Three excellent opportunities to watch

people in masks and tight-lilting

costumes whacking each other with hits at metal. It’s OK, they enjoy it. The Inter-Section event at Falkirk on Saturday 30 November involves toil, epee and sabre teams and the young blades lrom DingwaII who make up most at the North Squad look unstoppable. Only real challenge to North comes Irom East, whose streamlined sabreur, Colin Young (‘the relrigerator') will be emphasising his Commonwealth team claims. (On the subject otwhich, a proposed deal with the new fitness centre at the Highland

Carlton Hotel, Edinburgh could provide the Scotland team with unrivalled training lacilities in 1986.)

The Men‘s-Foil Teams, at Boroughmuir School on the lollowing Saturday is a club tournament. Actually it will be pretty dull by comparison with the One-Hit Epée at Meadowbank the next day. Virtually no rules, with the Iirst hit deciding each tight-a hundred competitors in a tension-tilled ongoing lite-or-death situation, where, to quote a certain US President, ‘When the going gets tough. the tough get going'. (Mark Ellis)

Davie Cooper could even turn out for this one.
