� USA Fencing rules apply. http://www.usfencing.org/athletes-usa-fencing-rule-book

� Fencers are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all posted information and must report errors to the bout committee immediately. This includes club affiliation, division, classification, date of birth, gender, the spelling of a name, etc. Errors in posted pool results must be reported to the BC immediately (within 5 minutes). Once DE round starts and tableau is posted, the pool results are final and no adjustments will be made. Check all scores before leaving the strip. Fencer signature on pool sheet and DE slip imply accuracy.

� Seeding for pool round is based on the Current National Ranking according to age group and weapon, regardless of classification, then classification/year, then fencers with neither points nor classification. Fencers with equal classifications/ points will be randomized within each classification. Only ratings and points standings listed on the USA Fencing website at the time of the tournament will be used. Current ratings: http://www.usfencing.org/current-member-list. Current point standings: http://www.usfencing.org/current-point-standings

� Each event consists of two rounds (pools and DE (direct elimination).
Pools: One preliminary round of 5 and 6 or 6 and 7 person pools comprised of the standard 5-touch bout in 3 minutes. 100% then advance to direct elimination round.

Direct Elimination: DE tableau shall be comprised according to the results of the preliminary pool round. Fencers are seeded by their results in the pool round wherein the results of fencers in all the pools are ordered by best results to poorest results: the highest ratio of victories vs. bouts fenced, touches scored vs. touches received.

� No fence-off for third place; Medals awarded up to 8th place.
� Photography and filming is allowed, however, NO flash photography is allowed near ongoing competitions.

Withdrawal:
� Withdrawal during pools: The pools must be fenced through the last bout. A fencer who withdraws, or who is excluded, is scratched from the pool, and his results are annulled as if he had not taken part.

� Withdrawal during DE: When for whatever reason a fencer cannot fence or cannot complete his bout, his opponent is declared the winner of that bout. A fencer who withdraws does not lose his place in the overall classification of the competition.
