The 2018 Battle in Seattle
January 27-28, 2018

The Battle in Seattle is the Western Washington Division's largest annual event, drawing fencers from all over the country. As part of the Regional Open Circuit (ROC), the Battle offers fencers the opportunity to earn points towards qualifying for the Division I-A events at Summer Nationals.

The top 40% of finishers in each event will earn Division I-A ROC points. Veteran fencers that compete in these events will automatically qualify for the corresponding veteran event at Summer Nationals.

Where are the veteran events?!? The vet events have been split off as a separate registration, please sign up here: https://askfred.net/Events/moreInfo.php?tournament_id=38616
