Youth Development Practice Round Robins: DESF practice tournaments for youth. This format is designed to assist youth to have a fuller learning experience at fencing tournaments and to address youth events that have had historically low turnouts. The format involves fencers as volunteer mentors to assist in creating bouting opportunities for youth with the goal of developing a stronger local field of youth fencers. For more information, contact DESF at desfcg@aol.com or 207-974-8461.

DESF Practice Round Robins (Adult/Teen): These events may be conducted non-electrically with judges, or with electric equipment depending on availability. These events are sponsored by DESF as practice events for new fencers, or fencers who are fencing for fitness and enjoyment. For more information, contact DESF at desfcg@aol.com or 207-974-8461.

Pre-registration & Entry Fees:

USA Fencing sanctioned events:
Proof of membership for the USA Fencing sanctioned events:
Please show your USA Fencing membership card at check-in for proof of membership. All official members must be on the USA Fencing on-line members list by the date of the tournament. Those without proof of membership or not on the list will need to fill out a written membership form with payment information.

Entry fees:
$20 per event at the door. $15 per event if you register on Ask-FRED by the close of pre-registration on Saturday, 12/15/18 by 9:00 PM. These fees only apply to DESF hosted tournaments.

Youth Development & Novice events: $15 per event per person.

Courtesy of pre-registration is highly encouraged, but those wishing to register at the door are welcome. When appropriate, incentives (i.e., discounted entry fees) will be offered to encourage additional participation in low turnout events to increase fencing opportunities. The tournament manager reserves the right to determine the type and amount of these incentives on an individual event basis.

Awards:
Medals for the top three finishers will be given for each event. Any classifications in USA Fencing Events will be awarded according to USA Fencing tournament rules and conditions. Fencers this season (2018- 2019) will receive points for attendance and placement at our DESF tournaments toward an end of the season prize (Down East Season Point Challenge). Please inquire regarding details of the system. Rules and standings will be posted at each tournament.

The Fencing Flea Market:
DESF will provide tables for a flea market for fencing equipment. Fencers are welcome to bring used or new equipment they wish to trade, sell or donate. Price your own items, or John will be available to help you price any used equipment if you need assistance. Please ensure that the equipment you sell is clean and in good shape. If you are not sure if your used equipment is in good condition, bring it anyway, and we can evaluate its condition. Important: Please provide contact information (name, telephone, e-mail) at the table, so that buyers may be in touch with sellers. Many new fencers may be looking to purchase used equipment for the first time. Contact information is important in case the buyer will want to contact the seller directly.
