The Last of the Year 2022
The Last of the Year
Friday 30th December at The Pavilion, (Totnes Leisure Centre)
Work off some of that Christmas indulgence and enter a Poule Unique
For 5 hits and then you stay on the piste and do a One Hit – so 2 competitions. Prizes for the One Hit will be provided by the sponsors’ website – salago.co.uk
The Totnes Leisure Centre,
Check in from 10.15am and starting from 10.30am
The format will be that everybody fences everybody. Any weapon – but if the competitors cannot agree, then it is epee. For sabre and foil you will need to grab someone to referee – epee you can agree to do it yourselves if you are both happy with that and do not wish a timed fight.
The competition will be limited to 24 entrants and we will be fencing over 8 pistes, with each fight for 5 hits. If the entry is less than 15, it will be 10 hits and you could then agree to split the fight over two weapons. The procedure is quite informal, you can challenge in your own time and then fight on one of the four pistes. After the fights, please enter the results on the computer.
While the competition starts at 10.30am, being a poule unique there is some flexibility, and you can check in after this time, but the cut off will be 11.30am.
If you wish to warm up, we will have access to the space from 10.00am. If you are running late – number on the day to phone is 07900 324455 (Josh) 07956 391751 (Jim).
The competition is open to anyone who is a paid-up member of Newton Abbot Fencing Club or who has BF recreational or full individual membership. There is a nominal entry fee of £5, and each competitor is expected to bring a prize – bottle of wine, chocolates, unwanted Christmas present etc. Hence ‘bring a prize – win a prize’.
Open to fencers who e 13 or over on 30.12.22.
Full white gear must be worn, 350N Jacket and Breeches, 800N Plastron
After the event – probably around 3pm - we can drift over to The Seven Stars for a snack and a drink and to socialise verbally instead of at t
he end of a sword!
The event is part sponsored by salago.co.uk – the website that is ‘just different’
