I am in the process of putting together the qualifying tournament for the Northeast Division (clubs and fencers in Maine and New Hampshire) for the Summer National Championships in July. The qualifier will be on the weekend of May 22 & 23, and will be at the Rochester facility.

These are for the Cadet (birth year 2004 to 2007), Junior (birth year 2001 to 2007, and Div 2 & 3 (2007 or earlier).  All three meets will have six events: Three men’s events- Foil, Epee, & Saber; and three women’s events- also Foil, Epee, & Saber.

These events will determine who is allowed to go to the Summer National Championships, this year in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 3 thru 12.  The top three (or top 25% of the entries, if that is more) in each event will qualify.  You do not need to intend to go to the Nationals to participate in these qualifiersIf you want to fence the other members of other clubs in the Northeast Division, this is your only opportunity to do so until next September.

Please email me at cjpullo@gmail.com if you are considering entering any, or all of the events.  This will help me organize the meet that weekend.  It may be on one day, or both days.

Please let me know before this Saturday, April 24.  You will not be entering anything at this point, just letting me know if you think you will want to compete on May 22 and/or 23.
