Our 100th Foundation Friday tournament will follow a different format than the previous 99 events and provide an exciting opportunity to fence 2 recent Olympians! We will also have prizes for 8 fencers, and smaller "door-prizes" for all participants. The prize list will be posted on our Facebook page as they are gathered.
-Maximum number of fencers is 48. We will close askfred registration after the first 48 entries.
-Pools will be double stripped to expedite first round.
-Top 32 will be promoted to 2nd round.
-The table of 32 will be divided in two.
-Top 16 will fence DE's to number one. 17 - 32 will fence DE's to number one.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place fencers from the higher seeded table will form a team and fence an exhibition relay against a team consisting of former world champion and Olympic gold medalist Andrea Baldini and Croatian Olympian Bojan Jovanovic. Their third team-mate will be a "wild card" fencer. Bout committee will base this decision on what will make for a more competitive and interesting event. We may take the 1st place coming out of the lower seeded table, the fencer placing 4th from the higher seeded table or one of the 4th - 10th of the higher seeded table based on lottery.
