Cary Zitcer 1956 - 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce that Cary Zitcer died suddenly at the age of 60 on 8 October 2016.
Cary was a well-known sabreur, having fenced internationally at junior, senior and veterans level. He was a member of the current BF Honours Committee, Chairman of St Paul's Fencing Club in London, and part of the team that delivered the recent European Veterans Team Championships.
BVF extends its condolences to his family and many friends.
If anyone would like to send reminiscences or photos of Cary then I will add them to his Obit page - John Mason

Vets events such as the European or World Championships have a similar rule: your qualifying age is your age on December 31st this year.
