We will be holding our semi-annual Beginner's Tournament on Thursday, November 13th during regular practice time (6:30 PM). The tournament is a great way for everyone to get familiar with tournament procedure, scoring, reffing, and general sportsmanship. It is also free, doesn't require a license, and is not sanctioned, so the results won't have an impact on your ranking. Registration is limited to foil fencers who have been fencing for LESS than 1 year, and/or who have not fenced for at least 7 years. I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone register, the beginner tournament was one of the most memorable parts of learning to fence for me, even though I didn't come close to winning!
Speaking of winning, a gold-bladed foil will be awarded to the 1st place fencer, so make sure you're practicing against a good number of opponents to get an edge on your competition.
