August 2017 UpDate

Hi to All,
We are closing in on getting our November, December, February and March tournament dates approved and confirmed by the host venues.

The first tournament of the season will be Saturday, September 16, 2017 at College of the Desert. You may pre-register on All confirmed tournaments for our San Bernardino Division have already been posted to AskFred. You may pre-register for all of them.

Please remember to fill out your USFA membership form online and bring proof of membership to our tournaments.

If anyone, coach, fencer, parent, coming to our San Bernardino Division tournaments also happens to be a certified referee, with a rating of 10 to 1, would you please let us know when you present yourself at the Bout Committee table when you check in.

Due to the new USFA rule, all Division tournaments must have at least one rated referee and any rating, from 1 to 10, is acceptable.

You will not be called upon to referee every single bout!!! But just let us know you are fencing, your rating and in which weapon. This sanctions the tournament in case there is a rating to be awarded.

We really appreciate this. We know that many of our Division fencers, and out-of-division fencers, have been working on this.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in September!
