Waitlist Update - Every effort has been made to accommodate waitlisted fencers. Any remaining waitlisted fencers will now only be graduated in as we receive notice of withdrawals. An exception has been made to the tournament refund policy and "event fee" refunds will be issued if we are notified of withdrawal no later than November 3 and the slot can be filled from the waitlist.
Armorers will be at the venue on Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. for fencers wishing to do early equipment check.
On tournament day all fencers must enter through the Sherman Ave doors. Lines to enter the venue will be very long at times, as building security requires everyone to pass through metal detectors and submit to bag search. Please plan your travel accordingly. All sepectators must remain in the upper mezzanine or in the bleachers; the only exception is for Y10 parents, who may be on the fencing floor. Only credentialed coaches will be allowed on the fencing floor.
Online registration for all events of the Neil Lazar RYC/RJCC will open on June 20, 2022, and end October 23, 2022, with regular and late fee periods as noted in "Event Fee Details. It is your responsibility to be aware of fee period deadlines, as no reminders will be sent.
All events will be capped and entry is on a first-come first-served basis – no exceptions. Caps may be adjusted depending on registrations in each event and to ensure a daily balanced schedule. Once the event cap has been reached fencers will be placed on a wait list. Fencer must supply a payment method to join the wait list and be eligible for graduation into the event. Wait-listed entry without payment method is considered pending and your position will drop below completed wait listed entries. Wait lists will also be cleared on a first-come first-served basis.

EQUIPMENT CHECK/ARMORY PREPARATION
Refer to the Athlete's Handbook, Section 2.17, page 50, for equipment requirements for domestic tournaments.
There will be full equipment check. To help the line move quickly, do the following:
• Do not bring your fencing bag into the line; it is a tripping hazard.
• Make sure mask, glove, and lame do not have tears or holes. You may not repair your equipment with tape.
• Lames need to be right-side-out and zipped. Armorer will not zip it up, and may refuse to check it if it arrives at their table unzipped.
• Separate cords from each other. If you present a clump of body cords all together it takes a long time to untangle them. Take off all previous inspection tapes from body cords and mask cords.
• When called to the armorer desk take everything out of your mask, and place your equipment on the armorer's table.
