I'll be going to Slovakia for about a month, and I would like to know what I would need to know and do to be able to referee fencing while there. For the record, I am a USFA rated referee (10 in foil, 8 in epee, 10 in sabre). Has anyone ever refereed a fencing event in a country outside one's own? Would I need to contact the Slovak Fencing Federation about my status, or would I just contact the specific clubs I'm interested in refereeing at? Would it be acceptable to direct the bouts themselves in French (I know very little Slovak)? Thank y'all very much!
