NOTE: Registration has reopened. Triple fees will begin August 26th.
There will be a referee clinic held by Mark Stasinos Thursday and Friday evening from 5-9PM. Thursday evening will be at Fencing Institute of Texas, 1000 West Crosby Road, Suite 134, Carrollton, Texas 75006; Friday evening has been requested to be at the Venue. You must attend both sessions; however, for those who are out of town and unable to attend Thursday in person, we will use Zoom this session. The fees for the clinic are $100; if an attendee renews or earns a rating at the Roundup, $50 will be reimbursed. More information and signup is on Askfred: https://askfred.net/Clinics/Prereg/prereg.php?clinic_id=48490
NOTE: The venue will be open for equipment inspection Friday 6-8 PM
Fencers may have two spectators (parents or siblings) plus their coach in the venue. Fencers will be emailed a form to complete naming their "Plus Two and Coach." All persons inside the venue must wear a COVID mask at all times; fencers are required to wear a COVID mask underneath their fencing mask. If you cannot comply do not register for this tournament. These protocols and tournament requirements due to COVID-19 may change at anytime. You will be notified through your USA Fencing membership portal if there are additional requirements.
Self-monitor and be symptom-free for at least 14 days prior to tournament. Stay home if you have had close sustained contact in last 14 days with anyone who was sick or known or believed to have COVID-19. Stay home if you are sick or do not feel well.
Changing in bathrooms should be restricted, so you will need to come dressed to be able to comfortably change in other areas (socially distanced in the venue or outdoors).
Agree to temperature check on arrival. Any individual with a fever of greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, will not be admitted and will be asked to leave the venue immediately.
Everyone in the venue must wear a surgical or double cloth mask covering nose and mouth at all times when in the venue; no gators or bandana style masks are allowed. The only exception is when eating or drinking, or when socially distanced from any other person by a minimum 6 foot diameter to catch your breath. There is no exception to this requirement. We cannot accommodate those with conditions that would preclude wearing a mask, so anyone unable to wear a mask should stay home. Any person refusing to wear a mask will be subject to penalty under offenses for Disturbing Order On Strip, or Disturbing Order Off Strip, as appropriate.
Everyone must practice social distancing. Refrain from contacting other participants and attendees (handshakes, body contact, etc.). Referees will not have fencers sign, but will give the fencers an opportunity to verify their score(s).
Fencers must remain in designated seating areas when not actively fencing. All warm-up activity must be done in designated areas. Plus 2 and Coaches should restrict crowd buildup and maintain social distancing.
