Second Annual James L. Melcher Memorial Grand Prix Épée Open

Sunday, April 14 2024

In honor of the late Jamie Melcher, Fencers Club announces the second annual James L. Melcher Memorial Grand Prix Epee Open to take place on Sunday, April 14 2024.

Sadly, Jamie passed away on Monday 17 April 2023. He was a lifelong fencer and member of the Fencers Club where he served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for many years. He was national epee champion in 1971 and 1972 and a member of the U.S. national team for the Munich Olympics in 1972. In 2013 he was inducted into the Fencing Hall of Fame.

Jamie’s commitment and generosity to the club knew no bounds. His extraordinary gift was critical to the purchase of our current facility.

We can think of no better way to celebrate the spirit and the impact of this wonderful fellow member of the Fencers Club than by naming an epee event after him.

The proceeds from this event will be donated to the Fencers Club’s Scholarship Committee.

We hope that you will join us to compete or just to attend and celebrate Jamie Melcher, a talented and dedicated member of Fencers Club.
