Hi Guys,

In order to give our BUSA team a kick up the backside before the start of the season, ULU Fencing club are organising a friendly team event for Saturday 14th October. The forum won't let me attach the invitation letter, but I have done a copy and paste job below. Please get in touch with any queries.

Dear Fencer,

ULU Fencing Club would like to invite you to a team competition to mark the end of our summer program of events for fencers around London.

The event will take place on Saturday 14th October and will be structured for teams of 3 fencers plus one reserve (optional) in each weapon, and will be fenced using the Italian Relay system to 45 hits. Ideally we would like to run separate menís and womenís events, but this will depend on entries received.

Entry fees will be £6 per team per weapon, and the closing date for entries is Tuesday 10th October. Late entries on the day will be at the organizerís discretion and will be subject to a late entry fee of £10 per team per weapon. Fencers should be BFA members, and all equipment should conform to the current BFA clothing standards for electric fencing. Fencers are responsible for their own equipment, and fence at their own risk. The organizers accept no responsibility for any personal loss or injury during the competition.

There will be a full dayís fencing for all involved, with no early eliminations, so you will get excellent value for money.

The competition will take place in the Upper Hall on the 3rd floor of the main ULU building, at the address at the top of this page. Check in will be 10.30am to 11.00 am with the fencing starting promptly after close of check in.

If you are unable to get a team together but would still like to take part, please get in touch with your name and which weapon(s) you would like to fence and we will try and make up a scratch team for you.

To enter, please email your team name, whether it is a menís, womenís or mixed team, the weapon(s) you would like to fence and the names of your fencers to club@ulufencing.net You can also enter by post by sending these details to the above address. Entry fees will be collected on the day.

As with all ULU Fencing events, the competition will be fenced with a fun and friendly atmosphere and there will be an obligatory social afterwards.

We hope to see you there!

ULU Fencing Club
