Any fencer not present at roll call will be removed from the competition. 

Normal registrations will close at 5pm on the Friday prior to the event - insufficient entries at this time (fewer than 4) will lead to cancellation of the event. Entries after this will be subject to late fees. 

Entry fee: $10 normal, $15 late entry. 

Entry criteria: this is an event targeted at adult/late teen beginner fencers who have no (or extremely limited) fencing competition experience. 
Fencers must have been fencing/training/learning for less than two years, and be born before or in 2006 (i.e. 17 and older, or turning 17 this year).

Speak to your coach if you are not sure if this event is right for you - we also have Open B events, and Under 17/20 events for fencers who have been training for longer, or have competition experience. 

Fencers must be affiliated with FSA (either: University Licence, Schools Licence, Participation Licence).
