Dear Fencer 1st January 04

This letter contains the final details for Pisa 18th January 04.

We will be travelling out from Gatwick North Terminal on Saturday 17th January at 08:55 on flight BA2600, please meet at the British Airways check-in desks at 07:30. Do not be late.

We will return to Gatwick North Terminal on Monday 19th January at 14:05 on BA2601. Please make sure you are being collected or have arranged your own transport.

You will need to bring:

Your passport
Your British Fencing or equivalent licence (British Fencing say you must be a junior member to fence abroad)
Money for food when you are travelling (your 2 evening meals & food at the competition are included in the price you have already paid for the weekend.)
An E111 medical form
An alarm clock
Your fencing kit. You will need FIE equipment for this event, 800N jacket, breeches, plastron, 1600N mask, S2000 blades. Your lame jacket, overlay, & mask must be in good condition to pass the weapon control, you must have shorted sabres. (If you do not understand any of this paragraph ask your coach, do not ignore it & hope no-one will notice.)

We will be staying at the Hotel Granduca in Pisa:=
Via del Brennero, 13 i-56017 SAN GIULIANO TERME (PISA) www.hotelgranduca.it Tel +39 050817782, Fax +39 050818811

The list of fencers, officials, & parents who are travelling is with this letter.

Hotel & evening meals.

Several of you (fencers & parents) are travelling separately from the main group. If I am booking accommodation for you, you will need to send me a cheque for the correct amount BEFORE we travel. Cheques must be payable to “Cadet Sabre”.

The costs per person will be as follows:-

Saturday night B&B & evening meal £40
Sunday night B&B & evening meal £40

Please check the attached list of hotel room allocation, if you’re not happy with any of it tell me before we travel so I can make changes. The principle is all fencers & adults travelling independently have rooms allocated. If you arrive before us you must share according to the plan to avoid any confusion.

The competition is at:-
Centro Sportivo Comunale di Bientina (Pisa)

Final check-in: 08:30

British fencers travelling independently please arrive at least half an hour before check-in.

Individual fencers do not need to check in, I will do all the admin but will need your licence.

Please remember you have signed a code of conduct governing your behaviour over the whole weekend. Please reread it if you have forgotten what you have signed. If you have lost it please let me know & I’ll let you have another one.

There should be fencers or adults supporting at the side of the piste whenever a British fencer is on. This means if you are not fencing you should be looking for other British fencers to support, you are travelling as part of the British squad so we expect this from all fencers & adults.

If you are an adult accompanying this trip remember you are there for the benefit of the fencers. If you are not sure what to do ask me or your child’s coach. You can see a guide for parents & fencers I have been working on at www.fencingcoach.net, please read it all carefully. Make sure you understand the implications & the rules of a possible dope control (this applies to any major fencing event).

The officials in charge of the trip (Neil Brown, Charlotte Brown, Peter Wright) are there for you, the fencer’s, benefit - if you want help/advice/support you must not be afraid to ask.

When you are at competitions in the UK you should read the Sabre Club noticeboards every time. If the ranking list has a blank in the “Have I got your address” column write your address in the space provided. Similarly if I have not got your date of birth or it is not correct.

Contact me, preferably by email, if you have any questions.
