Location:       The Fencing Center, 40 North First St.
                San Jose CA  (408) 298-8230
Event:          3-member team foil, using the current team format
Check-in:       10AM check-in close
Entry Fee:      $40/team

There will be team trophies as well as assorted prizes.  The top 3 finishers
will also be given medals for each team member.

Individuals may attend and we can form teams from among the individuals.  Also,
clubs are allowed to field as many teams as they wish.

The event will be round-robin to direct-elimination.  3 fencers per
team and will fence as in the current team format:  Running score, change
fencers when one or the other fencer reaches the next multiple of 5.  That is,
after one fencer reaches the score of 5, both fencers step down and another
pair hooks up.  Score is whatever was from previous encounter.  When one of
these two new fencers brings the score up to 10, they step down and the
third pair begins.  First team to 45 wins.

The consensus from many fencers who have participated in this new format is
that it's a helluva lot of fun.
