Tournament schedule change
The league has moved our second tournament from 8 October to 15 October in order to avoid conflicting with Yom Kippur. The tournament will still be at North Springs. The 2011-12 Tournament Schedule has been updated.
The other early October tournament (at Northview) is still scheduled for 8 October. Fencers scheduled to be at that tournament but who are observing Yom Kippur have been invited to join us at North Springs.
The bottom line is that Pope is fencing on 15 October at North Springs.
The league has clarified that tournament hosts must provide at least six strips and should allow pools as large as seven. With six schools at each tournament, that means that each school is guaranteed to be able to send at least seven fencers of each sex. If the host provides more than six strips, or if some schools have less than their guaranteed number of fencers, then the larger schools (such as Pope) will be able to send more than seven fencers of each sex.
League waiver forms
Also, the league has sent us the waiver form that they require all fencers (or their parents in the case of minors) to sign. I’m afraid this is in addition to our club’s waiver form. Please download it, complete it and bring it to practice as soon as possible, and certainly before your first tournament.
