US Points at Canadian Elite Circuit Events

US Points at Canadian Elite Circuit Events

Post by Donald La » Fri, 20 Aug 1993 23:19:20

I spoke yesterday with the person aresponsible at the United States
Fencing Association for national level tournaments and the rumour has
now been confirmed - US fencers will be able to earn points at
selected Canadian tournaments this season.  The rationale for this is
the late scheduling of the Senior N.A.C. tournaments this year - the
first North American Circuit (or U.S. Circuit as we in Canada like to
call them) does not start until January 14 in San Francisco.  Therefore,
the first Canadian Senior Elite Circuit competition in each weapon will
count for US points.  All of these events are in the fall:
