This is an invitational tournament. First refusal goes to previous participants, who will be sent invitations. Once we know who/how many of them are coming, organizers will consider others.
Please do NOT pre-register if you are not certain you will attend. There are only 16 slots available!

REGISTRATION FEE: $40.00 (includes entry to the wine-tasting)
All fencing fees to be paid in CASH!
This event is limited to fencers 21 years of age or older. The registration applies to the wine-tasting, which begins for each fencer upon being eliminated, and the prizes. First place wins four bottles of their choice of wines. Second place wins three bottles. Third place (tie) fencers win two bottles each.
Non-fencing guests are welcome and may participate in the wine-tasting ($10.00). Those only participating in the wine tasting do not pre-register on FRED, but may message the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org simply to let us keep a good estimate of our numbers.
Fencers should know in advance that, due to space considerations, the fencing pistes will not be of regulation length. (The current best guess sets them at =/< 10 meters).
This event will be held outdoors (open pavillion, fabric roof over a concrete slab) with an outdoor bar nearby.
If the weather does not cooperate we will be reduced to just drinking wine!
The event will max-out at 16 fencers. Please do not pre-register if you do not think you can attend. Please do not pre-register if you are younger than the legal drinking age in Texas.
Pre-registration acceptance priority is given to fencers who competed at any of the previous Bruno Invitational through Saturday, February 13th. After that open spaces will be released on a first come, first serve basis.
Due to the unique age & strip restrictions, no letter classifications can be awarded.
Preregistration opens on 01/14/2019.
Preregistration closes on 02/28/2019.
