    Smaller Strip Dimensions

    We're laying out strips at our new club space and found that there is less space for run off than we thought there would be. We heard that there may be an alternate layout that is a bit shorter, possibly in the rules for local or regional competitions. Has anyone heard of that?

    It's in the Ops manual...I'd have to look up the actual rule, but for local events that aren't qualifers, you can go with 1 meter wide by 12 meters long.

    Edit: Here's the link to the Ops manual http://assets.usoc.org/assets/docume...Ops_Manual.pdf

    Page 3-2....section C5 "Local: Fencing strips need to be at least 1 meter wide and 12 meters long, with
    adequate run-off."

    There's more to the rule, of course, but that's the gist.

    Need fencing equipment? See me at H.O.M. Fencing Supply

    Going to your first tournament? Read "Choose yer weapon, Laddie (or: Dude, where's my foil?)"
