Help A Local Youngster Get to the Junior Olympics

By Will | Jan 9, 2009

Connor, the son of Doc and Paige who so tirelessly work to keep the fabulous music forum that it is, has qualified for the U.S. Fencing Junior Olympic Championships in Albuquerque, NM next month.

They are accepting donations to help cover the considerable expenses of the equipment and travel required to compete in this prestigious event. Please consider visiting the information page and donating to this worthy cause. If you’ve not been and donated yet, then I’ve already beat you to it and you can consider this a challenge! Thanks!

    Thanks very much Marsha! Here’s to hoping 2009 is even better than 2008 and that the kids don’t drive me completely insane!

    Hey guys, just wanted to say a HUGE THANKS for helping us get the word out and raise money for this. Connor competed in both Under 17 and Under 20, and did very well for his 14 years and less than 2 years of fencing experience, especially since he was up against 19-year old college fencing team members from places like Princeton! He came out ranked the #153 fencer in the US under 20, which we are VERY proud of.

    Thanks again, and we wish you guys much success in the future!

    Doc and Paige,

    Doc- you’re welcome! From reading the boards over at Wicked Tickle, it seemed the whole community was rooting for Connor and was determined to make this thing happen. Glad ya’ll made it out there, and congrats to Connor for working so hard and doing so well against a more-experienced group.
