Registration fee: $20
Event fee: $15
FENCERS: Each event is capped at 24. You may enter as many events as you like. All fencers must be at least 21 years old and members (competitive or non-competitive) of USA Fencing.
FREE BEER: Each entrant will receive one beer token with paid registration. You will have to wait until you are eliminated from all events before you can begin to partake, though.
GUESTS: Non-fencing guests can buy the beer of their choice directly from the bar (opens at noon). The venue will be open to the public all day, so it's a chance for us to show off our skills to an outside audience! There will also be food trucks to help you maintain energy and (later) absorb alcohol.
PRIZES: First place in each event wins three crowlers (growler-sized cans) of their choice of beer, second place wins two, and third place finishers win one. The best overall three-weapon result also wins three crowlers.
VENUE: Eureka Heights Brew Co (http://www.eurekaheights.com) is a large warehouse with a taproom, beer-making, and a events area. We'll be in the events area. The brewery is not air-conditioned but is protected from sun and rain.
UNSANCTIONED: Due to the age restrictions, this will not be a sanctioned US Fencing event and no letter classifications will be awarded.
Preregistration opens on 10/18/2018.
Preregistration closes on 12/13/2018.
