Forwarding information from Edwin Lapitan (SAC) regarding the upcoming NSWSFL Individual Foil Events:
Thanks to St Ignatius College, Riverview (c/o Andrew S) and Barker College (c/o Steve A), the NSWSFL is able to host the following Inter-school Individual Foil competition on these 3 weekends (Edwin Lapitan (SAC) is managing these individual events):
|Date||Event||Age Groups||Venue||Provide No of Fencers||Send Names of Fencers|
|20 Aug||Inter-school Individual Foil||U16||SIC-Riverview||11 Aug||18 Aug|
|3 Sep||Inter-school Individual Foil||U14||Barker College||25 Aug||1 Sep|
|10 Sep||Inter-school Individual Foil||U16||Barker College||1 Sep||8 Sep|
Start time will be 8:00am (we will send venue details a week before the events). So far, our school list is as follows:
- Barker College
- St Aloysius’ College
- St Ignatius College, Riverview
- Sydney Boys HS
- Sydney Grammar School
- Wenona School
- The Hills Grammar School
We are targeting a field of a maximum of 40 fencers for each competition day so it would be great to put an initial cap of 6 fencers per school. If some schools are not able to use the allocation of 6 fencers, we can hand over “unused” slots to other schools who wish to field more than 6 fencers. If you have a lot of Under 16 fencers, an option would be to send some to the first event on 20 Aug and then another set to the second event on 10 Sep. We would appreciate if you can please let me know your numbers and fencer names using the schedule above.
Format will be as follows:
- Mixed genders in both poules and DE
- Regular poules – 5 hits, 3 mins
- Depending on the numbers and timing, we may promote to the DEs only a complete tableau (e.g., if there are 40 fencers and we’re running late, we will only promote 32).
- U16 DEs will be 15 points, 3 periods x 3 mins
- U14 DEs will be 10 points, 2 periods x 3 mins
- No match for 3rd place (i.e., there will be equal thirds)
Please note: As the SBHS Fencing training season is over, this event is voluntary for our fencers.
Please email Mr Huynh ASAP and by Wednesday 3pm at the latest if you would like to participate and indicate which event you want to attend. If there are more fencers interested than the positions allocated, slots will be determined by internal ranking data. Gear can be borrowed from the COLA during Lunch 1 on Thursday.
