Saturday, December 21 Tournament at COD

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Hi to All,

We are looking at a very good turnout for our December tournament.
Thank you to everyone who has pre-registered and is coming.

We will be checking masks and gloves. Sam Signorelli will be at the tournament for armory repairs.

If we do not have 6 women for women’s foil or epee, the ladies will fence in the mixed foil and epee events, if they choose to do so.

Please enter College of the Desert via the Fred Waring entrance.
That way, you will by-pass the Street Faire located on the Monterey side of the campus. You may park in Parking Lot 5 directly in front of the gym. Parking is free and we leave the back door of the gym open for easy entrance. Fee is $10 per weapon.

We look forward to seeing you all!
