If you prepay on Fred and need to withdraw for any reason, you must notify us via e-mail (email@example.com) by midnight on Friday, 11/29, to receive a credit for a future event. We will periodically delete unpaid entries. Brooklyn Fencing members, register and pay at the club for a $5 discount.

Because this is a qualifier, it is open ONLY to members of the Metropolitan Division. If USA Fencing lists you under New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, Alaska, or any other division you won't be able to fence in this event. Fencers representing a foreign country are not eligible; citizens and permanent residents only.
You must belong to USA Fencing with proof of membership in order to compete. Join or renew at http://usfencing.org/us-fencing-membership. If you need to join USA Fencing on-site, you will need a separate check or credit card # for their form. For the one-day membership option, you MUST complete the membership online at usfencing.org ahead of time and bring your e-mail confirmation with you.
National age eligibility requirements will be enforced; however, fencers with points in the next lower age category who do not otherwise meet age eligibility are allowed to fence; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request addition to the competition. (For instance, a fencer with Y14 points will be allowed to fence Cadets.)
This is a USA Fencing and Metropolitan Division sanctioned event. Ratings will be awarded where earned.
One round of seeding pools with 100% promotion to direct elimination; for 12 or fewer fencers, third place qualifying spot will be fenced off.
