The original and flagship tournament of the Green Mt Division. Something for everyone: youth, veterans, unrated and open events. Foil on Saturday, epee and sabre on Sunday. You may not enter events which start at the same time.
Note: unrated mens and womens events may be combined if there are fewer than 6 of one gender.
Youth events are open to kids in both the Y10 and Y12 age groups (combined) and do not require USFA membership.
All other events (open, veterans, unrated) do require USFA membership or the Canadian equivalent.
Electric foil masks are not required for youth events; they are required for all other foil events.
Also: food, raffle, t-shirts...don't miss the party!
Entry fees: If registered by March 5, $15 for your first event of the weekend plus $5 per additional event. If registered after March 5, $20 for your first event of the weekend plus $10 per additional event.
For those traveling from afar: Hospitality can sometimes be arranged in the homes of local fencers (living within 15 miles) on a first come first served basis. Contact me if interested, at least 2 weeks in advance. If you would prefer to stay in a hotel, here are some possibilities:
The closest hotel is the Marriott Courtyard (http://www.middleburycourtyard.com).
The Middlebury Inn (historic inn in center of village) sometimes has lower prices than the Courtyard, and more character: http://www.middleburyinn.com
Less upscale and also nearby are
Greystone Motel http://www.greystonemotel.net
Sugar House Motel http://www.sugarhousemotel.com
If you want to treat yourself to more luxury, try:
Swift House Inn (http://www.swifthouseinn.com)
Inn on the Green (http://www.innonthegreen.com)
Waybury Inn (http://www.wayburyinn.com), in East Middlebury, famous as the set for the Bob Newhart show (for those of you old enough to remember...)
Or, my personal favorite way to travel...there are several AirBnB guesthouses within 15 miles of the venue.
