How to Enter
First, make sure you are an affiliated member of FencingWA using this link. You need to do this even if you don’t enter competitions; it’s mentioned on your Excalibur membership form. If you intend to enter national events (e.g. this year’s Under 15 and Cadet Championships), you can also use this link to pay for AFF capitation.
Here is the direct link for entering next weekend’s events.
The cost of entry is free for Under 13s and $15 for Under 15s, with late entries at $30. The deadline for normal entries is 10 PM on the Sunday before the event (in this case Sunday 27 March), with late entries closing at 10 PM on the Wednesday before the event (in this case Wednesday 30 March).
Make sure you turn up early and fully equipped for competition! This means full safety equipment including breeches and long socks. For Under 13 Foil, the event will be non-electric and foils will be available for loan but for all other events you will need to bring full electric equipment. Ask Andrew or another senior member of the club if you are unsure. A copy of the FencingWA Competition rules for 2016 can be found here.
