The 2017 Keystone State Games

The Keystone State Games took place July 29-30 at the Utz Center in York. The fencing results are posted on AskFred.

Incidentally, we learned from the KSG organizers over the weekend that the games will be leaving York in 2018, possibly relocating to the Poconos area of Pennsylvania. That would place them outside the Harrisburg Division, which means we expect to relinquish our role in organizing the fencing events.
