Craig’s been to the Temple Open and has fond memories of overnight van rides and Philly Cheessteaks.

You know the fencing season is kicking off when the Temple Open rolls around.  The Temple Open is one of the two largest pre-season tournaments for NCAA fencers and for the growing host of Collegiate Club fencers.

This year the Temple Open marked it’s 30th year.  Quite an accomplishment for the University and a continued benefit for collegiate fencing.
