As per USFA’s requirement, face coverings must be two-layer cloth masks or surgical face coverings.

Fencers may bring a small tripod to record their bouts or stream to an outside party but placement of the tripod may not be in any place that will cause a safety concern or hinder the running of the event.

Cost Information: Registration Fee = $10 Event Fee = $40 per event Walk-In Fees (After May 3rd) Registration Fee = $50 Event Fee = $120 per event Please note that your registration is NOT considered complete until your payment has been made. If you are listed as an incomplete registrant on FRED’s list, you WILL be charged the walk-in event fee. Tournament Format: These events will have one round of pools, with 100% promotion into a direct elimination table. While fencers may fence in more than one event on this day, they should realize that they do so at their own risk. Each event will run independently and there is a possibility that you may be called to strip for a bout in more than one event at the same time. Fencers MUST report to the strip when called. A word of caution: If a fencer starts one event and decides to withdraw from that event to fence in the other event, the fencer will be given a Black Card and disqualified from the first event. Additionally, the specified breaks in between bouts are for that event only. If you fence in more than one event, it may be possible for you to have to finish one DE bout and then immediately fence another (in the other event) without a break in between. The more people that fence, the more that qualify!
