We are very excited for the Capitol Clash coming up on January 18-20. We are at the Gaylord National in the main exhibit hall area in the Lower Atrium. Below are some important announcements:

Automated Check-In Requirements - Very important to read!

This tournament will feature automated check-in if you meet the below requirements. The link to the my account area below offers an easy way to download your membership card, which you must have available to register automatically.

SYC and RCC events require birth year verification to compete. If you are currently birth year verified, there is nothing you need to do other than bring a copy of your membership card either printed or on your phone.

You can check your current birth year verified status by visiting: https://member.usafencing.org/my/account

Then, click on the "My membership card" link for the correct fencer or yourself. Once your card is downloaded, it must say "DOB Verified: Y" on it. If it does not, you can contact the national office with a picture of your birth certificate or passport at information@usafencing.org and ask to be birth year verified.

Making sure you are birth year verified prior to the tournament will allow you to skip our manual check-in line and will save a significant amount of time each day. It can take several days for the office to process these requests, so we encourage you to contact them today.

For SYC and RCC competitors, if you are not birth year verified with "DOB Verified: Y" prior to the tournament, you will need to bring a copy of a birth certificate or passport to the tournament and use our manual check-in area.

Check-In Times

The times posted on the tournament website are for close of check-in and are now final. Pools will be posted to our live results website and monitors within the venue within 20 minutes after the close of check-in.

Please check your event schedule: https://member.usafencing.org/details/tournaments/3855

You must check in each day for each event you are competing in.

Armory

Our armory will be available for checking in equipment on Friday evening starting at 5pm. Those in line by 7pm can check their equipment on Friday evening. The venue will open at 7am on tournament days. While we have a large contingent of armorers. please expect longer lines the first morning in particular and plan accordingly. You only need to check your equipment one time for the tournament.

Parking

Discounted Gaylord parking is available to all competitors and spectators. To take advantage of this, please bring your parking pass with you to the venue. An attendant will be stationed near the check in desk to process your discount. Venue and additional information can be found on the event page.

Club Changes / Classification Cutoff

The bout committee will be pulling membership and classification information on January 15th. If you wish to make a club change, it should be done on the membership website prior to that date. We are not able to make any club changes at the tournament.  Classifications used for the tournament will be as recognized by the national office on January 15th.
