinstein, Sarabeth Janney), an event planning company, that has done boxing events on ESPN amongst other things has been working tirelessly with us fencing folks (Daria Schneider, Jeff Spear, Marco Tricarico) to get this thing rolling!
