If you pre-register and cannot show up, please remove your name from the pre-registration list IN A TIMELY MANNER (more than 24 hours prior) as a courtesy to others who expect the tournament to run if it has six fencers registered the day of the event. When you remove your name from the list the day of the event THAT IS A NO SHOW. You have just wasted the time and money of others who have already traveled to the venue expecting to compete in a sanctioned event. If an emergency occurs please call or email so we can, if necessary, notify other competitors BEFORE they travel for a tournament they arrive expecting to run.
