 ﷯ Dear Friends, On behalf of the International Fencing Federation, I am happy to welcome you at the European Championships, which will be held in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, this year. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of this tournament. Continental championships, including the European Championships, hold a special prestigious place in the international fencing calendar. The European pedestal is a great achievement for any athlete, given that fencing in Europe has traditionally been at one of the highest levels in the world. We expect fights of beauty and principle, which will be enjoyed not only by professional fencers, but be interesting to the wide audience as well. The European Championships 2017 will be held in Georgia, a country that has always been rich in sports talents and given the world a number of great blade masters such as Vladimir Aptsiauri, Nugzar Asatiani, and Guram Kostava. I believe that this tournament will facilitate further fencing development in Georgia. I would like to express my gratitude to the Georgian Fencing Federation, the national and Tbilisi sports authorities, and the European Fencing Confederation for their great work to organize the tournament, which I am certain will be held to the highest standards. Alisher Usmanov President of the International Fencing Federation ﷯ Dear Friends, On behalf of the European Fencing Confederation I am glad to welcome all the participants, coaches and guests of the European Championship. In its own right the tournament is one of the major in the international calendar and the uppermost in the European one. The best Fencers from the all around Europe come here to cross swords to find out who is the strongest in the continent. Given the level of European Fencers competence and ambitions we are in for thrilling and beautiful duels. As a rule, the first post-Olympic year sees new stars rising. Hopefully this championship would launch more fencers to stardom too. It is for the first time that the European Championships is held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Tbilisi. The Georgian capital is famous for its hospitality in this country and far beyond. I am sure that all the participants and guests will be able to feel it and to appreciate the high level of the championship organization. To the athletes I wish spectacular victories, to coaches – every kind of success to their charges, to champion guests and fans – a store of favorable impressions. Stanislav Pozdnyakov President of the European Fencing Confederation ﷯Dear Admirers of Sport and Fencers, On behalf of the Fencing Federation of Georgia and myself I am glad to welcome all the participants and guests to the European Senior Fencing Championships and the EFC/CEE Elective Congress, which will be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, 11-17 June 2017. It is a great opportunity for us to host elite world fencers, coaches and staffs. Georgia has a rich fencing tradition and it is our strong intention to further develop. This requires solid will, hard work and up-to-date sports infrastructure. By organizing an event of such a level Georgia will become a new spot and a new fencing destination on the broad map of the world fencing. This will be the highest level of completion for our country, because today Tbilisi is a large cultural and economic center – not only of Georgia – but for the whole Caucasus. Many universities and colleges, scientific and medical centers, ultra-modern sports facilities, other entertainment venues, and cultural centers are in this city. The Government of Georgia, the National Olympic Committee, the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs of Georgia, and the City Hall of Tbilisi express full support to this initiative. We can assure you that in 2017 our Capital Tbilisi – one of the World’s oldest cities – will be your cordial host. Zaza Mchedlidze President of Georgian Fencing Federation ﷯ Dear Presidents and representatives of the European federations in Tbilisi, I take it as a special privilege for me to welcome you all to the 2017 senior championships and the Elective Congress in Tbilisi. Coming again to the capital of Georgia will remind us about the well organised U-23 championships in 2014 under the former leadership of two of their well-known personalities: Archil Gogelia and Youri Ossipov. And now Zaza Mchedlize together with David Sakhvadze will prove that this still can be topped by starting the new Olympic season. I am looking forward to see this happen. With regard to the congress: the special task is to elect a new Executive Committee and to finalize the new statutes which were discussed at our last congress in Torun, updated by a working group, and which should bring them in harmony with the FIE statutes. This will demonstrate again that Europe is one of the leading fencing confederations. I wish us all successful working days in the year of our 25th anniversary. My special thanks go to all members of the Georgian Fencing Federation and their volunteers who will show us that this federation is capable to organise such big events with love, enthusiasms and professionalism. Max W.F. Geuter General Secretary EFC/CEE ﷯Dear Guests, On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 2017 European Senior Fencing Championships, I would like to welcome all participants – European elite fencers, their coaches and all other guests, also the Presidents of the European National Fencing Federations, who will visit Tbilisi to take part in the Elective Congress of the European Fencing Confederation. I assure you that our picturesque capital city Tbilisi will be your gracious host during the Championships, and each of you will return to your home countries with great impressions and memories. As for the Championships, I also assure you that it will be organized at the highest level. I wish you success insporting achievements andbrilliant victories. As for me, I truly believe, that Georgian fencing lovers will be honored to witness great and thrilling fencing performances. With kind wishes, David Sakhvadze President of the Organizing Committee Secretary General of the Georgian Fencing Federation
