FENCERS MAY ONLY FENCE FOR ONE EVENT AT THE TIME. IF YOU PRE-REGISTER FOR 2 EVENTS IN ONE DAY, IT WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE WILL NOT REGISTER FENCERS THAT ARE STILL FENCING ANOTHER ACTIVE EVENT AT CLOSE OF REGISTRATION AND REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED.
CHECK-IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DAY OF EACH EVENT The competition portion of the venue will open for fencers at 7:00 am each day of the tournament.
Fencers must check in each day that they compete, within the indicated hours of check-in, or they will be withdrawn from that event.
IN ORDER TO COMPETE YOU MUST CHECK-IN AT THE COMPETITION FLOOR OF THE VENUE BEFORE THE LISTED DEADLINE WITH THE FOLLOWING IN HAND:
1) the fencer is required to show a USA Fencing membership card (valid for the current competitive season); AND 2) the fencer is required to show a birth-certificate (copy acceptable) or other government-issued identification showing a birth date UNLESS THEIR MEMBERSHIP CARD INDICATES THAT THE BIRTHYEAR IS VERIFIED.
New USA Fencing memberships and new or replacement USA Fencing cards should be obtained through the USA Fencing website before the tournament.
Athletes arriving without proof of USA Fencing membership must fill out all appropriate forms and pay for membership at registration even if already a member. Refund requests can later be made with USA Fencing as appropriate.
Fencers who fail to register by the published deadline will be removed from the event and refunds will not be made.
UNIFORMS REQUIREMENTS All USA Fencing uniform requirements apply. NAMES ARE NOT REQUIRED ON THE UNIFORM. Conductive bibs are required in all foil events.
EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS AND INSPECTIONS
Equipment check will be open each day of the competition. Equipment check will test the mask, lame jacket and foil mask bib, gloves and body cords. Items that have passed inspection will be specially marked. All events are conducted with electric equipment. A preliminary check will be conducted at the beginning of each pool and DE bout to ensure the presence of Underarm plastron, 2nd weapon, and body cord, weapon check control marks. Athletes are subject to prohibition from fencing if these conditions are not met.
Failure to have the proper number of working weapons and other equipment at the strip is subject to penalty according to relevant USA Fencing rules.
Parents and fencers should expect significant lines for equipment check. Please plan accordingly. Equipment check will open every day at 7:00 am. We will provide opportunities to check the equipment prior to the event, details to be communicated on a date closer to the event.
Note that The Fencing Post will be on site to sell new equipment and repair services, but fencers ultimately are responsible for having all necessary equipment in working order.
POINTS, RATINGS, AND SEEDING
Seeding for all events is based on current national rolling point standings according to age group and weapon, then letter ranking within year classification. Fencers with equal classification will be randomized among themselves.
We will use ratings and points standings that have been forwarded to and accepted by USA Fencing in advance of the tournament and then downloaded by us from USA Fencing.
Point Standings: http://www.usfencing.org/current-point-standings Rating Information: http://www.usfencing.org/current-member-list
This information will be obtained from USA Fencing on Monday, March 5. Any discrepancies regarding classifications or points earned must be resolved by this date.
It is the fencer's responsibility to notify the Bout Committee of any discrepancies before the close of check-in and before pools are posted.
