2019-2020 TRI-STATE VETERANS SABER CUP
This is one of the events in the 6th Annual Tri-State Veterans Saber Cup.
The Cup produced two A2-rated Vet MS events in 2019-2020 and generated 6 A and B ratings (as well as 4 C, D and E ratings), as well as some of the largest Vet WS non-NAC tournaments in the country. Competitors regularly attend from the East Coast and visitors from farther away are always welcome (and can occasionally find a Vet fencer to host those who need a place to stay).
In addition to events in the NY/NJ/CT tri-state region, this year the Cup will add an event in the Washington DC area for the first time!
In addition to individual event awards, the Top 3 MS and the Top 3 WS fencers in Cup Point Standings at the end of the season will be recognized, with awards given at the season's final event. In the case of a tie, the higher ranking will go to the fencer that received the highest number of points in a single event across the Cup. 2019-2020 Cup Points will be awarded to fencers as follows:
1. Points from up to four (4) 2019-2020 Cup events.
2. For each event, participating fencers will receive points based on the number and letter rating of other participants who finish below them:
a. Each participating fencer will be assigned a value based on their rating (A=7, B=6, C=5, D=4, E=3, U=2)
b. Participating fencers will earn points equal to the total point value of all fencers who finish below them, plus 2 points
c. In the case of Vet Mixed Events, MS will earn points for all MS finishers below them; WS will earn points for all fencers (MS or WS) that finish below them.
