Come early and fence a special one-touch epee event prior to the main event. This will be similar to the fencing competition in the Olympic modern pentathlon, with a round-robin of one-minute one-touch bouts (like the overtime period of a regular epee bout) and no DE. Multiple rounds will be fenced if necessary so everyone will get plenty of bouts. Main event will be the standard pool/DE format.
Tournament is at our 5,900 square foot Bucks County location convenient to Philadelphia, New Jersey, and other mid-Atlantic and metropolitan areas with air conditioning and heat. We are proud to hire professional, SafeSport-screened referees. Eleven permanent strips including two Olympic-style aluminum fully grounded strips, state-of-the-art sprung floors, overhead reels, dressing rooms, armory, and Absolute Fencing Gear pro-shop on-site. Comfortable viewing/lounge area with free wi-fi and snacks for sale. Restaurants, ATM, and shopping nearby.

REVISED NO-SHOW POLICY effective 8/2015
In order that we can continue to hire sufficient professional referees, Liberty Fencing Club is enforcing a new no-show policy for the 2015-16 season. If a fencer fails to check in for a tournament he or she is preregistered for, or if the preregistration is cancelled less than 48 hours before close of check-in, it is considered a no-show. If a fencer no-shows more than once in a season or calendar year, he or she will not be permitted to register for subsequent tournaments without prepaying, and prepaid fees will be forfeited if the fencer no-shows again. If three or more different fencers from a club no-show during the year, LFC reserves the right to require prepayment from all other fencers from that club.
PAYMENT POLICY effective 8/2015
Pre-payment of tournament fees is not required except as per the no-show policy above. Prepaid fees will not be refunded in the event of a no-show or late scratch. If the fencer cancels registration more than 48 hours before the tournament, pre-paid fees may be applied to a future LFC tournament. Pre-paid fees (excluding FRED charges) will be refunded if events are cancelled.
