The tournament will determine the revived Central Region fencing champion. Anyone can enter the tournament, as there will be prizes for overall winner, Central region champ, and also a prize for the top ranked entrant from the local Shire of Quintavia.
Exact format will be decided based on the number of entrants, but be prepared to bring out a single sword, an offensive form, and a defensive form if you are authorized in them. The format of the tournament will skew towards using all forms and on minimal downtime for MOST FENCING.
All are encouraged to watch the finals of the equestrian games.
Court setup will occur immediately following the finals of the equestrian games, with court beginning at approximately 4:30pm.

$30 family cap
(these prices have been reduced to reflect the fact that this is a picnic event, and then the kids were reduced by another dollar because frankly it's just easier to deal with round numbers for change, and since youth are the future of our society we're willing to lose a dollar per kid to keep them in the game!)
