A special training tournament for all the fencers. You don't get to pick the teams. I do! (BWHAHAHA!) Teams will be picked in an attempt to ensure competitiveness. Cheap prizes for first AND last place!
FREE for CHFA members. $10 for non members.
The tournament rules are as follows:
1.) HAVE FUN! It's summer... we're out of season. Enjoy yourself.
2.) It's an epee tournament. The bouts will be fenced in standard USFA relay format to 45.
3.) If you're a jerk, you will be kicked out.
4.) I will pick teams in a snaking ladder format. This means that if you're an A rated fencer, you will probably have some...newer...teammates. You should probably try to help them out with their fencing. ;-)
5.) Teams will be of 3. No alternates. We want everyone fencing. We will have 2 folks who will either be dedicated referees or fencers depending on how many signup.
6.) The tournament is round robin and has a hard stop at 4:30pm(ish). If we have less teams and we can pull it off before then, great. But we'll be tired by that point.
7.) We will ref out of teams if none of our refs are available. No cheating. Seriously, it's an unsanctioned tournament. Why?
8.) "Extremely Cheap" prizes will be given to all the members of the FIRST AND LAST(The "Darwin Award")
