RDF is pleased to announce we’ll be hosting Equinox Epee, our 2nd tournament with USA Fencing-sanctioned events, on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at Hillside Elementary in West Des Moines.

Events Scheduled:
9:30 AM – Open Mixed Epee
12:00 PM – D & Under Mixed Epee
2:00 PM – Y12 Mixed Epee (Unsanctioned)

Times listed are close of registration. We recommend fencers arrive 40-60 minutes before close of registration to allow time for check-in, warm-ups, and a few practice bouts. Fencing will begin 10-20 minutes after close of registration.

Format will be the usual pools (groups of 5-7, fence each person in the group to 5 points) to direct elimination (15 points for open/D & Under, 10 points for Y12). Fencers ages 13 and up may fence in the Open and D & Under events. Fencers 12 and under may fence in Y12.

USA Fencing competitive membership is required for the Open and D & Under events, but not Y12. (Unsanctioned basically means that the results don’t count for any sort of points or ratings in the USA Fencing system.)

As always, spectators are always welcome and it’s free to watch.
