After the disappointment of 'only' coming 3rd in his age group and 33rd overall out of 53 competitors in the BVF National Championships, Peter Baron, together with his wife Janet attended the event dinner. There they were surprised by the award of a glass plaque in respect of "outstanding service to BVF". Whilst Peter was on the BVF committee for 8 years and was the initiator and named organiser of the BVF West Midlands Open for 10 years, it was recognised that it was a joint undertaking with Janet and recognised the work both had done in other ways for the organisation over some 30 years as members of the NVA, which became the BVF.
At the Veterans' World Championships, in Cairo, Petr baron received two certificates from the FIE. The first was to mark his 15th participation in a World Veterans' Championships (achieved the previous year). The second was rather belated - a replacement one to mark his 10th participation, the original never having made it to him.
Sadly there was less to celebrate about the actual fencing in Cairo.
