Time To Renew USFA 2016-2017 Membership

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Greetings to all San Bernardino Division fencers, and fencers visiting our website.

It’s time to renew your USFA 2016-2017 membership.  This is just a reminder.

I would suggest you renew online.  Just go to the USFA website, click on Membership, create a profile and your own password, fill out the membership form, pay for it, make a photo copy and print out your own membership card.  Voila, you are done!

Of course, the bout committee will take membership forms at our Division tournaments.  But, it is a good idea to create your profile and password and print out your membership card.

The first tournament will be held at College of the Desert, Saturday, September 17, 3-weapon open.


San Bernardino Division 2016-2017 Fencing Schedule

Monday, July 11th, 2016

Hi to All,

I am currently working on the 2016-2017 fencing schedule for the San Bernardino Divison.
The first tournament will be held at College of the Desert on Saturday, September 16, 2016, 3-weapon open, then Saturday, October 15, 2016, at College of the Desert, 3-weapon open.

I am interested to know if the lady epee fencers would like to have their own epee competition.  Instead of competing with the men, we can hold a ladies epee competition.  We would need at least six women to make a pool.  Of course, more ladies are welcome!

I’d like to know if there is any interest.  If there is interest, we’d schedule close of check-in for the women’s epee competition at 11:00 a.m., with fencing to commence at 11:30 a.m.

One item, there would be no cross-over to fence in the Mixed Epee event.  If a woman does want to compete in the Mixed Epee event, she may, but only that event, no cross-over.

If there is interest, let me know.  Email me at  And I will post the event on when I get ready to post the schedule for the season.
