Registration/Check-In

For faster check-in we will have two scanner stations set up at the registration desk. These are similar to scanner checkins you may have used at national events. Having your scannable USFA membership card ready for quick & easy event check-in will significantly speed up check-in for everyone. We will also have manned registration stations for anyone having trouble with their cards or the scanner. If you are doing multiple events, remember that you must check in for each event separately, approximately one hour before close of registration for the event.

Thursday Evening Armory The armory will be open for equipment check from approximately 8 pm to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday evening, for fencers with events early on Friday morning. The armory is downstairs on the court level, to the left of the entrance to the gym. There is an elevator on the (upper) entry level, to the left of the venue's front desk. The armory will open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at 7:15 a.m.

Live Results Live results, including initial seeding, will be posted on www.FencingTimeLive.com

TripAdvisor's favorite Round Rock eating spots - many of these are are in shopping area just across the street from the Sports Center, within easy walking distance:

The nearest full-service grocery store is H-E-B, located approximately 10 minutes from the Sports Center at 250 University Blvd, Round Rock, TX 78665

Travel to and from Austin Bergstrom Airport The Round Rock Sports Center is approximately 22 miles from the Austin airport. If you are traveling to or from the airport during rush hour, or if you have a tight timeline for making your flight home, consider taking State Highway 130 as an alternative to I-35. SH 130 is a toll road and is longer route (in miles) between the airport and the venue, but traffic levels are considerably lighter than on I-35. At rush hour the I-35 route can increase your drive time by 30 minutes or more over the 130 option. Check with your car rental agency before deciding on your route, to see if they impose any significant surcharges for toll road travel, which is charged electronically to the vehicle (i.e., no need to stop to pay at a toll booth, just drive on through). The 1-35 route is fine during non-rush-hour travel.

Vendor Blue Gauntlet is the equipment vendor for the Austin Challenge.

Trainer For fencers in need of basic first aid during the event, the trainer room is beside strips E3/E4.
