Tournament Structure:

All times are close of registration, fencing to commence immediately afterward.

Fencers may compete in only one event per session.

Cadet, and Junior event DE's will be a 15 point bout of three 3 minute periods, with a 1 minute break between each or 8 hits (in sabre).

Cadet, and Junior events will use #5 weapons.

Cadet and Junior events will require legal masks, lames, wires and weapons - only weapons will be tested, the remainder must be adequately functional to the referee’s discretion.

Events require a minimum of 4 fencers to be run.

Event registration will be combined and events will fence mixed, if there are not a minimum number of 6 fencers in each declared gender.


Fees:

These tournaments are part of TFF’s Community Clubs’ training programs.

Fencers pay a $35 entry fee per sanctioned event.

Fees are payable at the event by cash, cheque or e-Transfer to payment@tri-cityfoundation.com (preferred) - please indicate fencer's name with e-Transfer payment.


Tournament Rules:

Some of the items mentioned below may seem obvious, but safety is utmost.

All fencers will be required to:

- wear a fencing jacket, fencing pants with long socks, plastron (1/2 jacket), chest protector (optional for M events), mask and a glove in good condition.

- wear decent, well fitting NON-MARKING runners.

- wear proper-sized, tucked-in t-shirts to insure that there isn't any skin showing between jacket edges and pants.

- use well-maintained weapons in good operating condition.


CFF Licenses:

All participating fencers will be required to have their CFF license (or foreign equivalent) for liability reasons.

Licenses can be obtained at:  www.fencing.ca


Fencing Equipment:

All participants must have their own gear or borrowed from their club.

TFF will have very limited equipment to borrow during the event, so participants must come prepared with “back up” weapons, lames and wires.
