Registration Closes at 11:59 the Wednesday before the event.
Events Scheduled (close of registration) for Sunday, 9/23:
Y12 Mixed Foil 9:00 am
Y10 Mixed Foil 12:30 pm
Y8 Mixed Foil 2:30 pm
The above times are NOT start times! Events generally start fencing about 30 minutes after close of registration. First events of the day may start sooner.
Doors open about 45 minutes before the close of registration for the first event.
Fencers planning to fence two age groups are advised there may be some overlap between events (for example, you may have to fence some Y12 DE bouts during your Y10 pool if you're doing well in the Y12s). Directors are used to this and will not scratch your bouts if you're fencing in the other event; however, fencing in two events is your choice - please be ready to fence a few bouts in a row if need be to keep your events moving.
