This is our traditional club holiday event, consisting of an open-open fencing tournament (any age, any rating), and a judged competition in making our favorite holiday cookie - SNICKERDOODLES!
The event is limited to our current members and alumni, and to our friends who train at other clubs (you know if you are one; if you are not sure, drop us a note).
The fencing tournament is not sanctioned. Everyone is invited to compete. This is our in-club event, but all of our friends with home base in other clubs are welcome.
Fencing starts at noon. We'll be there at 11:30 in case you'd like to warm up a bit first.
Finals in both senior and junior events are fenced with mask lights, very much like the finals of the World Championships and the Olympic Games!
Club's fencing equipment - jackets, masks, gloves, and epees - is available to all, at no charge.
We'll give holiday-appropriate prize (who said "gift card to a chocolate factory"?) for the best senior, and the best youth performance.
Your inner baker is challenged to a home-made snickerdoodles judged competition. If you bring snickerdoodles, limit one entry per family, please. Bring 3-5 for judging, and some for others to taste.
The winner gets prestigious title "Delta Fencing cookie master" for 2019, and a highly-sought responsibility to preside over the next years bake-off. It is club's favorite holiday cookie, after all.
Senior epee: men and women, 13-and-above
Youth-under-12 epee: boys and girls, 12-and-younger
Fencing event only: $10
Fencing event, with snickerdoodles entry: $5 (hopefully this encourages you in case you were questioning your inner baker)
There is additional $10 fee for those not currently signed up (not attending trainings & classes in December)
Preregistration is open until the end of the day on Saturday, Dec 22 2017.
