2018-2019 TRI-STATE VETERAN SABER CUP
This is one of the events in the 2018-2019 Tri-State Saber Veteran Cup. 2018-2019 will be the 5th season of the Cup.
The Cup regularly produces B1-rated Vet MS events and some of the largest Vet WS on-NAC tournaments in the country. Occasionally, tournament organizers will add a second aspect — a clinic the day before or a Senior Open MS or allowing women to also participate in the MS event (ie, make the MS event a Mixed Saber).
Competitors regularly attend from the East Coast and visitors from farther away are always welcome (and can occasionally find a Vet fencer to host those who need a place to stay).
In addition to awards for each individual tournament, the Top 3 MS and the Top 3 WS fencers in the 2018-2019 Cup Point Standings at the end of the season will receive awards.
2018-2019 Season Cup Points for each fencer will be calculated as follows:
1. The sum of that fencer’s 4 best results across all 2018-2019 Cup events (if they compete in 4 or fewer events, all of the fencer’s results will count).
2. Points awarded to fencers at each event will depend on their finish and the number and letter rating of other participants in the event as follows:
a. Each participating fencer will be assigned a value based on their rating (U=2, E=3, D=4, C=5, B=6, A=7)
b. Each fencer will earns the number of points equal to the total value of all the fencers who finish below them, plus 2 points.
c. In the case of Vet Mixed Events, MS will earn points for all MS finishers below them; WS will earn points for all fencers (MS or WS) that finish below them.
