Fencers 17 years of age or younger must have the waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian at registration.

Fees can be paid in cash, check, PayPal, or Venmo at the registration table.

Masks and gloves will be checked during registration. Each fencer must have an extra body cord (mask cords where necessary) and an additional weapon near the strip. All foil fencers with chest protectors must comply with the soft cover rule. Fencers competing in multiple events on the same day should check in for all events at once. P-Card rules will be used in situations of noncom.

The Venue will be open at 7:30 AM.

Parking is reserved for tournament officials and competitors next to the UAH Fitness Center.

We will be setting up concessions for small snack items at the tournament, and fast food centers are present in a half-mile radius.
