The Fete de Lune is Texas' longest continually held veteran fencers' tournament. As with past years, it will feature an awards banquet, novel awards and grand prizes by Nicole Trojanowski for the best male & female 3 weapon fencers.
Note: The venue has shower & changing facilities for those who wish to change after fencing for our dinner but are too far from home or their hotel. We will have a few extras in the soap, shampoo, towel department for those who decide last minute.
This year the awards dinner will be held at Perry's Italian Grill. This will be in the same room as last year. Here is a link to the restaurant's website:
