My sis in Da Ville shot me a message stating that she was leaving Louisville later tonight to take part in the 2010 USFA Summer Nationals Championships fencing tournament in Atlanta.
It started fittingly on July 4 and will be running through July 13 at the Georgia World Congress Center
She's currently ranked number 6 in the nation amongst the 'Baby Vets' in Veterans 40's women's saber. In the veterans combined saber rankings, which ranks the Vet 40's and the Vet 50's 'Senior Mamas' together, she is number 9 in the nation.
There is also a Vet 60's and Vet 70's women's saber division in which my Da Ville friend Lou Felty is tied for the Number 1 ranking.
Dawn's competing on Thursday and Sunday in women's saber, so if you're in the Atlanta area and curious to see what a fencing match looks like, hop on the MARTA and roll by the Georgia World Congress Center.
You can cheer for her and the rest of the 'Baby Vets' and 'Senior Mama's'.
Good luck sis!
