You are entering a mixed tournament, unless we have enough registrations to separate the poules by gender.
We will consider running separate gender poules with a minimum of 6 fencers per poule. Anything less is at the discretion of the DT on the day, as is the poule format, which depends on numbers.
The earlier you sign up the earlier we can say.
No responsibility is taken by Fencing North if the server slows down because you left it until the last minute.
There are no refunds unless we cancel the event. If you wish to apply for a discretional refund please contact the DT who will forward it to Fencing North. Refunds can be given in case of injury or crisis. We have been quite lenient in the past and will continue to do so if it is not abused. Remember we have to plan and pay for your event whether you fence or pull out.
Please check on Friday before the event to see if the timetable has changed. Please let us know if you are late for the event. We can help, if we know.
Every fencer is expected to help with set up and taking it down at the end. We fully understand that that is disruptive for competitors, so we do accept family members and friends helping instead.
