IN ORDER TO COMPETE YOU MUST CHECK-IN BEFORE THE LISTED DEADLINE WITH THE FOLLOWING:
1) a COMPETITIVE USA Fencing membership card (valid for the current competitive season); AND
2) the fencer is required to provide a fully-completed waiver form that has been signed by a parent or legal guardian; AND
3) the fencer is required to show a birth-certificate (copy acceptable) or other government-issued identification showing a birth date unless officially verified by USFA.

To help us speed registration, please have all this paperwork ready at checkin. This is especially critical if the fencer does not have a parent/guardian accompanying them. No one will be allowed to fence without a signed waiver form. Waivers will be available on the who's coming page and can be downloaded for your convenience and and will also have copies be onsite for signature.

Events WILL be mixed if less than 5 competitors in M/W events (i.e., Y10 M/W foil may be mixed). Mixed events will only occur within age category. Event times are approximate; they could change depending on number of entries.

Important tournament information, including any close of check-in time changes, will be communicated through the FRED e-mail system. Be sure your e-mail address is up-to-date. Visit askfred.net then go to "My FRED" to verify your current e-mail address.

Please be aware that athletes that do not check in on time for their event will be scratched. NO EXCEPTIONS FOR ANY REASON. We will not hold an event because you are running late. Be at the venue 1/2 hour to 1 hour before your close of registration. Allow time for traffic, weapons check, and any other unexpected issues.

All times listed are close of check-in, and are subject to change. Time change notifications will be sent through the FRED e-mail system and posted on this tournament home page. Events with less than 5 fencers of either gender will be mixed.
