Canberra Fencing League - Foil
The league concludes for 2019 with foil, bouts starting in early October! The standard format will be used, with the three categories fencing in bouts to five up to thirty hits. Teams that wish to be in the championship can make changes to their teams if they wish, either by swapping people’s categories around or by changing one person in their team’s lineup.

Fees: Team entry will be $60.
Cutoff: Teams may enter on the webpage. The cut-off date is October 3rd, afterwards a late entry fee of $20 will be imposed. This is to ensure the competition can be organised in advance of the first day.
Substitutes: If a team has an absent fencer they may find a substitute. If no substitute can be found the team will forfeit all available points for that fencer’s bouts.
If the fencer was to be on for the first bout their team would lose five hits.
If the fencer was to be on in a later bout it would be assumed that the fencer lost every hit.
Competitive fencers may only substitute in for club fencers if the opposing team agrees to it.

Rules and Referees
Fencers will have to arrive with the expectation that they shall have to self-referee and respect the referee’s decisions.
A fencer may appeal to have a second referee, although with the expectation it will slow things down.
If both opposing fencers are in agreement over a hit they can overrule the referee.
ANU equipment rules apply at the 'club' level. Details can be found here. Fencers not from ANUFC must be at least registered with their home state for insurance purposes.
Standard FIE rules apply to the running of the competition except where stated otherwise here.
