We will be providing transportation between the I-25 & Broadway RTD Light Rail station and the venue at Denver Fencing Center on all days of the tournament. It will help us keep the schedule running more smoothly if we have an advance idea of how many fencers are planning to take the train and will need a ride. Please email the "tournament organizer" via askfred, or contact me directly at 720-598-6159, and I'll send you some instructions on how to arrange a pick up at the station.
Here is a link to information about Denver light rail, and the RTD map. The light rail line between Denver and the airport should be open by the time of this event.
Taxi service, Uber, and Lyft are also all available options in Denver.
36 Hours in Denver, compliments of nytimes.com:
The city of Denver offers a multitude of activities that will be of interest to visiting fencers and their families. Restaurants and micro-breweries are varied and plentiful. Take the RTD light rail to the Denver Performing Arts Center, the 16th Street Mall, the Tattered Cover Bookstore, the Pepsi Center, Coors Field, the newly opened History Colorado Center, the Children's Museum, and the Denver Art Museum. REI�s flagship store, with its four story climbing wall, the Downtown Aquarium, and Elitch Gardens amusement park are about 1.3 mile walks from the downtown hotels and RTD stops.
If you wish to range a bit further, The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is a can�t-miss attraction for lovers of all things dinosaur. Next door to the Museum of Nature and Science is the Denver Zoo. The new Elephant Passage exhibit recently opened. See denver.org for detailed information about even more events and performances.
