Our traditional August Chase tournament has move to September to follow-on from the international Fencing Flashmob on 18 September (Sunday). This event is for all Salle members, including our Musketeer epeeists. We have new rules for a very different format tournament with team matches and awards for individual performance. The time flow is
1:00 pm – the Flashmob. Be early as we start this at exactly 1pm, and we have to divide up our members into 3 person mini-pools, get everyone out, and get a series of quick bouts fenced in each mini-pool. We will be on the esplanade, the uphill paved area fronting the building.
approximately 1:30 pm – the Flashmob and first round of pools finishes, and we retreat indoors to start the team matches of the August Chase.
approximately 2:30pm – the Chase finishes and we adjourn for our fall social meeting, food, and awards.
The international Fencing Flashmob was developed by the Italian Fencing Federation, adopted by the International Fencing Federation with clubs participating all over the world, and incorporated as the core of USA Fencing’s National Fencing Weekend. We are proud to have this opportunity to be part of a worldwide fencing event.
