[Ansteorra-rapier] Too much?

OK, I disagree with you.  I just plain don't see these free range
fencers who are lighting up the rapier scene, yet not being noticed.
Sometimes I think we have the opposite problem, that every eligible
fencer takes a red scarf the moment it seems appropriate, but that may
be a matter of perspective.

However, I do acknowledge that there is some way I could have missed
seeing them.  Probably only if they go to fewer than 5 events per
year, especially if they're going to rapier events, but it is
possible.  So I will make you a deal.  If you will advise me as to
these people, in private, I will promise to watch them at the next
tournament we are both at.
