Come fence EVERYONE in a Grand Round-Robin Epee tournament!
Concord Fencing Club is pleased to host this unusual and challenging event once again.
The event is organized as a complete round robin, which means that each competitor fences a five-touch bout against every other person in the event. With capacity for up to 42 fencers, that's a lot of fencing, and a lot of fun!
We will follow the NCAA formula:
1) Fencers are assigned to 'squads' of three members each to organize the round-robin activity. After an internal, mini round-robin, each squad is matched against every other squad in turn.
2) Upon conclusion of the Round-Robin, DEs will be held for the top four places. Remaining places will be decided based on Round-Robin results (Victories, indicators, etc.).
Note: If the full capacity of 42 fencers is reached, we expect that this event will require approximately 9 hours to complete (9AM to 6PM). This is a rough estimate only; please plan accordingly.
