*Edited 10/18/19: Sabre has been changed to a three weapon relay. The rules for the tournament will be posted down below. The rules may be subject to change before the tournament so please be sure to check them periodically.

All participants will have to sign a waiver before partaking in the tournament, you do not need a USFA membership to compete.

This is a dry tournament! Although you may use your electric weapons there are no scoring machines and the bouts are visually judged.

If you arrive late we may be able to squeeze you into the pools. However, if you arrive after the pool bouts have ended then we can't fit you into that section of the tournament.

Each event is done one at a time, meaning when we finish one event we move onto the next event.

If there are any questions please contact me here: redhatroger0@gmail.com

General Rules:
1. Do not argue with the referee!-the refs we get are volunteers and will not tolerate a rude fencer
2. No yelling on the strip.-screaming after receiving a touch is obnoxious, we aren't at the Olympics or world championships so there is no need to like you are.
3. The clock doesn't stop for anything.-each bout is five minutes long and time will continue to expire even when the director calls halt. So I would reconsider arguing for points.
4. No pistol grips in small sword.-you can only use a french grip in the small sword tournament. However, you can use any kind of grip you choose in the other two tournaments.

Epee and Dagger Rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RmUIjtBOzwL4HcKGfC3SK8ypvheaKDYgTaLeO7meslw/edit?fbclid=IwAR2BfIh1SNMm2bQ7W_pcEUU6N1T8mjkhtZ3EiP7g5zp1Z1nnNKZgSFwNUds

Small Sword Rules:
-To make your own small sword you will need a size 0-2 epee blade and attach it to a french grip and foil guard.

Three Weapon Rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18HfKSblpfsB22gXgFWXGnlTKovTyS-CXz_YLIhmYZYg/edit?fbclid=IwAR3liJKZmAEOitThJ84Kybg8sVXUpGf0NWtMtRHkDV9LWQfGJ6dtL-GIR_I
