The surrey one hit, is just to one hit.
My thought is that maybe as a 5 hit event, it could possibly be included as an official open and then count for ranking points etc.. Who knows..
If someone wants to really make a full days fencing, how about a 'one-hit' Pentathlon style poule unique event, but to 5 hits.
Would mean no one gets knocked out and everyone gets a full days...
The Coach is insured, however if one fencer runs another through with an Epee, then the fencer is not covered personally, so could be sued directly.. In addition any club membership covers club...
The BF membership gets spread over all the competitions that the fence in a year, it is an individuals choice whether they go to 1 or 5 competitions a year (or more).
Including that point in your...
I like that we have lots of events in the UK with different formats and levels so that fencers can choose which events to attend and which they prefer not to.
World Cup type format...
However surely there must be more that 13 men's sabreurs (Over 13 to veteran) in Glasgow/Edinburgh, let alone Scotland. If the local scots are not supporting the event wholeheartedly, surely you...
But who takes on the financial risk?
BF will not want to, a club does not to take the risk in case of something going wrong and I know it can.
The Elite Epee Junior Series started because...
I think that the rule is actually possibly right for mens epee, where entry numbers this year are well over 250 entries (one event over 300).
For Men's Sabre which had only 150 odd at one event,...
Entry up to 55 fencers, NIF to 195
Now higher NIF than all opens this season apart from Miller Hallet and Elite Epee Autumn
The NIF system however puts pressure on organisers to run events well. For Men's Epee for example the highest NIF events are consistently the ones with all roll out pistes, decent boxes, fully...
Date is certainly 20th Feb, same as it is on British Fencing Calendar.
Not sure where EF get their dates, I thought it was linked to BF website, but obviously not.
At one point we did have a...
Looking at their website - www.escrime-ffe.fr
There is a long list of 'partners' who must be doing something to support the federation in exchange for getting the advertising, though I am unsure...
11 entries in total today. Entry at 50% capacity. NIF up to 170 already.
This event is looking like it will be one of the top 3 NIF Opens of the season..
Lawson, Stanier & Bryson got through 64, but all out in 32..
McCarthy, Gundry out, 4 to come up.
=1 seed after 1st round, Danielle Lawson GBR.. All Vs 3,3,3,1,1,1. Good start..
Nebsitt out to other No 1 seed, Nabeth FRA 15-7.
Other DE results not up yet.
Entry up to 44 with NIF up to 137 (provisional, based on current rankings).
Entry up to 39 fencers with a NIF of 102.
61 spaces still available..
Suspect there will be a run on entries in the next few days as I have been reminding people of the upcoming event.
I guess BF could have just said 'will be £5 more as a basic fee, however a £5 discount if paid by the preferred method', then a discount.
All in the wording, but no different. One off payments...
Does the French Federation have a sponsor, as this is what BF is lacking now, which has caused the financial problems?
In addition the French fencing population is huge compared to GBR.
Was totally gripped by the story, had heard it before, but this documentary was heart wrenching and heart warming at the same time..
I feel honoured that I met Nicholas Winton at the Eden cup when...

This is great. It will certainly mean that fencers/parents can go to events and have a far better idea of what to expect.
The old LPJS site had - 2. Fencers to have two rounds of pools, the results of which will be used to seed for the subsequent direct elimination. The exception here is for under 9 fencers who will be...
