It's that time of year again - time for a different sort of tournament!
The Bay Area Renaissance Festival will be holding its annual Imperial Fencing Tournament on February 15th and 16th. This is a two-weapon tournament, in which fencers fight in the round, using any epee-bladed weapon and any reasonable off-hand weapon.
Please see the links below for rules and pre-registration! The rules for this tournament are rather different from other tournaments in which you may have fenced, so please be sure to read them thoroughly. Also, pre-registration allows us more time to fence, so please sign up ahead of time if at all possible!
To anticipate some of the more common questions:
Each day is a separate competition, so you may fence on Saturday, Sunday, or both.
The registration fee is $15 per day, and includes two complimentary tickets to the Festival.
This is a dry tournament - no electric equipment needed!
Some examples of off-hand weapons that have been used in the past include: Dagger, cloak, buckler, hat, and (non-breakable!) mug. You are not limited to these, however! If you have an idea for a second weapon you want to use, present it to the tournament director for approval on the day of the tournament.
Pointes-d'arret are acceptable, but not required.
After the tournament is over, we have the space for open fencing, so stick around! This is a great opportunity to fence people you might not ordinarily come in contact with, and play with different styles and varieties of swordplay.
