There has been a discrepency in the bylaws concerning the scheduling of events in August. It was discussed at the last division meeting to change the scheduling deadlines to make things more fair for college clubs and make it easier to get tournaments sanctioned in August. We are going to have a trial run of this proposed format. Clubs wanting to host a sanctioned tournament in August can now submit their request by June 15 to have them approved by the scheduling committee. Tournament requests still need to be submitted in the standard format for consideration.
The July 15th deadline will still apply as it is currently written in the bylaws, except that the applicable time frame will start September 1st instead of August 31st.
The proper format for submitting tournaments is shown below:
Tournament Name (if known)
Location of Tournament
Primary requested date
Secondary requested date
Events to be Sanctioned (Open Mixed Epee, Y14 Mix Saber, Cadet Women’s Epee, etc.)
The tournaments must be listed in priority order if you are submitting more than one. If they are listed in chronological order then that will be determined to also be their priority order. If the tournament is run over more than a single day, then you must list which events will be fenced on which days. Event times within each day are not required.
