      Please come and join us for a fantastic time of fencing in Prescott, AZ! We are certain that you will enjoy the fencing, and are sure that you will have a great time in this beautiful, historic city.

      We will be hosting ten events this year. We plan to run the event on eight strips.

      Fencers must show proof of a USFA membership for the 2013 - 2014 season in the form of a current USFA membership card or a letter from the USFA office. Membership application/renewal forms will be available at the venue. Fencers who are unable to present proof of membership may be required to fill out a new registration form and submit payment (which will be refunded or cancelled as soon as membership is verified with the USFA national office).

      Other details:
      Registration at the door and check-in will open at approximately 9:30 AM on Saturday and 8:30 AM on Sunday. Events with fewer than six fencers preregistered may be cancelled at the organizers' discretion. The event format for all events will be one round of pools with 100% promotion to a direct elimination table. The initial seeding for all events will be based on rating and year.

      Y12 and Y14 foil fencers will fence together. Fencers born between 2001 and 2004 are classified as Y12 fencers, and fencers born between 1999 and 2002 are classified as Y14 fencers. Medals will be awarded to Y12 and Y14 fencers separately.

      Please note that conductive bibs and associated equipment are required for all foil events. Also please note that due to scheduling concerns, the Open Epee Team event will be limited to a total of eight teams. Composite teams with fencers from multiple clubs will only be allowed if the event is not already full on the day of the event. Please register early to ensure your spot in this event.

      Equipment check will consist of a visual inspection and 12kg punch test for masks, lame conductivity test, and body cord test to be conducted prior to the start of the event. Weapons will be checked at the strip. Foil and epee weapons will be subjected to the 500g and 750g weight tests respectively, and epee weapons will be subjected to the point travel tests. Fencers who present non-working or untested equipment to the referee at the strip will receive an applicable penalty card.

      In consideration of the fencers traveling long distances, registration will close promptly at the times listed. Please plan to be at the venue at least 30 minutes before the close of registration for your event.

      Preregistration will close at noon on August 30, 2013. New registrations will be accepted at the door but will be subject to a greater registration fee as noted.

      We are privileged to welcome Dan DeChaine as our tournament armorer this year. In addition, he will be hosting an armorer's clinic the day after the tournament, September 2nd, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at a nearby location. Please contact the tournament organizers for more information, as space will be limited for this clinic.
