There is an Unsanctioned Tournament in Apex on April 9, 2022 for Y10, Y12, Senior Men’s Foil, and Senior Women’s Foil. Coach will be out of town, but if anyone wants to get, make sure you talk to coach to make sure you have equipment put together.

Sanctioned Tournament May 7-8 at Apex tournament. Not sure yet Coach will go to this one yet, but Men’s and Women’s foil events are on Saturday, and there is a Mixed Division 3 Foil on Sunday (only for fencers with D,E, and no rating). If you’ve been actively competing, especially if you’ve already done a sanctioned event at our club, this is a good tournament to get your feet wet into doing sanctioned events without a Coach present, it’s not that far away. Again, let me know so we can have equipment ready for you. Pre-register at https://askfred.net/Events/whoIsComing.php?tournament_id=49746
