Capital City Fencers' Club presents the 11th annual Fence-a-Thon, a twelve-hour, overnight fencing marathon to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation.
All events close at 7pm, when fencing will begin. For this reason, fencers must choose only one weapon to fence before midnight - after midnight, you can fence anything you'd like!
Each event costs $25 and all money raised will go to the BC Cancer Foundation to help support cancer care and research in British Columbia. Additional donations are gratefully accepted, and pledges from family and friends can be made here: http://donate.bccancerfoundation.com/goto/fence-a-thon. All donations in excess of $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.
Your first Fence-a-Thon? Here's how it works:
7:00 - All events start fencing. All events are run mixed and fencers must choose one weapon for this part of the event.
12:00 (or when the last tournament ends): Midnight Feast provided by the fencers and families of CCFC
1:00am Start fencing again til morning! We may hold team events, marathons, or our famous Flepeebre team relay.
7:00 All fencing stops, total bouts and scores are added up, and we hand out some great prizes.
Yes, we said prizes -- and they are seriously excellent! First dibs on our fabulous prizes will go to our top fundraisers, then the winners of the events and those who have had exceptional nights fencing after midnight.

Please preregister early to help us to know how many prizes to look for and how much food to cook.
This event is being run unsanctioned and all fencers are welcome to attend, regardless of whether they have a CFF or USFA license. It's a great chance to get a lot of fencing against some strong competitors!
