    Does anyone know if Keele will be running a competition in 2013 and if so whether there are any definite dates for it?

    Many thanks.

    Hi there, I'm the Vice Captain at Keele University Fencing Club so I'll be organising the open this year, there will be an open however I'm having trouble getting the date set in stone as both of the large halls are booked out to Uni Sports Clubs every Sunday, I have a meeting on Monday to see if we can shuffle some of their training sessions around for one week allowing us to run the open so hopefully monday is when I can give all of you guys a definite date.
    It is looking quite likely that it will be run on the first weekend in march but as I say, this will be confirmed on Monday.

    Cheers guys

    Default Date finally set!

    Hi guys, after a lot of dicking around trying to get a hall booked across a single weekend we finally have it done, The date is the the first weekend in March, that is the 2nd and 3rd. I'm painfully aware that just under two months is a very short amount of time to be accepting entries and so we will not be charging late entry until a matter of days before the event (Feb 26th to be precise).

    Entry cost is 15 for one weapon, 25 for two and an additional 5 for late entry.

    Entry form is soon to follow!

    Cheers guys.

    Thanks for that. It's a shame that ME clashes with the Vets Nat Champs.

    I don't suppose you could put the competition form and info on the BF site? I'm wanting to point a few people in your direction and know that not everyone uses Facebook. Currently you have to log in to see the form.

    Thanks.

    Hi guys,

    Glad to see people have found their way to the facebook page. We have now sent details and forms to the BFA and so hopefully we will appear on the calendar very soon.
    I have to apologise for the clashes with Vets National events, whilst I did try to arrange a date with no clashes however we wound up being allocated a weekend that the AU found convenient.
    I'm do not currently have access to a computer (sending this from my phone) but I will post again tomorrow with additional useful information such as bus routes and directions to the sport centre.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with any queries, you can do so on here or by using the email address and phone number on the entry form.

    Cheers guys.

    I don't think so as Harvey Hadden Sports Complex is being refurbished and no other suitable venue was found.

    Whilst the BF twiddle their thumbs, the entry form for the event can be downloaded from here for the benefit of those without Facebook. http://mkfencing.org.uk/images/keele2013.jpg

    This was mainly done for our members but if anyone else wants to make use of it feel free.

    Hi guys. A quick notice, we are very willing to consider group discounts for clubs entering multiple fencers, if you email the club or contact my self either on here or by phone (number is on the entry form) we will see if we can sort something out. There is no set discount, we will consider every group individually but the more fencers you want to enter the better the offer we may be able to make. Cheers guys.

    Default Night Fencing

    Looking at the entry form, it's interesting to note that both WS and MS check in at midnight.

    Hi guys, just to let you all know, the competition along with all the details and entry form is now on the BFA calendar.

    The format of the competition will be the same as last year. There will be two rounds of poules with all fencers proceeding to direct elimination rounds.
